Happy New Year

Eddi Reader : Auld Lang Syne

2008 was a tough year in a lot of ways (exhilarating in others), so I thought Eddi Reader’s touching rendition of Auld Lang Syne would be a good way of ushering it out. Also, Eddi is Scottish and so is Auld Lang Syne originally. And just to make myself feel old, Eddi’s former band, Fairground Attraction’s one hit wonder topped the charts in the U.K. 20 years ago (ugh, old).

Happy New Year everyone!
