American Authors Share the Perfect Graduation Playlist, Featuring Katy Perry + More [LISTEN]

American Authors

American Authors recently shared their awesome prom playlist with us — and now, they’ve put together the perfect graduation mix, featuring everything from Katy Perry‘s ‘Firework’ to Queen’s ‘We Are the Champions’ to the traditional graduation march, ‘Pomp and Circumstance.’

Starting the mix off right, American Authors open the playlist with their hit, ‘Best Day of My Life’ — because how else would you describe a moment where you seen everything you’ve accomplished and worked so hard for? The playlist then continues with some classic favorites — like the Beach Boys’ ‘Graduation Day’ and the Rembrandts’ ‘Friends’ theme song, ‘I’ll Be There For You’ — while also playing some more modern tracks, like Katy Perry’s anthem ‘Firework’ and Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Unwritten.’

Of course, the playlist includes a mix of inspirational, happy tunes (like Queen’s ‘We Are the Champions’ and R. Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’), but also bittersweet songs like Eve 6’s ‘Here’s to the Night’ and Green Day’s ‘Good Riddance.’ But that’s exactly what graduation is: a combination of both elation and a twinge of sadness, and this mix covers all of the emotions. Listen to it below!
