Should Auld Acquaintance...

It's time to ring in the New Year, to bid farewell to 2013, when we: found out what a Reflektor was, saw the Twinkie make a sterling comeback, added "twerk" and "selfie" to our lexicon, rejoiced at comeback after comeback of artists from My Bloody Valentine to Daft Punk and Nine Inch Nails, and generally celebrated the first year post Mayan Apocalypse.To start 2014 off right, I thought I'd be extra generous and give some great songs to blast as 2013 gives way to 2014. Some are my personal favorites from the year, others just sound perfect to play as the ball drops. Enjoy, stay safe, toast to better days, and have a Happy New Year's Eve.
