HAPPY NEW YEAR!! (Phew, we made it!)

 "NEW YEAR'S EVE"
© Bill Burnett and Peggy Sarlin

Please click here for LYRICS

New Year's Eve has got to be the weirdest of holidays. Unlike most others, which commemorate  someone's birth, or celebrate of the end of a war, or the beginning of a season, or some kind of big religious or philosophical event or concept, New Year's Eve is all about the passage of time. Which is a pretty dreary subject, when you get right down to it.  That's why I think there are no real New Year's songs.  "What Are You Doing New Year's" and "Auld Lang Syne" are about it, right?  So Peggy Sarlin and I took a stab at capturing the ambiguous nature of the holiday in this song and I thought it was appropriate to trot it out for this combination new year and new decade.  Please, let me know what you think of it...

Hey Bill! I'll say New Years is ambiguous.
When the subject of New Years Eve comes up, I often think of a photograph from the late 20's of a group of happy and very attractive bar patrons. Nary a one standing now. But every NY is full of hope, the year is like a slow heartbeat of earthly life, the blood is moving, we're transforming...becoming something that we don't know yet...and we raise our glass to that.
LOVE
Jennie

It does not follow that because we do not subsidize smoking, we should not regulate unhealthy activities. Costs and savings are not the only variable. The fact that obesity creates costs is merely an additional reason to regulate it, not the only one. The main reason is its danger to an individual. smqfyn smqfyn - Belstaff Outlets UK.
