The local newscasters stated that the organizers for the big party wanted to "go younger with the music this year." Their selections to go with the fireworks: "New Year's Day" by U2, "R-O-C-K in the USA" by John Mellencamp, and "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince. It's good to know that I'm "younger," but younger than what? "How Much is that Doggie in the Window?"
Then, the local singer (winner of a recent talent contest) rang in 2005 by singing "Auld Lang Syne." God as my witness, not once, but repeatedly, she sang "Should all appointments be forgot..."
Kinda changes the meaning of the song. Makes it into a commercial for a PDA. And damn funny. I've been singing it all night.
