Well, sorry to remind you all, but graduation is just around the corner. If you’re graduating, these songs are going to mostly make you sad with a little bit of happy. Just a warning though – if you listen to these songs with your friends while consuming alcohol, you are going to cry and it is going to be a mess.

1. Good Riddance – Green Day

Come on, you can’t listen to this song without the past four years flashing before your eyes.

2. Friends Forever – Vitamin C

You’re going to cry even if you’re sober and listening to this with your friends.

3. Vienna – Billy Joel

In general, I’m just a huge fan of this song. But it also reminds you to enjoy your youth.

4. Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield

This song was performed at Degrassi’s prom so like how can you not love it?

5. I’ll Be There For You – The Rembrandts

The perfect theme song from Friends!

6. The Climb – Miley Cyrus


7. True Colors – Cyndi Lauper

Trust me on this one.

8. Soco Amaretto Lime – Brand New

It’s all about those times you sat on the roof or porch of your house during the day and got drunk with your best friends.

9. Swing Life Away – Rise Against

“I’ve got some friends, some that I hardly know, we’ve had some times I wouldn’t trade for the world.”

10. Breathe – Anna Nalick

Seriously, breathe, you’re gonna be alright after you graduate!

11. All The Small Things – Blink 182

It’s the little things that count the most.

12. What’s My Age Again – Blink 182

You can never have enough Blink 182

13. Drops of Jupiter – Train

Sing it loud and proud with your best friends.

14. Give It Up – The Format

(Same lead singer as FUN so seriously listen to it.)

15. We Are Young – Fun

Cause we’re young.

16. Photosynthesis – Frank Turner

“So I guess I can confess that I am starting to get old…”

17. Time After Time – Quietdrive (Cyndi Lauper cover)

It’s a classic!

18. Brat Pack – The Rocket Summer

All about kicking back with your friends.

19. Teenage Dirtbag – Wheatus

Even though we aren’t teenagers anymore…

20. American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

“She couldn’t help thinking that there was a little more to life somewhere else. After all, it was a great big world with lots of places to run to.”

21. Free Falling – Tom Petty

I guess you could listen to the John Mayer version, but like Tom Petty…

22. Started From the Bottom – Drake

Now we’re here!

23. Closing Time – Semisonic

Enough said.

Comment your graduation songs below and I might add them to the list! Now the next time it’s sunny and warm: get your friends, get some alcohol, and get drunk and cry on your porch happily/sloppily.
