My son passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review. He is officially an Eagle Scout! YYAAAAAAYYYY!!
His troop is doing the awards ceremony (officially called a Court of Honor) in December. There will be 2 or 3 other boys (depending if one boy gets his stuff together in time) getting their Eagle ranks at the same ceremony.
At Eagle ceremonies, our troop always puts together a slideshoe/montage of pictures from throughout the boys' years in Scouting, going back to 1st or 2nd grade and Tiger & Cub Scouts; along with a few pictures from their lives outside Scouts.
The troop asked me for some of my son's favorite songs to use along with these pictures. Well, my son's taste runs towards classic rock (Aerosmith, Zepplin, Stones), a bit of alt rock and some jazz. I was only able to come up with two songs:
Good Riddance/Time of Your Life - Green Day
Times Like These (acoustic version) - Foo Fighters
My husband also suggested "I Believe I Can Fly" from Space Jam.
Berurah and others had a great discussion on lyrics going on the Parent Cafe. Can anyone suggest more songs that might be appropriate for this montage that won't make my son gag? Not too loud/rock/guitarish (the grandparents in attendance factor), and not too sappy (the teenage boy factor).
