Originally performed by Bill Withers, this video is a Glee cast cover.
While not specifically a farewell ballad, the following phrases make this lovely song perfect for a farewell:
"If there is a load that you have to bear,
That you can't carry,
I'm right up the road,
I'll share your load,
If you just call me..."
School's Out - Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper's classic hard rock/heavy metal end-of-school anthem was his answer to the question, "What's the greatest three minutes of your life?".
His reply? "The last three minutes of the last day of school when you're sitting there and it's like a slow fuse burning...If we can catch that three minutes in a song, it's going to be so big."
The song has been used so many times in movies, tv shows and commercials, with numerous different versions, that we can safely say that those three minutes were successfully captured!
