Graduation is around the corner and so we needed a playlist of the best graduation songs, because a great playlist makes life better for just about everything.
Anticipation is in the air. There’s an excitement that summer is within our grasp. But there’s also a sense of transition. It’s graduation time and many of us or our friends are moving on to bigger and better things. To deal with the mixed bag of emotions, we created a playlist of the best graduation songs that speaks to friendship, nostalgia and moving on to whatever life has in store. Dry your eyes, hug your friends and give a listen. It’s not goodbye…it’s I’ll see ya later!
Jordin Sparks- One Step at a Time
Nothing like inspiration and a great pair of heels…
Skillet- Say Goodbye
A tearjerker. For sure.
All-American Rejects- The Last Song
“As I leave, will you be the someone to say goodbye
As I leave will you be someone to wipe your eye
My foot is out the door and you can’t stop me now.”
Good grief. Will someone pass the hankies?
