Brand New 3.0: So This Is The New Year...

Alright so i just got back 3 days ago from my grandparents' place in London, where i spent the last month or so. I very nearly killed myself while on this trip for 2 reasons. #1: my grandparents' internet access was down the entire time, and they didn't bother fixing it because they never use it anyway. #2: my laptop was wrecked on the flight over. Suffice it to say...i was royally pissed. Anyways, now that i'm back home i can submit that Eisley review i've had done for ages (thankfully i recovered my hard drive). And this list is some killer New Year's songs, which i for some odd reason have felt very attracted to lately.
Jet Black New Year

"Have we lost everything now?
Walking like each other's ghosts around these silent streets. The sedatives tell you everything is alright.
Like calendars dying at New Year's Eve parties.
As we kiss hard on the lips and swear:
This year will be better then the last."
Fave New Year's Song hands down...Geoff Rickley is a genius. Such a kickass song...a perfect expression of emotion and aggression.
2Death Cab For Cutie
The New Year

"So this is the new year.
And i don't feel any different."
Obligatory. The New Year doesn't really arrive until you hear this.
3Robert Burns
Auld Land Syne

Classic classic classic
New Year's Day

Favorite U2 song, no doubt. "Though I want to be with you, be with you night and day...nothing changes on New Year's Day."
5The Pogues
Fairytale of New York

Fuck my deion...i'm doing a Christmas song too. And this is the best one there is.
6Regina Spektor
My Dear Acqaintance (A Happy New Year)

7Jeff Buckley
New Year's Prayer

Once again, epic voice. Such a mysterious and chilled-out song.
8The Eagles
Funky New Year

"Went to a party, just last night.
Wanted to bring the New Year in right.
Woke up this morning, i don't know how.
Last night i was a happy man, but the way i feel now...
It's gonna be a FUNKY NEW YEAR." Yeah, i like funky music.
9B.B. King
Bringin' In A Brand New Year

B.B. King, can you be my grandpa? Cuz i love you.
Tomorrow I'll Be You

"How long can the wheels maintain a spin at this velocity?
Dead forests of tenements rise like antennas.
The miles are adding up and the days are counting down.
Before we're bathed in the dawn of New Year's Day." This song is the sequel to Jet Black New Year, and amazingly it's just as good. Once again, Geoff's lyrics blow my mind. Awesome.
