All good things must come to an end. The period leading up to graduation can be a particularly emotional and bittersweet time for students. Leaving school - and your friends - can be exciting, stressful and even scary. In the months of May and June, millions of American college and high school students will be finding this out first hand – and our hearts go out to them. No matter how you felt about your school years, chances are you have a graduation memory. A lot of us have one song in particular that takes us back to that fateful day every time we hear it.
Here, in no particular order, are a few songs that remind the GigMasters staff of the day we picked up our diplomas:
It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday - Boyz II Men
School’s Out – Alice Cooper
We Are The Champions – Queen
What A Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
Forever Young – Bob Dylan
The Graduation Song – Vitamin C
In My Life – The Beatles
Today – The Smashing Pumpkins
