Do you have a favorite version of Auld Lang Syne you would like to share?
Here in Boystown, the bars play very upbeat, high-energy renditions that are mixed by in-house VJs. I’m trying to find examples of the best ones, but these VJs are very protective of their mixes and never put them on YouTube (which I think is very stupid, actually, because they could turn these clips into self-promotion engines, for themselves and for their bars, considering all the free advertising those clips would generate).
Do you have any specific “Auld Lang Synes” that you ALWAYS listen to every New Year?
What are your New Year’s Eve plans and do you have any special foods or activities you do on New Year’s Day you could share with us?
It seems to be a tradition here in the Midwest to have Chinese food on New Year’s Eve, and pork roast on New Year’s Day…and forgiveness is also a big part of New Year’s tradition. It’s one of two days here in Boystown when everyone seems to encourage each other to let go of whatever petty things they hold against others…with the other day being Pride Sunday in June. “Oh, stop going on about that, it’s Pride! Let it go” is as common in June as hearing “It’s a new year. Let it go. Who cares if Mikos stole your boyfriend. Tomorrow’s 2011. Steal his”.
Does the straight world have a similar take on this, with or without the boyfriend stealing?
What version of Auld Lang Syne will you be playing, even if it’s just in your head, as the New Year breaks tomorrow night?
