Best Version of Auld Lang Syne!

The classic New Years song is “Auld Langs Syne”. This is my favorite version. It’s by Straight No Chaser. They are an amazing accapella group. Acapella means that there are no instruments in their songs, only vocals. I promise you won’t miss the instruments. It’s really amazing what people can do with their voices.

But before you listen to the song…do you know what it means? The words were taken from a poem written by Robert Burns in 1788.  To find out read this. And, just for fun and to test your New Year knowledge, take this quiz.

Happy New Year everyone!!

The Little Things

“It’s not the greatest things that make the show. It’s the little things that make the world go.” 

Don’t know who wrote this but I saw it on my uncle’s desk this morning! It’s such a great quote. It sounds like Dr. Seuss but I couldn’t find a source for the quote.

Nevertheless, it truly is the little things that matter most in life. Sometimes the little things do lead to great things but we must live life one step at a time. As we start a new year, let’s do a little thing each day to make our lives and the world better!

Keeping with the theme of this quote, here’s another one of my favorite inspiring songs, Lenka‘s “The Show“:

Most Inspiring Song of 2011

I love music because when I am feeling down, the combination of words and melody makes me feel better. When I’m happy, great music just makes me more so.

What’s even better is when a simple tune expresses exactly what I’m feeling and provides answers to my burning questions of: “Am I the only one that feels this way?” AND “How should I solve the problems I’m facing in my life right now?”

This year the song that really stood out and inspired me when I needed to keep on going was Andy Grammer’s “Keep Your Head Up“.

My favorite thing about this song is it’s message: you have to keep on going even when times are hard. You will overcome this. Or, in Grammer’s words:

“This is just a journey/ Drop your worries/ You are gonna turn out fine.”
