Song of the Week – My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year), Regina Spektor


Today’s SotW post is short and sweet. It’s a sentimental toast to the New Year by Regina Spektor, “My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year).”

Raise your glass and we’ll have a cheer
For us all who are gathered here
And a happy new year to all that is living
To all that is gentle, kind, and forgiving
Raise your glass and we’ll have a cheer
My dear acquaintance, a happy new year

And what’s wrong with a little positivity in these troubled times? Nothing. So as twenty-fifteen comes to an end and you reflect on the events of the past year – personally, politically, globally – have faith that the next one may be more “gentle, kind, and forgiving.”

Enjoy… until next week.
