College of Charleston - Graduation Closing Music

On Saturday morning, as the 2 hour College of Charleston graduation ceremony concluded, the college president stated that the graduates were facing "the toughest job market in years" and while colleges around the country would be playing 18th century music as the recessional music, they wanted to play something more inspiring and unique here instead.
First they played The Charleston. Okay, corny... but humourous.
Then, they played some happy happy Diane Ross-esque song "I'm comin up" lyrical refrain.
But as the graduates were 1/2 way done filing off the stage, they played Iron Butterfly's In A Gadda Da Vida - LMAO! It was strange.

A hot, humid, sultry Charleston morning. It was very nice to get the whole grandparent gathering behind us. 3 days on the beach were nice as well. Back to Phoenix this afternoon.
