"Graduation (Friends Forever)" is a single by American pop singer Vitamin C.
The song reached tremendous success at all kinds of graduation parties and events, notably for those related to middle and high schools, and it remains very popular for that occasion; around summer, the song gets heavy airplay on Radio Disney
. It has appeared on the iTunes Music Chart
at the end of every school year since the chart's inception. A remake was recorded by teen pop group, The Truth Squad
The single reached #12 on the Top 40 Mainstream, #23 on the Rhythmic Top 40 and #38 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her second and final single to reach the Top 40. It also reached #2 in the Australian ARIA Charts.
The song was featured in Scary Movie 2 when Cindy is driving while singing along rather badly. Suddenly the music stops, and Vitamin C says, "Hey! Will you shut the f*** up and let me sing?"
The opening lyrics of "Graduation (Friends Forever)" allude to "All the Young Dudes" by David Bowie.
The song is heavily based on Pachelbel's Canon in D, transposed to the key of C major.
