yesterday someone on tv noted that while there may be thousands of christmas songs, there are hardly any songs that celebrate the new year. i totally agree. i mean, obviously there's abba's happy new year.. but other than that? u2's new year's day, you would think, but i don't believe there's much celebration in there. please let me know if you can think of any other ones..

last night we stayed up until 2:30 or there abouts, i think. it was a relatively calm & peaceful start of the new year. of course there were fireworks, but it never got as loud as in previous years. in #lj_support it also stayed awfully quiet. understandably, people are away from their computer most of the time, but i had expected just a little more talk in there.

luckily i'm not ill like apparently many others are or have been. the only problem is that i'm ooohh sooooooo tired. & while for most people the festivities are over now for quite some time, i have only a few days before my birthday..

hugs & kisses to you all & have a beautiful new year!

Bobby Darin did a combo song called "Christmas Auld Lang Syne" but eh. Even that isn't really what you want.

Seems like there could be and probably should be some song that celebrates the new year.

Best wishes for a great one Tamar!

Can't think of any other pop or rock song about new year, maybe in folk song tradition of some countries but that probably is not what you want. Happy New Year Tamar!

Nancy Wilson singing "What Are You Doing New Year's?" is my favorite, it's very Great American Songbook-y, and she has a lovely understated delivery that makes it feel timeless. Very sweet song. And happy new year to you!

That's an ABBA song I haven't heard. At least I don't think so.

Hopefully they were away from their computer living it up a bit. :)

Happy Birthday if I don't see you before then!
