Random thoughts on art, technology, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate: Friday Classics: Ring In The New Year

Friday Classics: Ring In The New Year

"Auld Lang Syne,"  is traditionally sung at the stroke of midnight in almost every English-speaking country in the world to bring in the new year.

Here's a little of the song's history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auld_Lang_Syne

And the complete lyrcis along with a translation into modern day english: http://www.newyearfavors.com/new-years-eve-song.html

While browsing YouTube, I fell in love with this version of Auld Lang Syne played as a background to scenes from the 1940 movie Waterloo Bridge.

Ardell -- OK, I'll give that a try.  Gimme a day or two.  :-)

Awww Charlie -- You're just not in that sentimental, cry-at-a-sad-old-movie, good-bye-to-the-old-year mood yet.  :-)
