Start your new year off right.
In case you haven't got the end of year memo yet, blasting Auld Lang Syne at midnight on New Year's Eve is over. It's cancelled. We're not doing that anymore. We're so sorry to have ruined your age old tradition but times have changed. We have now levelled up.
Instead of the traditional Scottish bop, people are suggesting songs to drop at midnight on New Year's Eve and then pin pointing the exact moment when you should start playing said song so you can truly ring in the new year as you mean to go on.
Here's some examples so you can start planning accordingly:
if you play "bring me to life" by evanescence at exactly 11:59:08 on new years eve, the first "wake me up" will play at exactly midnight. start off your new year right— oob (@tmcripple) December 16, 2017
