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!
I Hope You Dance - Lee Ann Womack

"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed".
