The future bringing us words of promise

(Credit for this picture to Alcazar World; thank you!)

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone! I hope you all have a great time tonight; I'll be facing the difficult choice of whether or not I want to watch the ball drop in Times Square or watch as one of the local towns drops a giant fish or a giant sausage. As you may have guessed, it's another song from Magnus Carlsson today (who is apparently in Thailand right now), bringing this up to, what, three songs by him in the past month? It's just that he's done an awful lot of holiday music. This time, it's once again from his first solo album, released in 2001.

Happy Happy Year For Us All--I'm pretty sure this is an original song and, though I can't say it's my favorite thing Magnus has ever done, it does tie in nicely with the date. It's also noteworthy for another reason: it features Alcazar--I think that makes this the first song Magnus performed with Alcazar (as far as I know), since Alcazarized didn't come out until 2003. "Happy Happy Year For Us All" is, as you might expect, an upbeat song with a bit of a holiday feeling to it.

To buy Magnus Carlsson's debut solo album, En ny jul, go here (physical). If you're looking elsewhere for it, his name is sometimes just listed as "Magnus."

Next up: I had a specific idea for tomorrow, but I've forgotten it as of the moment; maybe...hmm...I really can't remember! If nothing else, maybe a song from South Africa.

Drugs are a good thing! There aren't half as many New Year's songs as Christmas songs, so it's always nice to find another one.

Thanks, Pinkie and J'ason! Bed by 10:30 PM? That is very hardcore! Boringly, I ended up watching Times Square--I didn't think people would appreciate me changing the channel to watch giant marine life fall from the sky. Really, where is their sense of excitement?
