I'ver never been good with music and this DVD has put me to the test and will take any and all suggestions. This is what I have so far, but I'm not 100% committed to anything.

The sections of the DVD that I want to include are:

School pictures over the years and was thinking of doing the song 2012, but I may strictly use the song for graduation day pictures and then need another song for all the school pictures.

Family pictures - we are family

Pictures with her sisters - We go together (Grease)

Dancing pictures (she's danced for 15 years) - I hope you dance.

Section with DD and Step-father (my husband who has been in her life since she was two) - Because you loved me

My section with DD - My wish (but I'm not loving this song - I think there is something I can do better)

She's been a field hockey player x 4 years - no music so far for this song

Something for her and her friends.

Any suggestions?:surfweb:

Your Smiling Face by James Taylor
Rhythm of Love by Plain White T's

I am doing this for DD's graduation too. I used "Child of Mine" by Carole King for her baby to growing up pictures.

Although you see the world different than me
Sometimes I can touch upon the wonders that you see
All the new colors and pictures you've designed
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

You don't need direction, you know which way to go
And I don't want to hold you back, I just want to watch you grow
You're the one who taught me you don't have to look behind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody's gonna kill your dreams
Or tell you how to live your life
There'll always be people to make it hard for a while
But you'll change their heads when they see you smile

The times you were born in may not have been the best
But you can make the times to come better than the rest
I know you will be honest if you can't always be kind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine,
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine





I am also getting pictures from family, friends, and people that have made an impact in her life and putting them to Rascal Flatts' "My Wish".

Good Life

Aaagghhh! Just reading the title makes me think of the Disneyland commercials that make me cry like a big baby. :hug: It's the voiceover that reminds you that "there are only so many..."

The crying aside I will for sure be using that song in DS Grad video.

Your dance song is great, but have you heard the song Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman? It is the one my dancing daughter picked for her grad DVD. I'm going to go watch her video now...sniff! She's been gone for 2 years and now I have to send off the next daughter.

For her video, I was thinking of using this one (it is Christian oriented)

Find Your Wings

It was only for a moment you were mine to hold.
The plans that Heaven has for you will all too soon unfold.
So many different prayers I'll pray for all that you might do.
But most of all,

I'll wanna know you're walking in the truth.
And if I never told you,
I want you to know that as I watch you grow:

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things.
I'm here for you whatever this life brings,
So let my love give you roots and help you find your wings.

May passion be the wind that leads you through your days.
And may conviction keep you strong,
Guide you on your way.
May there be many moments that make your life so sweet.
Oh.
But more than memories.

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things.
I'm here for you whatever this life brings,
So let my love give you roots and help you find your wings.

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky.
I'll have tears as you take off,
But I'll cheer as you fly.

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things.
I'm here for you whatever this life brings,
So let my love give you roots and help you find your wings.

My two favorite graduation songs are the Graduation Song by Vitamin C and Unwritten by Natasha Bedenfield.

I agree, I really like this song.

My school's graduation song for our class was "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan. The year before that it was the Green Day song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)". I think both are still great for a graduation message.

I like "In my Life" by the Beatles

I know you have "I hope you dance" for the dance section but I went to a wedding and the bride danced with her Mom to that song. Now everytime I listen to the words I think of it differently. So maybe you can move it to your pictures with her?

I love Martina Mcbride "In my daughters eyes"

In my daughter's eyes,
I am a hero,
I am strong and wise,
And I know no fear,
But the truth is plain to see,
She was sent to rescue me,
I see who I want to be,
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes,
Everyone is equal,
Darkness turns to light,
And the world is at peace,
This miracle god gave to me,
Gives me strength when I am weak,
I find reason to believe,
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand around my finger,
How it puts a smile in my heart,
Everything becomes a little clearer,
I realize what life is all about,
It's hanging on when your heart is had enough,
It's giving more when you feel like giving up,
I've seen the light,
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes,
I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she'll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family,
When i'm gone I hope you see,
How happy she made me,
For i'll be there,
In my daughter's eyes


For my son's football team last season we used Taylor Swift "Long Live"

Little wonders by Rob Thomas from Meet The Robinsons

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsT2URr1Igc

Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
You will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours
These small hours
Still remain

Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine,
Till you feel it all around you
And I don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours
Still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away somehow
But I cannot forget
the way I feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Yeah, these twisted turns of fate
Time falls away
Yeah, but these small hours,
These small hours
Still remain

Yeah, oh they still remain
These little wonders
All these twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders
Still remain

Im limited-Wicked

(Elphaba):
Im limited
Just look at me - Im limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda
So now it's up to you
For both of us - now it's up to you...

(Glinda):
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made from what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/for-good-lyrics-wicked.html ]
But because I knew you

(Glinda):
Because I knew you

(Both):
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

(Glinda):
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

(Both):
And none of it seems to matter anymore

(Glinda):
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

(Elphaba):
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood

(Both):
Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

(Glinda):
And because I knew you...

(Elphaba):
Because I knew you...

(Both):
Because I knew you...
I have been changed for good...

Another turning point a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

[Chorus]
It's something unpredictable but in the end
It's right I hope you've had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

I am IN LOVE with this song! If it were my daughter graduating, this would be the song...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bq5DDHC8wug :love:

There's a little flame inside us all
Some shine bright
Some shine small
The rains will come
And the waters rise
But don't you ever lose your light

In this life you will know
Love and pain
Joy and sorrow
So when it hurts
When times get hard
Don't forget who's child you are

This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I'm Gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine

May you live each day
With no regret
Make the most of every chance you get
And your eyes get wide
When you look at the stars
With the same sense of wonder as a child's heart

With the ones you love
Treasure the time
And for those who are gone
Keep the memories alive

Hold on to your dreams
Don't ever let go
There's a fire inside you
Burning with hope

chorus

There will be days when you wanna give up
When clouds settle in
But after the rain comes the sun
Don't you ever forget
Don't forget
Don't, don't forget

One day there will be no more pain
And we will finally see Jesus' face
So until then I'm gonna try
To brave the dark
And let my little light shine

chorus x2

Oh, shine
Gonna let it shine
There's a little light inside us all :hug:

I used Alphaville's "Forever Young" on the video I did for our son a few years ago........brings out the tears every time we watch it. Plan to use it again along with the newer Jay-Z version "Young Forever" in a couple of years for our younger son.

My younger DD graduates next year and I know one of the songs I will be using is My Wish by Rascal Flatts. But we are huge Flatts Fans :cool2: I figure I will use this for the pics at the end. the ones taken most recently ....
I am also considering using Let Them be Little by Lone Star (I think?) for her baby and very young pics.
The way I procrastinate, I should probably start this project this summer!! :rolleyes1

Love this thread!

DH makes a DVD for our youngest each year so we go through this each year. Here are a few that I really like:

Heaven by Live

(I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I sit with them all night
everything they say is right
but in the morning they were wrong
I'll be right by your side
come hell or water high
down any road you choose to roam)

You'll Be in My Heart by Phil Collins

(seriously can not make it through this song without tears)

You're So Beautiful by Joe Cocker

These are the Days by 10,000 Maniacs

Beautiful Day by U2

Sister by Dave Matthews

(Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, keep me

I hope you always know itís true
I would never make it through
You could make the sun go DARK
Just by walking away

Playing like we used to play
Like it would never go away
I feel you beating in my chest) DD20 always hugs DS22 when she hears it

Landslide by Dixie Chicks (actually Stevie Nicks first)

(Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I'm getting older too)

I like to Move It- Madagascar, by Mad Stuntman

Learn to Fly- Foo Fighters

It is hard to find the right mix of sentimental yet you don't want everyone crying :thumbsup2

And there is a good chance that you will watch it many many more times over the next few years! I have 2 in college and while I am thrilled they are well adjusted adults, I still miss them so much!!

I always make an end of year video for my first graders, and I use Miley Cyrus "The Climb." I think it would be great for the school photo section!

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going


And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody's gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

I can't find the actual recording of "Life is a Highway" that I like on youtube except for the Wolff's Disney video;) This is the version I am using.

For the "friends" section, there's a Tom Chapin (brother of Harry) song that I used for a preschool video -- from his CD Billy the Squid, called "All of My Friends." www.tomchapin.com. The lyrics say something like "friends I've known since I was 3." If you don't know Tom Chapin, his kids' music is EXCELLENT.

I found it on a youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAyqqVJLSE8. You can capture the music by using listentoyoutube.com.

I'ver never been good with music and this DVD has put me to the test and will take any and all suggestions. This is what I have so far, but I'm not 100% committed to anything.

The sections of the DVD that I want to include are:

School pictures over the years and was thinking of doing the song 2012, but I may strictly use the song for graduation day pictures and then need another song for all the school pictures.

Family pictures - we are family

Pictures with her sisters - We go together (Grease)

Dancing pictures (she's danced for 15 years) - I hope you dance.

Section with DD and Step-father (my husband who has been in her life since she was two) - Because you loved me

My section with DD - My wish (but I'm not loving this song - I think there is something I can do better)

She's been a field hockey player x 4 years - no music so far for this song

Something for her and her friends.

Any suggestions?:surfweb:

King of the World by Point of Grace is an amazing daddy and daughter song for a dancer.

What website or software is everyone using to make the videos. I've used Animoto in the past but I don't think it let's you use multiple songs.

I'm using Windows Live Movie Maker. It was on my computer when I bought it.

Thought of a perfect one--"My Little Girl" Tim McGraw from Flicka movie


Verse 1:
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you, though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.

Chorus:
Beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.

Verse 2:
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I've turned around and you've almost grown.
Sometimes you're asleep I whisper "I Love You!" in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, "Daddy Love You More!".

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won't say "yes" to him unless I know, he's the half
that makes you whole, he has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man.
I know he'll say that he's in love.
But between you and me. He won't be good enough!

(Repeat Chorus)

I was originally going to use a Celine Dion song (Because you loved me) for my husband and my daughter, who is her step-father, who has been there for her more than her father, but my husband let me know he doesn't like Celine Dion, but I thought the words were great, now I need song suggestions.

For myself I was planning on using My Wish - I guess I could combine both, but I really wanted to do two separate songs.

I'm almost finished with the project for DD. I'm still using Child of Mine by Carole King but decided to use Good Life by One Republic for our vacation pics.

I'm also using We are Family by Sister Sledge for pictures of all our extended family. And You've Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story for pictures of family friends.

I'm using Windows Movie Maker. I had started using Kizoa but it was an upgrade to string the songs together.

My DS is going to jr high next year and the current 6th graders made a video to "We Are Young" by Fun. I love that song.

I saw it mentioned shortly before, yes it seems that Green Day's "Good Riddance" was standard fare back in the day, still a good song. Gotta be sure to have the radio edit version, or at least edit the very first part.
