Auld Lang Syne
There is no escaping "Auld Lang Syne" this time of year. It was composed by a Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns in 1788, which roughly translates to "times gone by." You can also substitute it for the Mariah Carey version if you want a Christmas-y feeling.
New Year's Resolution
This song is a great pick for anyone trying to be better next year. Recorded with Stax’s famous house band, you can't go wrong with Otis Redding and Carla Thomas.
New Year's Day
When people think of the song New Year's Day, U2's 1983 original version always comes up first. This was released as the lead single from the album "War". And it becomes a classic to be rolled out at the end of the year simply because of its festive name. Try Taylor Swift's New Year's Day to get the quiet hope you want to get to feel on January 1ST, 2021.
Funky New Year
Funky New Year is a fun track. This song is recorded way back in 1979 by the legendary rock group the Eagles and was only released as a B-side. Liven up the party for your loved one this year with this song.
Raise Your Glass
This song was produced by Swedish hitmaker Max Martin and co-written by Pink. It's a pop-rock party anthem for anyone who ever wanted to celebrate.
