dd just told me the class picked their graduation song today.  I was a bit confused thinking it would be the Pomp and Circumstance March, but apparently each class chooses a song or two to be played right after that.


Her class chose the theme song from The Breakfast Club movie - 

Dont You Forget About Me by Simple Minds.



does your child's h.s. do this?  if so, what song did they choose?

I can't remember the name of it - but my DD's school was given one of John Mayers songs the one that goes "I wanna run through the halls of my high school, I wanna scream at the top of my lungs"...Nobody really cared about the song to be honest.

   " No such thing " is the name of the song.

Our HS uses Pomp & Circumstance.

Oh gosh yes.  Older dd's was "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan, played over a slide show.  There wasn't a dry eye in the place.  Younger dd's was "Here's To The Night" by Eve 6, and since it had just come out the year before EVERYONE knew it, and sang along.  It was an anthem.

Yeah - a few of the parents had eyes raised at that song, but the kids loved it, especially the "top of my lungs" bit :P

They didn't get to choose it?

It was a choice between that song or another song, that was slower and had a nicer set of lyrics (can't even remember it now) but they all wanted the fun song. Nobody wanted to add any other songs or anything. DD really wanted to suggest a few songs but she got shut down very quickly
