It is New Year’s Eve. It is time to party, but sometimes that can be hard to do when the music is all so terrible! I humbly submit to you my own personal playlist. Justin’z Greatest Holiday Jamz of All Time are guaranteed to jump start any holiday shindig.
Merry Christmas Darling – Carpenters
Blow the roof off of the gingerbread house with the rollicking, effervescent pop of Richard and Karen Carpenter. Oh, and you know who else just so happens to be a Carpenter? Trick question! The Carpenters were a vocal duo.
Eternal Flame – The Bangles
For the Hanukkah crowd.
River – Joni Mitchell
What would the winter holidays be without fun outdoor activities like ice skating?
Same Old Lang Syne – Dan Fogelberg
New Year’s is a great time to catch up with old friends and to wistfully internalize a lifetime of regret. 2015 is going to be great!
Brick – Ben Folds Five
Going out the day after Christmas to return an unwanted gift? Haha, yeah, I think we’ve all been there.
Fancy – Reba McEntire
This tale of a young girl and her red velvet Christmas dress is sure to be the evening’s emotional high point. You’ll have to dance just to keep from crying.
Building a Mystery – Sarah McLachlan
You wear sandals in the snow and a smile that won’t wash away? Must be from California!
The Final Countdown – Europe
If you time it just right this syncs up perfectly with the ball drop on New Year’s Rocking Eve.
Happy New Year from all of me here at Beyond the Valley of the Daals!
