Top Graduation Songs- Dave After Dark’s Favorites

As we go through month we go on a road trip back to the past, a time of graduation. Do you remember yours? Do you remember the songs on the dial during it? These songs right here always take me back to high school, here's my top 5.


The Goo Goo Dolls- Name



The success of “Name” marked a change in The Goo Goo Dolls sound toward a more polished, commercial direction, it was “Name” that made the band popular. When ever I think of this song I think of my final moments of a senior, the line “we grew up way to fast” sticks out the most to me.



Eve 6 – Here’s To The Night



With lyrics like “Here's to the nights we felt alive, Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry, Here's to goodbye tomorrow's gonna come too soon” what else would it make you think of? Every event I ever DJ I always end my night to this song. It's such a song that makes you reflect on the past, and the future. During my senior year I used to blast this song all the time to make me feel good about the future. It peaked at #30 on the US Billboard Hot 100 back in 2001.



Green Day- Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)



Every time I hear this song I take a trip down memory lane to 2003. My oldest sister graduated high school, and we had this song at the end of her graduation tape. I always think of graduation during this song. “I hope you had the time of your life”. Also this song makes me think about getting old, and how the real world can stink at times!



John Mayer – No Such Thing



Our friend John Mayer has had many big hits through out the years, but “No Such Thing” always gets my mind back to high school. It makes me think of the things that I thought were so important to learn, actually haven't came in handy, yet.



Simple Minds – Don’t You (Forget About Me)



“Don't You (Forget About Me)” is a song known for its being in the soundtrack to the film The Breakfast Club and performed by the band Simple Minds in 1985. It talks about not forgetting someone, and don't ever forget your roots.
