“New Year’s Resolution” by Camera Obscura

You’ve had enough of Belle & Sebastian, but you still want something Scottish and twee? Look no farther than Camera Obscura of 4AD, who have created five charming indie-pop albums with titles like “Let’s Get Out of This Country” and “Underachievers Please Try Harder”, as well as this 2013 track “New Year’s Resolution” from album “Desire Lines”.

‘New Year’s Resolution’, taken from Camera Obscura’s 4AD Session. The five-track session was shot at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow, where the 16th-century clock tower is one of the city’s most recognizable structures.

“The idea behind the session was pure and simple – Camera Obscura are a perfect band, they record their songs all playing live together and there’s a beautiful, unblemished chemistry in that unity.”

‘‘Let’s Start the New Year Right’’ by Bing Crosby

Irving Berlin wrote “Let’s Start the New Year Right”, which was originally recorded in 1942. It was written for the Broadway musical Holiday Inn, which starred Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. This song encapsulates the emotion of the final minutes of the previous year before the start of the new one. This period might be filled with reflections on the previous year and goals to start the New Year off correctly. Although the song was included in the film, the entire soundtrack for Holiday Inn was not published until 1979.

This song is a terrific way to start a conversation about New Year’s resolutions, and it would go nicely with a selection of New Year-themed music. It may also be utilized as a transition into memory, a musical engagement chance, a movement opportunity, and more!

  • Release: 1942
  • Genre: Holiday/Show Tune
  • Length: 2:34

And the couples we know are fondly kissing

Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it’s much too early in the game

Ah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same

What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s eve?…”
