Clearing the Browser Tabs – Auld Lang Syne Friday Edition

| December 31, 2010 | 2 Replies

One of my favorite songs is “Auld Lang Syne”, and the work on which it is based also happens to be one of my favorite poems. So far as I know, I’ve no Scottish blood in me, but when I read Burns, I wish I did.

I’d be a bad blogger if I didn’t give you a video to watch as well. There are plenty of versions of “Auld Lang Syne” available, but this one, I think, is my favorite. It was taped on the occasion of the opening of the Scottish Parliament in 2004 and I get goosebumps every time I watch it. This, also, is worthy of goosebumps.

Here’s to a good 2010 and an even better 2011.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere !
And gie’s a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

And now, links.
