Sure everyone knows there is a ton of Christmas songs drilled into our heads this season. But what about New Year’s Eve? I’ve been trying to remember songs about New Year’s Eve and I’m really drawing a blank. Except for “Auld Lang Syne” of course. Still to this day I don’t know what it means but according to the Internet, “Auld Lang Syne” translates to “old long since” in English and means something like, “times gone by.” Thought I’d do some research and find a few New Years’ Eve Songs.


    Found this New Years Eve song on Kid Rock’s album “Rebel Soul” If you are in a local band and have ever played a NYE show. Pretty much sums it up. Still great song and still love the video.


  • Ella Fitzgerald - "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?"

    I remember this one from my childhood growing up. But nobody sang it better the Ella Fitzgerald. Truly magnificent vocalist here, more people should appreciate it. Still gives me goosebumps.

  • Dan Fogelberg ~ Same Old Lang Syne

    A 1975 Christmas Eve encounter with his ex-girlfriend in a local convenience-store, 5 years later, Dan released the beautiful song “Same Old Lang Syne”. I know it sounds sappy but to find out it was a true story gives it some street credibility. 

  • Five Iron Frenzy - New Year's Eve

    Five Iron Frenzy is an American band from Denver. Best known for playing ska punk music characterized by an offbeat sense of humor. Fun songs and had to list this one for my love of ska punk bands of the 90’s

  • The Almighty CHIT ! Everybody's Rockin This New Years Eve.

    The last song is a little comic relief from my band. I wrote this song with a very close friend Jen Powers. I noticed there weren’t too many rock songs about NYE and thought I would take a stab at writing a song about New Year’s Eve. A Chit original that has stood the test of time with people without a watch. Enjoy the year 2023 everyone. Hope you catch a Chit show at a venue near you.  ~screamin
