Is there another song except something about “Old Slang Sign” that rings in the New Year?

It being a Scottish song, how about a bagpipe version?

Auld Lang Syne – Bagpipes

And if you need to brush up on the lyrics (who really cares after more than a few?) Here they are

Nancy Wilson – What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve

Have fun, but I hope that you are not in this video next year.

What are your New Years songs,  and your wishes?

I wish every one good health and a prosperous New Year and thanks to all for making everyday a day of learning on The Planet.

    The only reason that I picked that Stevie Wonder song was because it starts with --
    No New Years Day
    To celebrate

    That’s it!

    Did anyone else go through the turmoil and depression of not having a date and going out for New Year’s Eve when you were young?

    Did anyone else ever accept a date with a person that you’d never ever go out with but they asked you out for New Years Eve and you did that?

    Including the gross out Happy New Year kiss?

    Yeah, me neither!


    And now, does anyone else think that it’s great to be snuggled up at home and not going anywhere?

    ELO -- Strange Magic

    Chinese New Year Song --

    Chinese Version
    Zhengyue chu-yi guo xin nian
    Dajia tonglai guo xin nian

    Da jia qu bai nian
    Qi ba long dong qiang dong qiang
    Da jia qu bai nian.

    English Translation
    The first of January is New Year
    All of us enjoy the New Year
    Everyone is happy when New Year comes
    Visiting friends, wishing everyone the best,
    Lighting firecrackers everywhere,
    We are enjoying the New Year.

    I hope this is the correct youtube for this song --

    Rosh Hashanah Song --

    Rosh Hashanah Song
    (Jewish meaning Shana Tova)
    Shana hal’cha shana ba’ah
    Ani kappai arima
    Shana tova lecha abba

    Shana tova, shana tova.

    English Translation
    One year has passed,
    A new year is coming.
    I will raise my hands
    And bid a Happy New Year
    To mother and father.

      Happy, Happy, j’avaz. Knowing I’ll not make it to midnight anyway, I just made a coffee and Irish Cream. Hmmmm, nice on a cold day.

        Sheesh, insanity runs in my family, and I succumbed for a bit -- true story -- but am fine now and doing what I have to do -- trust me -- you’ve never met a crazy person until me!
