This is definitely one of the most memorable moments of your life – Graduation. Not only does it mark the end of an era, it also symbolises the beginning of your next life chapter.

It probably won’t really sink in that you’re about to graduate until you walk across the stage, and accept the scroll of paper that you’ve worked so hard to get. Only then will you realise – university is over. The past few years of blood, sweat and tears have all contributed towards this very moment. Whether you’re going to get emotional, or get drunk and “party like it’s 1999” – you’re going to need a top-notch graduation playlist.

Graduation is a big event – so, it’s only right it has some bangers to go with it.

1. The Black Eyed Peas – Gotta Feeling

I gotta feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night. Get ready to celebrate graduation in style with this absolute bop from 2009.

2. Fun – We are Young

Graduation is your right of passage into the world of work. However, you still have time to celebrate and enjoy the moment. Tonight, you are young.

3. Boyz II Men – End of the Road

The end of an era – or, as Boyz II Men put it, the end of the road. Well, as far as university goes anyway. There’s always time to get emotional, and this is the song to do it to. 

4. Drake – Started from the Bottom

Started in first year now you here (at graduation…), uh.

Keeping the good vibes flowing – this is definitely one to get you moving. Get yo’ funk on with Pharrell.
