So, as we wrap up 2013, with all its good and bad... let's recap some of the most famed New Year (or fireworks - related) songs and videos.
10. John Lennon - "Merry Xmas (War Is Over)"
While the title certainly alludes to the holly jolly celebrations 7 days ago (Christmas), its lyrics recall about the passing of yet another year.
9. Paula Seling - "A mai trecut un an"
The title itself says it all in this magnificent Romanian tune about the time and how it flies. "Another year over", she chants, reminiscing to the song above.
8. CRBL ft. Adda - "Petre"
This one is clearly a party track, perfect for the midnight celebration, Its music video depicts the countdown to the new year, as it is set on December 31st.
7. Britney Spears - "Till The World Ends"
"See the sunlight, we ain't stoppin'..." this right here challenges everyone to a dance-your-a**-off-till-the-world's-gone-hoedown. And this is the perfect feeling you can get on a night like this!
6. Hurts - "All I Want for Christmas Is New Year's Day"
It's unknown to date why the singer wants to escape from the Christmas period and skip to Jan. 1st, but the beautiful song and its deep lyrics make it a good listen.
5. Rihanna - "Only Girl (In the World)"
Notice the firework burst throughout the middle eight and towards the end of the video.
4. Katy Perry - "Firework"
Katy Perry here urges you to "own the night" like a firework on the 4th of July, but the song can be related to any public holiday with a display of fireworks and lasers included.
3. Jennifer Lopez - "Waiting for Tonight"
The song was used frequently as a celebratory anthem for the dawn of the new millennium. The music video was well known for featuring a Y2K dance party... So, practically, people used to rock to this tune on this occasion. And they still use to!
2. ABBA - "Happy New Year"
Arguably the most famous New Year original song in history, ABBA's "Happy New Year" became the soundtrack to many people's NYE celebrations since its release date, in 1979.
1. Mariah Carey - "Auld Lang Syne"
"Auld Lang Syne" is the most famous New Year's hymn. It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight. One of the best known renditions of it was done in 2010 by Mariah Carey, who was also titled the "Queen of Winter Holidays" for the release of her two multi-Platinum Christmas albums.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!!!
