What song is more appropriate for a college graduation ceremony?

I am a beginner at playing the piano. I would like to play a song because the ceremonies in my college are boring. The average age is like 26. I know these 2 songs:

-Comptine d'un autre été from Yann Tiersen (movie Amelie).

-Goodbye (Hachiko movie)

I would only need to practice so as I don't make any mistakes.

Which one would you recommend and why? Thank you.

    You are not good enough to play to a captive audience. People will be annoyed by you and embarrassed for you - I know I would be. Kids can get away with playing badly in public, but adults should know better than to play to strangers who haven't come with the expectation of what they're going to hear. You might think you're playing it with no mistakes, but you have an extremely subjective viewpoint - I guarantee you, you're making all sorts of mistakes that you don't even understand ARE mistakes because you're not experienced enough.

    Lose your ego. People do not want to hear you play. Maybe when you're better.

    Neither. Hire a competent pianist - they are everywhere.
