Watch out world, the class of 2012 is ready to rock. Still no jetpacks, but lots of cool communication devices. Play these on them to inspire:
- “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan. Make this a top priority, science grads!
- “The Future” by Prince. “I’ve seen the future and it works.!” Make it so.
- “Be True to Your School” by the Beach Boys. Those alumni associations can be great networking opportunities.
- “Education” by the Kinks. No one can take it away from you. (Feel free to poke the first person who says this to you at your graduation party.)
- “Another Brick in the Wall” by Pink Floyd. The rigidity of your curriculum will serve you well in the world of modern business.
- “You Get What You Give” by New Radicals. The prime equation of the metaphysical universe.
- “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills Nash and Young. They’ll listen just as carefully as you did.
- “Day of the Locusts” by Bob Dylan. Inspired by an actual graduation ceremony where Dylan recieved a doctorate from Princeton. (He can only do minor surgery.)
- “My Old School” by Steely Dan. Look, it’s already time for the ten year reunion.
- Pomp and Circumstance” by Edward Elgar. The traditional graduation music from the man who also wrote a classic funeral march.
