High school band String Theory of North Penn High School performed a very special medley, titled Circle Of Life, for their graduating class during the end of the year wrap up Reflections program.

For twelve enjoyable minutes, they played a special twelve pop song medley, one from each year that they were in school.

After opening with the Lion King’s Circle Of Life, they started with 1999 and The Backstreet Boys’ I Want It That Way, and continued through 2003 with Outcast’s Hey Yea, and wrapped it all up with the 2000 Vitamin C hit, Graduation Song Friends Forever.

You know you’re doing something right when the audience immediately started singing along.  




Update 6/16: Better video has been released.

There are plenty of commencement speeches given by politicians, comedians, and celebrities, but what about the Internet? You know YouTube has reached the big leagues when famous YouTubers are asked to give a commencement speech. 

And no YouTubers are more worthy of being the first to speak at graduation than comedy musicians . The dynamic duo were invited to speak at the 2012 graduation of their former high school, Harnett Central, located in Angier, North Carolina.

Naturally, they snuck in one of their songs.

Most graduation ceremonies are long, boring, and dull, as if the school is trying to give students one last taste of high school.

But that wasn’t the case at Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas. They gave their graduates the opportunity to perform a synchronized celebration dance, titled I Had The Time Of My Life, to a mix of Black Eyed Peas hits. 

The video published by  is featured on TheFW, HuffingtonPost, and KissElPaso.

High school graduates are always anxious to finish with the ceremonies and get on with the evenings partying, but students and their families at Absegami High School were rushing to finish the formalities for much more serious reasons. 

An enormous funnel cloud was forming just behind the graduation, and as the grads threw up their hats, students and family quickly started to run for shelter. The video, published by , already has over 45,000 hits.

Ahh, June. The last few schools left are all conducting their closing ceremonies. A time of positive speeches and figurative pats on the back, right??

Breaking away from the norm of the ‘everyone is a winner’ mentality, Mr. McCullough took a different approach. As commencement speaker, he gave the graduating class of Wellesley High School a big spoonful of reality, with no sugar on the side. 

You’re not special, you’re not exceptional.”
