Let’s Celebrate – A New Year’s song

Never in my lifetime have I seen such a collective eagerness to move on to another calendar year. The 2020 memes will live on forever, but m hope the pain and suffering will subside and sanity will prevail.

As soon as the election results were announced on Saturday, we exhaled a huge sigh of relief. OK. We’re ready for 2021 more than ever. It’s officially Christmas/holiday season now! Although George only makes his famous horn cookies between Thanksgiving and Christmas, he deemed this occasion exceptional enough to grant my request. I thought this was also a good time to release this song to add to the festive mood.

I wrote this to a brief last year with collaborator John Navarrette.

We wanted to create an airy, light, celebratory vibe that felt elegant yet accessible.
One thing that came to mind is how these gatherings make us meet people we would never have met otherwise, and how often these encounters change our lives forever, for the better.

It was meant for a New Year’s Eve type of ad. While it did get pitched to the client, it ultimately didn’t get the placement. It did, however, appear on a CBS TV show earlier this year.

If you like this song, please consider adding it to your library. It really helps tell the streaming algorithms that my music is worth sharing with more people 🙂

LET'S CELEBRATE 
 
Open hearts, 
Hugging arms
Squeeze out worries
Making space for change

 In no time
Life's behind
New connections 
Soon feel old as kin

ooooooh

Come on, come on, come on, let's celebrate
Our loves to come, our moments past (yeah)
There is no time like the present
No better present than memories
So c'mon c'mon c'mon 'cmon
C'mon c'mon c'mon 'cmon
C'mon c'mon c'mon

To start a new page

About the bad times
Coz like magic
Here comes a brand new year
