Another year has passed us by, and there will surely be a lot of alcohol and music flowing freely on New Year's Eve. It's a great time for musicians, since there are always plenty of gigs to go around. One of the best gigs for an artist to land is a performance at Times Square in New York City. This is the location of the famous ball drop, which has been happening since 1907. The event is televised worldwide, so artists who perform will get a whole lot of exposure. This year, the acts include Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Rodney Atkins, and Melissa Etheridge, to name a few. If you're like me, you won't be watching.
Instead, I like to celebrate with friends and family and put on a New Year's-themed list like this one. It includes classic songs for New Year's Eve as well as newer tracks that I find highly deserving.
Here's to 2014. I hope you have a great year!
