Need a Goodbye Song

I'm president of our school's sketch comedy club and my last job is to make a montage video of the year and overlay it with a song.

I want to find a song that is upbeat and has lyrics that talk about moving on and remembering the good times and all.

Last year we used "Something New" by Axwell:



Any ideas for a song this year?

    For some reason this came to mind. It probably doesn't apply but it's the best video.

    "You don't know" by Reel Big Fish :3

    When I was a youth, it was federally mandated that all videos of this sort use "The Time of Your Life" by Green Day. You could use it ironically.

    Time of Your Life and Madonna's "Remember" were required for every event.

    I'd go with something by Frank Turner myself.

    Pretty much any song people play at high school graduation ceremonies.

    I'd say "Graduation" (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C but I'm evil like that.

    Goodman it, knitdan. I'd finally gotten it out of my head after graduating like fifty years ago.

    What is this I don't even.

    We used this for one of ours, altho, I don't know if would have the same impact in the states as it does in Canada, uplifting chorus's tho.

    The way it straight up lifts "Canon in D" means bits of it will be stuck in my head forever.

    Also the fact that my brother's class used it in a loop for their 20 minute graduation video.

    For some reason I can only think of Muppets songs.
    "Saying Goodbye" or "I'm Going To Go Back There Someday".
    Probably not upbeat enough though.

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    All good options. We think we may avoid picking a song that has the "goodbye" lyrics and maybe go with something upbeat (starting and ending a little slower and fast in the middle).

    Any thoughts?

    Tom Waits - I'll be gone, and Alkaline Trio- Goodbye Forever are two that come to mind.

    FYI the actual title of this song is Good Riddance (Time of your life) which is a source of considerable amusement as it rather informs how the lyrics should be interpreted. It is already used ironically but unintentionally so.

    Haha, they used that song back in my graduation back in the day. The song was kinda new at the time (2000), and they played it during the end of the graduation itself. Really got pretty much all the graduates crying XD . I have never seen that many kids cry at a graduation ever since.

    One of the songs they ALMOST used at our graduation was "Here's To The Night" by Eve 6. The graduating class voted on which songs they want to use while a panel of teachers had veto power. The Eve 6 song made it all the way to the final round of voting before someone finally pointed out to a teacher that it's about a one night stand. Then it got vetoed.

    These damn tattle-tale kids, am I right?

    Especially not fair since the class that graduated before us were allowed to use "Another Brick In the Wall" as their graduation song (yes, seriously). I mean COME ON.

    *edit*

    As a child of the early 90s whose parents forced him to go to church, I demand that you use "Friends Are Friends Forever" by Michael W Smith. It's sort of like the graduation song for youth groups of the early 90s. But also for funerals.
