New Year – 2012

Happy New Year guys!

Damn, another year come and gone. Seems to me like they just keep flyin’ by – one faster than the other. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your 2011 as I did mine. Let us look forward to another fun-filled year, eh?

As in the words of Oprah Winfrey, ‘Cheers to a New Year, and another chance for us to get it right.’

Before leaving however, why don’t we take a look at some classic new year’s songs?

Here’s my top 3 – feel free to leave a comment and tell us what yours is!

1. New Year’s Day – U2

This just brings back memories. My first and favourite U2 song, released on January 1 as lead single of their album War. 

2. The New Year – Death Cab For Cutie

‘So this is the new year…’ The opening track to Death Cab For Cutie’s album Transatlanticism. Fun, catchy, and light – an altogether enjoyable song.

3. Funky New Year

The title says it all, really. Released as the B-Side to their cover of the Charles Brown song ‘Please Come Home For Christmas’.

Well, that’s pretty much all I have for now. With that much said, let us welcome our new year and let us hope it goes as we plan it to go (or at the very least close enough!).

Cheers to 2012!

    Fun look at covers – thanks for pulling these great ones together. I wasn’t grabbed by the cover of Use Somebody by Laura Jansen. I find it more convincing when sung by C Followill – maybe because it’s more compelling to hear a guy wrenched by loneliness?

    I’m looking forward to following your tales in music! Thank you for being the first person to “like” my blog (or one particular post, I guess.) It’s a new thing for me too.

      Yes, you are quite right.. The tone is much different when sung by Followill. Jansen makes it seem more ‘happy’. And the point about a guy wrenched by loneliness isn’t too far off i guess.

      Thank you, I’m glad you enjoy the posts enough to follow them! And no problem for liking your post! Yes, ‘blogs’ would be something new for both of us.. Maybe we’ll both learn through eachother’s posts!
