As graduation season gets closer and closer, nights of driving around with the windows down and music up become more common. People start creating videos cataloguing their high school experience. Playlists are made on Spotify just to cry over. At least one of these songs is bound to make an appearance at any of those occasions, guaranteed.

 Feeling invincible and like you can run the world? Maybe you can't do that just yet, but according to Luke Bryan, you do run this town. This is a song that celebrates being in your prime and at the top of your game.

2. The Head and the Heart - "Rivers and Roads"


For those with a more melancholy, indie taste there is "Rivers and Roads" by The Head and the Heart. The band uses this song to talk about friends leaving for better places (i.e. college), but knowing they are only separated by rivers and roads.

3. Modest Mouse - "Missed the Boat"


All the division and drama in high school is just so silly. Think about it: graduation is the last time your entire grade will be together ever again. Don't you want that to count? Stop missing the boat and allow yourselves to come together, celebrate and be happy.

8. Never Shout Never - "Big City Dreams"


Back when the class of 2014 was in middle school (and probably going through their emo phase), Christofer Drew Ingle had just started making quirky acoustic music that separated itself from the Top 40 singles of the time. This particular song talks about a path very similar to his own-- ditching the small town scene for big city dreams.

9. Wicked - "For Good"


Think of this as a thank you to every single person who has helped you become who you are today. There are no two more powerful voices than that of Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth (which is what makes it such a powerful choice for graduation)!
