Songs for Grade School/Junior High Graduation

What song did you have to sing for grade school/junior high graduation?

That song “Wind Beneath My Wings” made popular in 1989 by Bette Midler was the official graduation song for my 8th grade class. We had to vote on our class song. I don’t recall what it beat out though… probably some nice traditional Lutheran hymn.

The debate between that pop song and a Lutheran hymn caused quite a stir at this nice Christian grade school. All the dippy girls wanted to do that song and they won out (I was all for the nice hymn). Some of the students were afraid that twenty years from then we would be embarrassed that was our class song. It was quite the drama. Now it’s just funny that our class had to sing that lame-o song at graduation.

    We didn’t have grade school or jr. high graduation. That ceremony was saved for graduating from high school

  3. Amanda Hinojosa December 13, 2005 at 4:51 pm #

    Yea, I think that’s a Great song. It was my aunt’s song when she passed away 3 years ago. I miss her a lot and that song is one that you can remember for whatever occasion. I hope to use that song this year for my graduation as an 8th grader!

  4. mike February 15, 2006 at 5:12 pm #

    I’m going through this right now they want Pomp and Circumstance I think Kings in Queens by Michael Tolcher is the best one

  5. samantha March 3, 2006 at 5:58 pm #

  10. Kenzie April 5, 2006 at 4:47 pm #

    Closing Time by Semisonic is a great grad song—thats the one my jr. high is using. Hope I can help! <3 Kenzie

  11. Tom Saaristo April 5, 2006 at 5:40 pm #

    I can’t really see “Closing Time” being THAT fitting for graduation, especially Jr. High since it has to do with the drinking in a bar, closing the bar, and taking someone home … I can’t disagree that it’s a great song, I love it, but the message isn’t appropriate for graduation. I’ll bet you’re glad I’M not your principal, eh Kenzie? LOL!

  12. Tink April 9, 2006 at 1:10 pm #

    That greenday song sounds great!

  13. alicia April 10, 2006 at 8:00 pm #

  29. andrew April 30, 2006 at 6:22 pm #

    what about “still fighting it” by ben folds

  30. Brooke May 1, 2006 at 6:11 pm #

    a great graduation song would be The Calling days of our lives.

  31. Anonymous May 2, 2006 at 2:08 pm #

    Gone So Young by Amber Pacific is pretty good, but you would have to change the melody cuz the song is a little too casual to some people’s standards; either than that the lyrics are totally rad E>

  32. Jackkers May 2, 2006 at 7:26 pm #

    yo wussup I’m jus sayin that the Josh Grobenn song is pretty good.

  33. Matt May 3, 2006 at 12:28 pm #

    Im going to graduate from highschool soon, so ive compiled a list of some songs i think are a good fit for a highschool or jr high graduation The Calling – Our Lives Five For Fighting – 100 years Five For Fighting – Superman The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony Oasis – Champagne Supernova Nickelback – Photograph Eve 6 – Heres to the Night The Ataris – In This Diary Third Eye Blind – Graduate Rise Against – Swing Life Away Oasis – Wonderwall Switchfoot – You Kenny Chesney – Young I know some of them do not have the perfect meaning but they are all suitable songs, check them out if you havent heard them.

  34. Tom Saaristo May 3, 2006 at 12:46 pm #

    You have great taste in music, Matt

  35. chelsea May 3, 2006 at 5:05 pm #

    a good song for a graduation is “on the ride” by Aly and AJ or it could be at the graduation dance!

  36. chelsea May 3, 2006 at 5:07 pm #

    “wind beneath my wings” is also a GREAT SONG for graduation.

    another great song is “everybody’s free ( to wear sunscreen) by baz luhrmann. its amazing..brought tears to my eyes. its the one with the guy who is basically giving a graduation speech, and is sharing advice.

  47. whitney May 9, 2006 at 10:36 pm #

    please remember by leann rimes might be a good song.

  48. Michelle May 10, 2006 at 1:51 am #

    I am putting together a slide show for a fifth grade continuation and plan on the opening with kindergarten photos (individual and class) to the song” A Whole New World”(from Aladdin) Followed by photos from school events and field trips to “These are the Special Times”. Next come staff/student photos to Kenny Rodgers “You’ve decorated my life” last will be 5th grade photos and a photo of their new middle school to “Break Away”. Most of the photos have been scanned. Does any one know of any good software that is easy to use? I need to arrange the photos and mix music so I don’t need to play an entire song. I tried photo story # a free download it pretty cool but has 2 glitches 1) you can only start a song at the beginning however you can end it wherever you want 2) I can’t figure out how to dump my entire file of pictures into it and with several hundred photos it will take forever to put the pictures in individually.

  49. Pam May 10, 2006 at 8:18 am #

    Have you tried Photodex’s, prowshow gold? It is a great slide show maker, and you can edit your music too

  50. Pam May 10, 2006 at 8:19 am #

    A good song for graduation is Friends are Friends forever by Michael W. Smith

  51. Angela May 10, 2006 at 8:08 pm #

    Another good suggestion is the Power of the Dream sung by Celine Dion.

  52. Jerra May 11, 2006 at 11:03 am #

    Ok.. Carrie Underwood’s Whenever you Remember is the best 🙂

  53. Allie May 11, 2006 at 3:16 pm #

    Well… I’m graduating soon. I was wondering what you guys think of “You’ll be in my heart” from Tarzan? That’s what the 9th graders at my school are fighting for… It’s between that, and “Time of your life” By Green Day… But yeah.. Thanks.

  54. Emily May 13, 2006 at 8:07 pm #

    Here’s a really good song, it was written for the home improvement season finale and it’s so fitting. We’ve got it all – Kenny Rogers There’s so many more but here are some that haven’t been named and probably shouldn’t be missed. Fields of Gold -Sting Say goodnight, not goodbye -Beth Neilsen Chapman I’m Moving on -Rascal Flatts

  56. Chelsea May 14, 2006 at 4:08 pm #

    If you’re looking for a Christian song for graduation, Remember Me by Mark Shultz is great. My 8th grade class is using it for our graduation.

  60. jennifer May 16, 2006 at 9:42 pm #

  62. Anna May 18, 2006 at 10:16 am #

    I think Green Day’s “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” is fitting, as well as “I Will Remember You” by Sarah Mclachlan!!!

  63. Lacey Luscombe May 18, 2006 at 4:26 pm #

    Slow Marching Band by Jethro Tull. Good song for graduation. Not really about band, more about walking on and not looking back. Very nice.

  67. Sue Crispin May 22, 2006 at 8:50 pm #

    My students in eighth grade last year selected “You’re My Best Friend” by John Deacon of Queen. The words were great, and it was a fun song to sing.

  68. corrie ann May 24, 2006 at 5:24 pm #

    Thanks to all of you. Your suggestions have been ever so helpful in choosing a graduation song for my class. I now have a list of over ten songs for our slide show. As I listen to each of them, I try not to cry. I just know that on my graduation night I will not be able to hold back the tears. And I might have to say a valivictorian speech. Oh dear. I wish I could be of some help with you and your choosing of a graduation song, but all the songs I am using are already on the page! Congradulations and good luck to all the graduates of ’06. Graduation at my school will deffinatly be unforgettable with the help of all the people who suggested songs. Once again, thanks you oh so much! I’m not going to be able to stop crying now, oh my. Writting my speech isn’t going to be any easyer with mascara runing down my cheeks! For the third and final time thanks you so, so much!

    A good one is “These are Days” by 10,000 Maniacs. I’m using it for my 6th graders’ graduation slide show, along with “Graduation” by Vitamin C. I still need more ideas, though!

  77. Tom Saaristo May 30, 2006 at 3:01 pm #

    So Dream Big by Ryan Schupe and There you’ll be by Faith Hill are good. Also Soco Amaretto Line by Brand New and It’ll All Work Out by Tom petty

  85. KT June 4, 2006 at 11:34 am #

    bone thugs n harmony – “crossroads” i know its about death, but if you think about it, its also a great grad song, just think of it as making bad choices when you’re older when it talks about the devil in your face lol.

  86. Aly June 6, 2006 at 6:40 pm #

    I think that Don’t You(Forget About Me) by Simple Minds is a great graduation song!!!!!!

  87. Anonymous June 6, 2006 at 10:33 pm #

    I’d also try “Union”: By The Black Eyed Peas. Kelly Clarkson’s “A Monment Like This”

  88. jaicee June 7, 2006 at 3:30 pm #

    wow this website helped ALOT!! so far here’s to the night by eve 6 is the best song ive herd so far. BUT green day is a MUST to use at grad!!

    More Songs: Dream On – Aero Smith School’s Out – Alice Cooper I Hope You Dance – LeAnn Womack Save Tonight – Eagle Eye Cherry Our Lives- The Calling Photograph – Nickelback Best for High Schoolers The Nigh Before (Life Goes on) – Carrie Underwood – This song is great because it talks about the night before leaving for college. I tear up nearly every time I graduate on Saturday and we’re using Eve 6’s Heres to the Night which makes me tear up as well. Congrats class of 2006!!

    Seasons of Love from the musical/movie Rent is a gr8 graduation song for a group to sing. The 8th grade @ my school did it this year and it was perfect. I also like good ridance (time of your life) by greenday and graduation (friends forever) by vitiman c

  92. ceci June 7, 2006 at 9:47 pm #

    please remember – leann rhymes graduation song- vitamin c don’t you forget – era cinema paradiso – Ennio Morricone this are slow and sentimental songss that if you are in the mood…they will make you cry

  93. Robert Kukla June 8, 2006 at 9:11 pm #

    I think the song Stand By Me is really cool for a graduation, also the song We Go Together from Grease is cool.

  94. Margaret June 9, 2006 at 12:38 pm #

    I’m making a scrapbook for one of my best friends and he’s a senior. I have a few songs in mind for his graduation, but are there any others out there? If any one has any suggestions that would be GREAT. Thanx!!!

  95. Tammy June 9, 2006 at 2:32 pm #

    I agree with most of the graduation songs, but want to add Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield For prom – I’m sorry, but this is a celebration and you need songs that reflect that – such as… Celebration by Kool and the Gang Let the Good Times Roll by Cars Get this Party started(censored version) by Pink these r all totally awesome songs for prom

  96. jessica June 9, 2006 at 9:52 pm #

    we belong together is an awesome song. deep feelings in the song, lyrics which really stand out. a verry emotional one for that particualr night. total tear-jerker. on that night YOU WILL cry if u hear this one. her soothing voice, u can hear the pain in it, true and from the heart kinda song. enjoy bitches

  97. CA June 10, 2006 at 7:07 pm #

    Hey all, I hope this would be of some help and not a last minute thing but I graduated from High School in 2005 and the following are songs we used for our Memoribilia DVD’s, Graduation Marching Entrance, Graduation Commencement or either as a song item: “I Need An Angel” – Ruben Studdard “I Believe” – Yolanda Adams (Honey Soundtrack) “I Believe” – Fantasia Burrino “Win” – Brian McKnight “Can’t Take That Away” (Mariah’s Theme) – Mariah Carey “The Prayer” – Yolanda Adams & Donnie McClurkin “Hopeful” – Twista featuring Faith Evans “Flying Without Wings” – Ruben Studdard “Order My Steps” – Mississippi Mass Choir “I Will Remember You” – Sarah McLachlan “I Know I Can” – Nas “The Storm Is Over” – R.Kelly “World’s Greatest” – R.Kelly “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye” – Boys II Men “Not The I But The You In Me” – Anointed “Whenever You Remember” – Carrie Underwood “It Don’t Have To Change” – John Legend “I’ ll Be Missing You” – Puff Daddy featuring Faith Evans “Graduation” – Vitamin C “You Raise Me Up” – Josh Groban “I’ll Be There” – Mariah Carey “He Still Loves Me” – Beyonce (Fighting Temptation Soundtrack) “Can’t Give Up Now” – Mary Mary “I Need You To Survive” – Hezekiah Walker “Breakaway” – Kelly Clarkson “Step By Step” – Whitney Houston “Try It On My Own” – Whitney Houston “I Believe The Children Are The Future” – Whitney Houston “Color of Love” – Boys II Men “I’ll See You When You Get There” (Clean) – Coolio “One Love” – Bob Marley As you can tell we try to incorporate gospel inspirational songs in our graduation as well for we wouldn’t have made it that far without the help of God. I also think that for this year these are good choices: “Unwritten” – Natasha Bedingfield I’m Caribbean so we don’t use “Pomp & Circumstance” at our graduations, we see it as elegant and classical yet boring. As I remember other songs i’ll inform you guys.

    ok so i am graduating from 8th grade this year and i am in a class of about 47. we are a realy cool class we all get along. we all like to have fun. we are just a realy fun class. so i need a realy upbeat song for graduation but i want it to have meaning and it needs to fit with the occasion.. our theme is hollywood

  130. Allison December 21, 2006 at 8:18 am #

    i’m graduating from 8th grade this year too, and i’m class president ,so it’s pretty much up to me to find a song that fits our class. one of my friends told me about a song called “this is a suitbale valedictory” by the scene aesthetic. and it really is an awesome song, but, the only place iv’e been able to find it on is youtube. this song might work for you though, since its upbeat.

  131. Kelly December 27, 2006 at 8:05 pm #

    Hey , Im looking for a song for Gr.8 Grad . It can’t be any rock songs or whatever . Its the entrance song , when we all walk in ( they introduce us ) . If you know of any please respond to my post 🙂 thankyou .

  132. Esra December 31, 2006 at 8:30 am #

    OMG well i think that you should have the song “like an eagle”. its not a rock song or anything, ill try to find the author for you. this song is about letting go and thanking everyone for what you’ve learned and its about being on your own now and i think its puurrrffect for an 8th grade graduation. seriously, bye!

  133. tere January 4, 2007 at 7:20 am #

    the songs lister are great but i would like to add some more; THE JOURNEY – by Lea Salonga THE GIFT and THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL (for the parents) – by Jim Brickman REMEMBER ME THIS WAY from Casper

    Heyy everyonee… i just wanted to say that I hope you Dance- LeeAnn Womack is an awesome song, and very meaningful. “Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens”. meaning that there are road blocks in life, and im not there to help you, but if one door shuts, i hope one more opens,.. its very sad and would be great for grade 8 grad, im singing that song in a few monthes for my grad:)

  137. pinkishot February 11, 2007 at 1:26 am #

    i do not care at all

  138. Chantelle February 22, 2007 at 11:41 am #

    Ok I’m trying out for a duet for my high school graduation and I need desperately a georgous song that is in duet form for a soprano and a bariton singer. The guy I’m trying out with sounds exactly like Josh Groban and if you have ANY advice let me know!

  139. Gabriel February 27, 2007 at 6:32 am #

    Where are the graduation songs here???

  140. in_one_heartbeat February 28, 2007 at 7:02 pm #

  141. Sheila March 2, 2007 at 11:08 pm #

    I’m from a class full of metal heads (27 boys and 8 girls) so we have really no say in music. So i was downloading a song one day and came across The Last Goodbye by Black Lable Society. It isn’t the typical screamy headbanging heavy metal, its suprisingly a nice graduation song that made all the boys and most of the girls happy.

  142. headbanger876 March 5, 2007 at 7:49 pm #

    im having graduation in 9 weeks. can anyone give me a good song? its a catholic school so no swearing or anything bad. send me an email if u got a good one

  143. sarah March 7, 2007 at 8:59 am #

    i like alot if everyones choices. i am working on a grad slide show for my school and i am choosing all classic rock and only one out there song the beatles- hello goodbye for the teachers corey smith- im not gonna cry for the kids and for the end song i think it will be white snake here i goagain

  144. Carrie March 7, 2007 at 8:25 pm #

    Thanks Julio, I could not relate to some of the songs shared because I had never heard of the artist or the song. Our eighth grade graduation will be in a church. Even though all the songs were great I like songs that talk about what I have done and how to handle the things to come. We needed a song for parents, so they can cry, a song for the staff to let them know how much we appreciate them, and a song for us so we can remember each other. You made it so easy. I like kenny Roger’s “you decorate my life for staff” too.

  145. nicole March 8, 2007 at 12:54 am #

    songs we used for our senior class retreat: iris – googoo dolls better together – jack johnson hope they helped:”>

  146. mary smith March 10, 2007 at 4:38 pm #

  147. travis March 11, 2007 at 10:13 pm #

The ‘Friends’ Theme Song) – Whenever You Remember [Carrie Underwood”> – It’s The End Of The Road [Matt Goss”> – The Prayer [Celine Dion feat.

  186. Kay May 20, 2007 at 10:27 pm #

    I just wanted to let you guys know that the Green Day song that everyone keeps mentioning was acctually written sarcastically. I just thought it was funny that like every person loves it as a grad. song and it is totally dissing their real feelings.

  187. webmaster May 21, 2007 at 9:51 am #

    If you want all the mothers to cry then pick: find your wings by Mark Harris. You can get it off of itunes. I’m using this for the church slideshow of the seniors.

  188. webmaster May 21, 2007 at 10:02 am #

    Also preview the video and you’ll see why this is perfect for you people out there doing slideshows for graduation. Find your wings-Mark Harris

  189. dan May 21, 2007 at 7:27 pm #

    open road by bryan adams is the best, i used it for my slideshow!!

    On our cd this year for “grand march” we have : 1. Rascal Flatts – My Wish 2. Christina Aguilera – These are Special Times 3. Eve 6 – Here’s to the Night 4. Tim Mcgraw – Please Remember Me 5. Remember Me This Way – From The Movie Casper 6. Faith Hill – There you’ll be 7. Michelle Branch – Goodbye to you * These are just a few! 🙂

  191. ohhemgee May 22, 2007 at 8:25 pm #

    There are so many songs that have been already used for graduation so that it’s hard to find an original one. However, a great song that I love is on a Disney World CD, called ‘Remember When’ by Leanne Rhymes. It has a great message–‘every wish, every dream you ever had, just close your eyes; and it will all come rushing back. Fly away, all you need is to believe and remember when.’ Hope this helps!

  192. John May 23, 2007 at 3:13 pm #

    Mark Harris sings a song called “Find Your Wings” and it’s a great song. Here’s some of the lyrics… I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams And that faith gives you the courage To dare to do great things I’m here for you whatever this life brings So let my love give you roots And help you find your wings May passion be the wind That leads you through your days And may conviction keep you strong Guide you on your way May there be many moments That make your life so sweet Oh, but more than memories Really a nice song, especially for the kindergarten group. : )

  193. Jake May 24, 2007 at 5:54 pm #

    Ok, well Photograph by Nickleback isn’t really appropriate because for one it’s talking about like breaking into your school and not graduating. Yes it does mean remembering good times but it doesn’t put out a positive comment. The Calling-Our Lives is a really good song though. Also our grad theme may be James Bond so what song would be good for walking down the aisle?

  194. John May 26, 2007 at 4:25 pm #

    Who’s James Bond?

  195. Blenda May 29, 2007 at 9:00 pm #

  199. adrianna June 11, 2007 at 3:43 pm #

    my bf and i r doing a duet 4 the grade 8 grad assembly, and we really need a song! we were going to do “don’t go breaking my heart” Eloton john. but we thought it might be a bit chessy. any suggestions?

  200. mt June 11, 2007 at 11:03 pm #

    may it be was sung by the 8th graders at grad. I used if I had words (from BABE) into the mystic reach for the sun (polyphonic spree) for a slide show

  201. nozomi June 13, 2007 at 2:45 pm #

    hey the best one so far for me would be all my life- the beatles THE BEST BEYOND BEST it’s good and it talks about friends and stuff a real tear jerker

    Lessons Learned by Carrie Underwood.. The perfect song

  203. Kiara June 15, 2007 at 10:01 pm #

    I don’t know what you might think of this, but “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers is a good song for graduation, i think personally.

  204. lexie June 29, 2007 at 10:54 am #

    I’m not sure if this was mentioned already or not, but “So long, so long” by Dashboard Confessional is a great graduation song.. maybe more for High School though, I don’t know. :0

  205. Kaila!! July 3, 2007 at 10:48 am #

    This year our grade 12 grads used the song: Ride Of Your Life – Oliver James It is a really good song, made me cry!

    -“youll be in my heart”- acapella version- from Tarzan -“what i did for love”- from A Chorus Line -“for good”-from Wicked -“seasons of love”- acapella version- from Rent “everyday”- from high school musical 2 i know hsm2 sounds really stupid, but look at the lyrics: “Once in a lifetime means there s no second chance so I believe than you and me should grab it while we can Make it last forever and never give it back It s our turn, and I m loving where we re at Because this moment s really all we have CHORUS: Everyday of our lives, wanna find you there, wanna hold on tight Gonna run While we re young and keep the faith Everyday From right now, gonna use our voices and scream out loud Take my hand; together we will celebrate, Oh, ev ryday. They say that you should follow and chase down what you dream, but if you get lost and lose yourself what does is really mean? No matter where we re going, it starts from where we are. There s more to life when we listen to our hearts and because of you, I ve got the strength to start CHORUS

    I never got to sing anything..Probably because I have nothing to do with singing. The problem is .. I love to sing by myself and I’m sure I’d love to stand in front of a crowd..I’ll have to do just with acting..

    our senior class song this year C/O 2008 is I’m not gonna cry by corey smith. i think that is a grat song it explains the actual day of graduation perfectly. Everyboday says that they are not gonna cry but everybody does actually end up crying

  228. shannon February 9, 2008 at 1:07 pm #

    two really good ones are… Ryan Cabrera: I Will Remember You Audio Adrenaline: Goodbye Goodbye the other ones i thought of were already up there. goodluck :))

  229. Theresa February 24, 2008 at 8:37 pm #

    I am graduating from eighth grade in May. My class has had a few good suggestions as to what song we should sing. We can actually sing two songs. You see, I go to a Catholic School and our graduation takes place in our church. For that ceremony we need a song that talks about God. We can also pick a song that we like that does not mention God in it to sing at the afterwards social/ceremony thing in our school gym. Right now we have suggestions for Graduation Song by Vitamin C (My personal favorite) Let it Be by the Beatles (I don’t really like that one) I will remember you by Ryan Cabrera (another really good one) I will Remember you by Ryan Cabrera will probably only work for eighth grade graduations because the words go “8 years later, time goes by fast” its a really really really good song. Graduation song by Vitamin C is also so good because it talks about good times that your class has shared and what will become of everybody. If you have any more suggestions please email me *Thank You*

  237. jay March 9, 2008 at 12:27 pm #

    well depends, if its a “romantic” dance and you need an older song i would recommend one of the two.. “Shining Star” by The Manhattans or “Games People Play” by Joe South or if you’re looking for newer songs i would recommend “High School Wifey” by Thizz Kid or “With You” by Chris Brown or “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker. If its just just a dance to just dance then i would i would think these songs; ccrank dat by soulja boy, go girl by pitbull, speaker by david banner, kiss kiss by chris brown, low by flo-rida, free bird by lynrd skynard, sweet child o’ mine by guns n’ roses,you know what it is by TIP, Holla Back Girl by gwen stefani, Rock Star by r.kelly, stay fly by three 6 mafia, and the list goes on.

    “100 Years” by Five For Fighting. This song would be great for people to listen to at graduation.

    I think that these following songs would be perfect! “We go together” – Grease. ( This is the song we’re using.) “Were all in this together” -high school musical “Your a friend in me” “Summer of 69” – Brian Adams. “I think “all summer long” – kid rock would be great but it’s not that appropriate. “Friends Forever” – Vitamen C

  298. Jane May 23, 2009 at 10:34 am #

    You should use “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus!!! it fits great!!!

  299. Chrissy May 26, 2009 at 7:13 pm #

    I am leaving 5th grade and were singing The Climb by Miley Cryus I also think good songs are: Don’t stop believing by Journey, Time of your life by Green Day, Whenever you remember by Carrie Underwood, and The Last Song by the All American Rejects and the list goes on and on

    The best ever version of FOREVER YOUNG is Ray Wilson live in Edinburgh. I’ve used it for three remembrance videos and it has the kind of voice cracking earthiness that makes it seem customized for the photos it accompanies.

    Check out the song Whenever you remember by Carrie Underwood or Something More” by Ryan Malcolm. They’re great songs for 8th grade graduation…made me cry =[

    i need a song for 8th grade graduation…… does anyone have any ideas???? our 8th graders last year used the song “One Step at a Time”

  325. Skye April 14, 2011 at 4:52 pm #

    I think a good song (Even if its kind of littlieish) for an 8th grade graduation is I’ll Always Remember You by Hannah Montana. It’s not as serious as High school graduation, but at the same time, so many people are going to different high schools and it’s just so sad! I’m gonna cry when i sing it.
