The Official SNC Song of New Year's Day

Jan 1, 2010

New Year's Day - a day of hangovers, resolution writing, college football games, and general recovery. Nancy and I are off to her Cousin Jimmu's open house for an afternoon of family, cut-throat board games, and hopefully a few minutes of the Rose Bowl. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

A happy new year to one and all - let's toast 2010 with a verse or two of "Let's Start the New Year Right" by Irving Berlin, sung here by that great crooner (and underrated influence on all jazz singers), Bing Crosby:

One minute to midnight, one minute to go
One minute to say good-bye before we say hello

Let's start the new year right, twelve o'clock tonight
When they dim the light, let's begin

Kissing the old year out
Kissing the new year in

Let's watch the old year die with a fond good-bye
And our hopes as high as a kite

How can our love go wrong if
We start the new year right?
