By: Gabe Trujillo

It’s almost that time of year again. You know, high school graduation season, the times of caps and gowns, tassels and traditions. In a little over a month, many high schools across the country will see the careers of their seniors come to an end. For the past four years, these students have made their way through the trial and tribulations of high school with one goal in mind, graduation. Their aspirations of obtaining a high school education will no longer be just a shimmering light at the end of the tunnel; it will soon become a reality.

And like all great accomplishments, earning your high school diploma should be celebrated and remembered. One of the best ways to honor this achievement is by choosing a great song to represent your graduation. In many occasions, not just high school graduations, music is used to help give meaning and emotion to these events and truly make them memorable.

That is the true beauty of music; it makes an occasion unforgettable and whenever you hear a particular song it reminds you of this special accomplishment. I know that whenever I hear Time of Your Life by Green Day, I automatically get transported back to 2001 and my high school graduation ceremony. Every time I hear that song, I can see myself getting my diploma from my Principal as all my family and friends cheered me on.

So in order to help you celebrate your own high school graduation, here are the top seven songs that will make your high school graduation a truly momentous occasion.
