I love alternative playlists...and today, the first day of a new year, inspired me to reach into my music library for songs that reference the new year. Let's rock in the new year with good music!
However, are there actually (good) appropriate songs for this time of year OTHER than Auld Lang Syne and New Years Day by U2??
Songs for New Years Eve
Nail it Down - The Drones
Bird in a Basement - Paul Dempsey
New Year's Eve - The Walkmen
Songs for New Year's Day
The New Year - Death Cab For Cutie
New Year's Prayer - Jeff Buckley
In The New Year - The Walkmen
New Year's Song - Josh Pyke
Planet New Year - Sarah Blasko
My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year) - Regina Spektor
New Year - Breeders
The Getaway Plan - The New Year
Grace Cathedral Hill - The Decemberists
What A Year For A New Year - Dan Wilson
Wrecking Ball - Interpol
Any other suggestions? I'd love to hear them!
Happy new year!
