Graduation playlist


Hannah Merrill

“Bitter Sweet Symphony” by the Verve: this song will definitely catalyze tears for yourself and the countless relatives coming to watch you walk the stage. Play carefully, bitter sweet tears rarely end quickly.

“Good Riddance” by Green Day: of course you have heard of the the most classic graduation song of all time. Another tear jerker, another though provoker, another piece of evidence that graduation is all too dramatic.

“I Love College” by Asher Roth: on an entirely different note, Roth’s classic ode to collegiate debauchery will get all high school graduates excited about their future prospects, and turning 21.

“Strut” by The Cheetah Girls: many seniors, including myself are anxious about walking across the stage. Play this song before to ensure a confident, sassy experience.

“When I Grow Up” by The Pussycat Dolls: although a tad cheesy and hard to understand, the all female power group strikes a cord with this senior facing the real world.
