Everybody remembers their graduation song or graduation songs. As teenagers do, we took a certain ownership of these songs and applied them to our lives. The problem is, many graduation songs are overused and overexposed- almost predicable.
If you are looking for something a little different to celebrate and look back on those high school or college years, here are some slightly less than traditional song choices for your graduation. I hope you enjoy!

NO SUCH THING
By John Mayer
A great graduation song with lyrics which will make everyone recognize the significance of this occasion. The song takes a slightly critical look backwards, but gives way to a very inspiring vision of the future.
by Alice Cooper
Okay here me out on this one. My own high school used to play this song over the PA system after the last day of school every year. It never failed to drive excitement into us all, especially the seniors. Definitely a unique song for graduation, but thrown into a longer graduation video montage it fits perfectly.
by Natasha Bedingfield
I’ll admit it: I can’t get enough of this song. It’s definitely a girly song, but it rings true with everyone and is a perfect graduation song. It is also easily recognizable and will get many in the audience to sing along.
from the Musical “Wicked”
I wouldn’t have recommended this song 6 years ago when I graduated (EVERYBODY was using it). Today it is still a recognizable but unique song for a graduation, but not nearly as overexposed. It’s a touching song, so expect some tears.
SEASONS OF LOVE
from the musical “RENT”
Much like “For Good” this song was horribly overexposed 6 years ago, but for good reason. Jonathan Larson’s moving gospel about friendship and love fits into the graduation scene so perfectly it almost feels like it could have been written just for that. It will also get many people belting the chorus as well.
