Auld Lang Syne by tradition is what everybody sings bringing in the new year. According to "How stuff works" the loose translation of Auld Lang Syne is "times gone by. How stuff works Wikipedia goes into a bit more detail stating that it is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song . Wikipedia Blah,blah whatever the case, the song invokes memories of past times and the bringing in of a new year. For me this year has been a good one. I have good health, family.... and I have a new leader of the free world (I respect and admire) (a person of color) that I'm looking forward to supporting "Barack Obama" (You go Boy!!!). So with that said bringing in the new year there is only one person that can sing this song for me. That is the late, Great. Lou Rawls. Lou take it away....
