Retirement Party Song Suggestions


Reaction score
Any suggestions for music to accompany a retirement tribute DVD photo slideshow? Have any of you been to a retirement party and heard a song that is fitting and suitable for a mixed crowd? Thanks in advance...
I had to make a retirement movie for a teacher, and I used:

Old Friends/Bookends - Simon and Garfunkel
For some reason "Sister Christian" always makes it into those types of things.. but I think that's more graduation-related. Even if the song has nothing to do with graduations.
Louis Armstrong's "It's a Wonderful World" if you're feeling sentimental.

Alice Cooper's "Schools Out Forever" if you're not.
"In My Life" The Beatles
"Take this Job and Shove it" (artist escapes me at the moment)
A good song for a well admired person if you want to be sentimental about it might be Unforgettable

What about 'Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)' by Green Day?
that's an good choice despite the title "good riddance"
