By the time this is posted New Years Eve celebrations will be well underway around the world, and no song will be more played during them than Auld Lang Syne.
Originally a Scottish poem set to the tune of a traditional folk song, it became a Scottish tradition to sing on New Years Eve, funerals, and at the close of other events. As Scots emigrated to other parts of the world, they took the tradition with them.
Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians played Auld Lang Syne at Times Square from 1939-1977, and is credited by many with popularizing the tradition in the US. His version is still played in Times Square after the ball drops every year.
Happy New Year 🙂
