These Are the Best Songs for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah Montage

Recently, a Kveller reader asked us about what songs would be great to include in a bar/bat mitzvah montage. As music-lovers here, we immediately went to task–and asked our readers to tell us their favorite songs to be played alongside embarrassing childhood photos during this quintessential bar/bat mitzvah tradition.

This is what they said:

“‘Home’ by Philip Phillips, ‘Best Day of My Life’ by Americas Authors, and ‘Good Life’ by One Republic.”
-LH

“‘Slipping Through My Fingers’ by Abba and ‘Never Grow Up’ by Taylor Swift.”
-PN

“Green Day’s ‘Time Of Your Life.'”
-AS

“‘In my Life’ by the Beatles.”
-AG

“Rod Stewart’s ‘Forever Young.'”
-DK

“‘Beautiful Boy’ by John Lennon.”
-SH

“‘Smile’ by Uncle Kracker”
-KK

“‘I Believe I Can Fly’ by R.Kelly.”
-NR

“Barbra Streisand.”
-IG

“John Mayer’s ‘Daughters’ and Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Little Miss Magic.'”
-DF

My personal pick? The Cinematic Orchestra’s “To Build a Home.”
