Inspirational 8th grade graduation songs for 2013?

.I know I'm thinking a little ahead here but for eighth grade grad. we have to sing inspirational songs that will motivate us for high school or sad songs that will show how we will miss our old school. People always end up singing super old like, 70s/80s songs and this year we want to be WAY MORE "OUT THERE". The school is from K-8 so the songs need to be appropriate for younger children and the music teacher would prefer something that might be playable on guitar/piano though it's not necessary. There are only 11 boys in the grade and 5 girls so no parts just for girls/just for guys please! (we really don't like people able to pick out individual voices, especially us girls) It would also be great if there were some songs that we all might like because the guys like 60s-80s music and the girls don't mind that though we would rather sing something more modern. Some songs we already have are: HOLD ONTO THE MEMORIES by Corey Tynan GOODBYE HIGHSCHOOL by Kaitee Val Dal YESTERDAY'S DREAM by Donna Cruz YOUTH OF TODAY by Amy MacDonald UNWRITTEN by Natasha Bedingfield TODAY MY LIFE BEGINS by Bruno Mars NO BOUNDARIES by Kris Allen THIS WORLD IS YOURS by Julie Durban THIS IS ME by Skye Sweetnam LIVING YOUR DREAMS by Raini Rodriguez I'M YOURS by Jason Mraz TIME OF YOUR LIFE by Green Day ALL THESE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE by the Killers KEEP LOOKING UP by Landon Pigg I'M MOVING ON by Rascal Flatts LIVE WHILE WE'RE YOUNG by 1D GOOD TIME by Owl City/Carly Rae Jepsen THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES by Queen HOME by Phillip Phillips Any songs welcome and thanks in advance! P.S.- We also need some ideas for the entrance/exit so anything out there is welcome! :)


  1. These Days- Foo Fighters or The Kids From Yesterday by My Chemical Romance? They're the only ones I can really think of. I would suggest High School Never Ends but I don't think it's appropriate.
  2. "September" by Daughtry "Break Away" by Kelly Clarkson “How to Save a Life” ~The Fray “What about now?” ~ Chris Daughtry
