Hey guys,

I'm having a graduation party soon and it's a relatively formal one. My dad asked me to perform a song and well... I'm obliging the request.

The issue is I need a song to play. I'm leaning towards In My Life by the Beatles seeing as it's a semi-germane song, but I'd prefer recommendations of similar or more appropriate/"better" songs to play. I was also thinking of Stop this Train by John Mayer, but I think the tone of the song, though the message is powerful, is a little somber for the occasion.

I'm open to all skill levels and genres. Also, it'll be just me playing acoustic guitar and singing.

Thank you for all help in advance

I remember when I graduated back in the day, some guys tried to play 'time of your life', and the microphone wasn't set up right and no one could hear the singing. The guy actually cried. anyway.

You should sing Bob Dylan's The times they are a changin'.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

I almost tried out to play Steve Vai's "I'm the hell outta here" at my graduation. Decided I'd rather not make a fool of myself.

But you should totally do it.

Tell this man you don't dig The Carpenters:




For real, The Carpenters are the bomb. I'd play the Green Day song, but i'd rather hear something different and less typical of high school graduation. Plus, it's Green Day VS The Carpenters dude.

Yeah, but the typical teenage vagina tingles more at Green Day than the Carpenters

Well...I guess I can't argue with that logic.

I Love To Say ****-The Murderdolls!!!

Maybe a cover of a classic song that everyone knows? Not even if it was originally whatever genre you want to play. Looking at your profile, it looks like you like anything spanning from rock, to hard rock, to punk. So why not do one of those covers which is awesome, but sort of puts a smile on your face? You know?

At my graduation they sang Miley Cyrus, The Climb.
The singers were better sounding than she is, but still...it wasn't a great choice imo.
