New Year Songs

OK Go | This Will Be Our Year
OK Go’s cover version of this old Zombies song is as zingy and zippy as a Rube Goldberg machine.

Regina Spektor | My Dear Acquaintance [A Happy New Year]
With its retrofied sound and simple, pretty, piano-graced melody, this is an instant indie classic.

U2 | New Year’s Day
Serious subject matter transformed into a message-song that’s jubilant and arena-ready.

Harry Connick | What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?
Sinatra for the modern age, Connick’s take on this standard is an appealing and authentic one.

Rufus Wainwright | What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve
Pseudo-Sinatra not quite your style?  Get modern with Wainwright’s piano-based version.

Death Cab for Cutie | The New Year
A new year’s track for you emo kids, with nifty lyrics on the end about map-folding as a means of transit.

The Go Find | The New Year
Danceable electro-pop peppy enough to make your shoes go dancing without you. Just sayin’.

Graham Colton | New Years Resolution
This under-the-radar singer-songwriter croons you a heartfelt new year’s breakup song.

Thievery Corporation | Resolution
Since this is an instrumental, there’ll be no bossy electronica band telling you what to do this year, thank you very much.

The Kinks | Better Things
Actual good-fortune-to-you wishes from the archetypal English Mod rockers themselves.

The Beach Boys | Auld Lang Syne
Hey, it’s supposed to sound old-school!  Be grateful we didn’t pick the Mariah Carey version.

R.E.M. | It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Given that 2012 is being largely hyped as the year of Doom, who better to sing us out than R.E.M.?
