Magic In Tunes: 12/29/2015 - Happy New Year

The countdown to 2016 started. So did the closure to my song-a-day blog theme for 2015. Keeping with the mood, here is the first of the three songs that were going to be part of my closing posts.

This 1980s hit song titled Happy New Year by Swedish pop group ABBA is a perfect ballad to start with. Sung by Agnetha Faltskog for their album Super Trouper, the English version of the song was released in 1999.



Lyrics in English:

No More Champagne
And The Fireworks Are Through
Here We Are, Me And You
Feeling Lost And Feeling Blue
It's The End Of The Party
And The Morning Seems So Grey
So Unlike Yesterday
Now's The Time For Us To Say

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have A Vision Now And Then
Of A World Where Every Neighbor Is A Friend
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have Our Hopes, Our Will To Try
If We Don't We Might As Well Lay Down And Die
You And I

Sometimes I See
How The Brave New World Arrives
And I See How It Thrives
In The Ashes Of Our Lives
Oh Yes, Man Is A Fool
And He Thinks He'll Be Okay
Dragging On, Feet Of Clay
Never Knowing He's Astray
Keeps On Going Anyway

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have A Vision Now And Then
Of A World Where Every Neighbor Is A Friend
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have Our Hopes, Our Will To Try
If We Don't We Might As Well Lay Down And Die
You And I

Seems To Me Now
That The Dreams We Had Before
Are All Dead, Nothing More
Than Confetti On The Floor
It's The End Of A Decade
In Another Ten Years Time
Who Can Say What We'll Find
What Lies Waiting Down The Line
In The End Of Eighty-Nine

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have A Vision Now And Then
Of A World Where Every Neighbor Is A Friend
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May We All Have Our Hopes, Our Will To Try
If We Don't We Might As Well Lay Down And Die
You And I
