I think it is a great song for graduations and/or weddings.Why does it matter what it was written about?Shouldn't it be about how the song makes the people listening to it feel?
it can go both ways, smarty. (like the song big balls by acdc.) how can you say for sure thats what they meant it to be about?
Good Riddance or time of you life by green day is not a good wedding song!!! at all!! It's about breaking up on good terms...
Not a good song to play...
I agree with smarty. This song is the last one you'd wanna play at a wedding although it's still a good song. "I hope you had the time of your life" is a sarcastic line making the song the opposite of what you;d want at a wedding
I used this as a funeral song.
you're kidding me!?
This is NOT a wedding song! It is definitely a song about breaking up.
This is defintely a break up song.
Anyhoww....i LUV itt!!!
I guess both Smarty and Heather r right...but whichever way you look at it, its gr8!
Hey can u guys tell me the names of some similar songs..i like such slow,movin ones! :D
Not a good choice
This song was used on ER. It was the favorite song of a little kid who was dying of cancer and he wanted it played at his funeral.
This song makes me think of endings, not beginnings.
It's not supposed to be literal...
...that much is true. Yes, it could be about a breakup, or it may be simply about change. I think that it is subjective and if someone wants to use it in their wedding for their own reasons it should be used and it is pretty appropriate for a graduation.
smarter than smarty...
This song is the best to use as a graduation especially in a slideshow or movie of photos
Do you people.....
...even realize what this song is about?!??!!
This is an IRONIC song! It's about a BREAKUP, for god's sakes!!!
The song is saying, "now that you've broken my heart, I'm finally realizing that it's for the best....and I hope you had the time of your life while you were with me."
It is NOT wedding (or graduation) appropriate!!!
I'm with my girlfriend now and i think that this a great song to hear when you are like trying to show your feelings... I think...
it was a good song
i love that song
i luv dis song .. evn though green dayh is a rock band dis song rockzz
the song is so sweet. i might play it on the last day of high school, which for me is on may the 15th. it'll remind me of all the good times i had in high school with my friends, who i may never see again.
you HAVE to have a green day song at your wedding, they're the greatest. however, i would choose something like "boulevard of broken dreams" or "whatsername" as they are more slower and melodic
My soon to be husbands brother died in a car accident and we played this at the funeral. So we are going to play it at the wedding like a memorial
this was my graduation song and i love it
I think this song is good for a wedding but we also might use it for graduation
