Best goodbye songs?

75 posts in this topic

It's graduation time, and you know what that usually means - video montages of everyone with sad, goodbye music in the background. My video montage project this year isn't for the graduating class though - it's for the advisors of our Key Club who are stepping down after 20some-odd years. Anyone have any ideas for some good goodbye music (music with an overall "goodbye" theme to it). Here's a list I've compiled already:

Time of Your Life - Green Day

Graduation - Vitamin C

Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

My Immortal - Evanescence

I want to try not to use Time of Your Life or Graduation since they're OVERUSED so much. All suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

Keep in mind I'm looking for "Goodbye" songs specifically, so please don't just post any sad songs you can think of. I found another post for general sad songs.

a good goodbye song is closing time by semisonic. although if you want a thank you song (since these ppl were your advisors for so long) i'd suggest wind beneath my wings by bette midler.

Good idea. "Closing Time" is an awesomely awesome song, and I'm seriously considering using it. Hopefully, no one objects to the various alcoholic references (though I doubt anyone will).

"Wind Beneath My Wings" is a good idea too since they did help quite a bit, and I might try to merge that in with the other songs in the montage. Thanks a lot.
