Do What You Love

My mom just called and told me that Brian Williams had a great segment on graduation speeches tonight called Pomp and Circumstance that featured among others, Billy Joel.

I see that I can watch NBC Nightly News online after 10 PM Eastern.

I found the quote over here, 'Doctor' Billy Joel gives song - no dance-to Syracuse U. grads:
"Billy Joel got a standing ovation from nearly 5,000 Syracuse University graduates Sunday after he serenaded them and urged them to do what they love in life.

'Don't do it for security or status, prestige, money, or, for crying out loud, don't do it for somebody else,' he said. 'Do it for love. Because if you love what you do, you'll always do what you love.'"
As mentioned, because of music licensing restrictions, we can't offer you streaming video of tonight's closing piece about the Class of 2006. So here's the next best thing -- the soundtrack -- listed in order in which the songs were used. Thanks to producer Kelly Venardos for sharing.

I left a comment.

How about showing me the piece without music?

    I was searching the "blogosphere" for the nbc news pomp and circumstance and found your blog...I completely agree that its unfair we can't see the clip...I wanted to see what schools were featured, expecially since I missed commencement at my own college this year.
