Music Monday | New Years

Wising you a Happy New Years! Tonight, we’re ringing it in from our couch with the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. Here are five songs to ring in the New Year. See you in 2013!

______

Stream: Folk Angel – “Auld Lang Syne” (Live) Cheers to trying to sing this at midnight after all that champagne. But for now, enjoy it sober, and realized how beautiful this song is. And download Folk Angel‘s versions for free here.

Stream: Carla Thomas & Otis Redding – “New Years Resolution” Let’s make promises that we can’t keep, and call it a New Years resolution. Get this baby on iTunes.

Stream: DJ Earworm – “United State of Pop 2012 (Shine Brighter)”  I look forward to DJ Earworm‘s Pop mashups every year. For me, I don’t think 2009‘s can be topped, with 2008‘s as my second favorite. I’m pretty happy with this one, too. Download it for free here…then turn those speakers up.

Stream: Death Cab For Cutie – “The New Year” Because every good New Years playlist has to have this song on it. This is dedicated to any other former emo kids whose away messages on AIM on January 1st always said “So this is the New Year…and I don’t feel any different.” For the record, Transatlanticism is still one of my all time favorite albums. Get this on iTunes if you don’t have it.

    1. I love you two clowns. Happy New Year

    2. Love that description of Death Cab’s “New Year”…so accurate, ha! Happy New Year to you both!

    3. funnnn blog. just found you randomly on instagram. I’m [also] a wedding photographer and just moved to Atlanta from Portland OR. I’m slowly trying to find some awesome photographers in the south to network with, and I’m so glad I stumbled upon your work. I love your stuff.

      love love love this blog too. such a cool concept, and I’ve enjoyed looking through the posts. my eye stopped on this particular page because I saw something about the Dirty Guv’nahs…I saw them in a really small concert about 5 years ago in Knoxville, TN (first time I had heard of them) and got hooked…buuuuut then kind of forgot about them until now which just so happens to conveniently be at a time where I NEED NEW MUSIC! AHHH!

      Anyway, so thanks for that. and sorry to hijack this post with the longest.comment.ever. It’s late. I’m tired. I’m not even sure I’m making any sense.

      So yeah…maybe our paths will cross one day? I love networking with talented people. If you like coffee, maybe we could share some conversation over a nice hot cup o’ joe. Hit me up if you’re interested :-)
