Happy New Year everybody. Thanks for checking out MUSIC-SURCIVAL-GUIDE over the last couple of months. I hope to be able to bring you a lot more musings in 2015! For my last post for the last day of 2014 I want to leave you with 2 songs…

One, appropriately enough is “New Year’s Eve” from Nina Gordon (Veruca Salt). This is from her first solo record, Tonight and the Rest Of My Life. This was the first we got from Nina after her departure from Veruca Salt in 1998. It is a fantastic record. Every song is punchy and sweet with really great lyrics.

The second, would have to be the obvious choice. The classic “New Year’s Day” by U2. They just don’t write ’em like this anymore! (Below is the video version and album version)
