Stepping Out or Staying In: Music for New Year’s Eve

happy new year

Stepping Out or Staying in: a New Year’s Eve Music Playlist

With the thousands upon thousands of songs out there, this one is narrowed down to the anthems that embody the feeling of stepping out on New Year’s Eve.  We celebrate with feeling that time has stopped and we can dance and party as if the night will never end – but when it does (hopefully with a kiss), we know that tomorrow is really a new day. After all, “it’s just another New Year’s Eve…”

You don’t have to be going out to enjoy the music; kick up your heels with a glass of your favorite something and have yourself a private celebration of all you’ve come through this past year and ring in the next with a kick-ass attitude!
