Another New Years Eve Is On It's Way - 6 Songs for New Years Eve

Thursday, December 29, 2011
Sunset Crescent MoonA good New Years Eve song should be equal parts melancholy and hope. Robert Burn's poem-cum-New Years Eve standard is about as melancholy as it gets, but what would you expect from a Scotsman?
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
 New Years has long been good subject for songs both sad and hopeful. For my part, New Years is a special night, as it serves as an anniversary for my dear wife and myself. I get melancholy however, especially if your New Years is just another night.

Todays Pick Six are songs both hopeful and sad for your New Years Eve. Enjoy.
