It’s almost the New Year, and that means you’re probably looking for a couple songs to add to the old playlist to spice up the holiday celebrations. I’ve got a couple of lesser known songs that should help you do just that. Are some of them a little bizarre? Yes, but that’s the point!
There is a surprising lack of good New Year’s songs… but then again, when you’ve got the old classic, Auld Lang Syne, it’s not a shocker no one is gunning to replace it. Not going to happen.
Dropkick Murphy‘s… excellent cover.
Zager and Evans – In The Year 2525
Futurama‘s spoof on that song is equally amazing:
Eagles – Funky New Year
David Byrne‘s In The Future is as dystopian as it gets. But that glorious music is just too good!
When will someone use this song, remix it, and then rap over it? Needs to happen.
Tokyo Police Club – Citizens of Tomorrow
Queen – ’39
This song is actually about the future!
Timbuk 3 – The Future’s So Bright
