Just like America itself, the musical styles with which Americans celebrate the New Year are diverse.

In this spirit, VOA's Adam Phillips prepared a montage based on "Auld Lang Syne," the traditional Scottish New Year's Day song tribute to good friends and old times.

Listen or download this version of "Auld Lang Syne" featuring excerpts from Guy Lombardo, Jimi Hendrix, Barbara Streisand, the U.S. Marine Band, Mitch Miller, "Feline-Americans" and many others singing the famous song.
