My Favorite Chirstmas Songs 2018 #2

Auld Lang Syne, B.B. King, 2001

“Auld Lang Syne” is a Scots-language poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 set to folk music.  This song’s presence on the list is admittedly a little bit of a stretch, since it’s best known for being sung at New Year’s Eve these days. 

The song is usually performed at a fairly slow tempo, but B.B. King’s rendition is more upbeat.
