If you really want to give a memorable commencement speech, singing it might be the way to go.
At Landmark College in Putney, Vt., each graduate speaks for two minutes. When Aaron Pickover, originally from Southfield, Mich., got to the microphone he chose to sing to the audience.
After accepting his associate's degree, he launched into a two-minute song and received a standing ovation at the end.
Watch the video above to hear the whole tune.
CORRECTION: A previous headline for this article stated that Pickover's song was to his parents; this is incorrect, but we're sure he was, in a way, thanking them as well.
