Music matters to me. (I suspect you know that.)


Ahead of this new year, I offer an updated (and of course verified) Songs To Ring In The New Year.”



It follows “Light It Up,” my blog four weeks ago, which shared my updated seasonal playlist, Happy Holidays in songs. I hope folks enjoyed this musical cheer throughout the holiday season and that includes celebrations that continue into the new year (think the alternative name of my fave diner).


As we ring in the new year, please enjoy today’s playlist– and do play it LOUD!


If you have Apple Music, you may find a version in iTunes.


And please share the music.


Best wishes this holiday season and for the year.

    In my opinion Streisand’s Happy Days Are Here Again is the best reading of the song
