[tps_title]3. “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack[/tps_title]
This is another one that’s big for the parents of the graduate. It’s their send-off song. It’s also sappy and an overused metaphor. Like take that chance, get up and dance, blah blah blah. Mom and Dads, your intentions are good, but this song came out in 2000 and it’s time for something new.
Want a song with some solid and funny mom and dad advice, that is less embarrassing and cheesy?
Replace with: “Learn to Live With What You Are” by Ben Folds
“But I just love you for the things you couldn’t change, though you’ve tried.”
