1. Classic New Year Songs of All Time

I remember that when I was a kid, my father used to play Funky New Year on New Year’s Eve.

4. Hindi New Year (Holi) Songs

Next, I am going to present some Hindi New Year songs for you.

Have you ever heard about Holi?

Holi is Hindu traditional spring festival. It’s also known as the festival of colors.

Why? You must be curious right?

That is because people celebrate it by playing and coloring each other outside, like in the street or even parks.

While the date of Holi is different every year, Holi is on the day after the full moon in March each year. In 2018, Holi is on March 2.

Um, if you are interested in Holi songs, following Holi New Year songs must in your playlist!

Let’s tune the volume up and enjoy it!

Go Pagal
Aaj Na Chhodenge
Do Me a Favour Let’s Play Holi
Soni Soni
Ang Se Ang Lagana
Rang Barse
Balam Pichkaari
Hori Khele Raghuveera
Saat Rang Mein Khel Rahi Hain
Holi Ke Din
Holi Aayi Re Kanhai
Chhan Ke Mohalla

5. Most Popular Chinese New Year Songs

When it comes to Chinese New Year songs, there is a must in my list this year.

That will be Nan Wang Jin Xiao (难忘今宵).

For one thing, this song is the most representative one, because it is always the last song presented in Chinese Spring Festival Gala since 1894.

For the other, since Kathy will visit me, I really want to surprise her with some new tunes.

In addition, Gong Xi Fa Cai (恭喜发财) is also a good choice. You may have heard it as a kind of New Year’s greeting. In Chinese, it means “congratulations and may you have a prosperous new year”.

Therefore, you can’t go wrong with this song.

If you still can’t decide which track is the best, you have more choices below!

Don’t hesitate to try it!

Nan Wang Jin Xiao难忘今宵
Gong Xi Fa Cai恭喜发财
Gong Xi Gong Xi恭喜恭喜
Hao Yun Lai好运来
Hao Ri Zi好日子
Chang Hui Jia Kan Kan常回家看看
Zhong Guo Ji Xiang中国吉祥
Hua Hao Yue Yuan花好月圆
Bai Xin Nian拜新年
Wo Zai Chun Tian Deng Ni我在春天等你
Gong Xi Fa Cai Zhong Guo Nian 恭喜发财中国年
Huan Le Zhong Guo Nian 欢乐中国年

Bonus: We are all familiar with music streaming sites such as Spotify, SounCloud, Tidal etc. However, I bet most of you never think of trying Chinese music websites.

6. New Year Songs for Worship

Are you going to join a New Year’s Eve worship this year?

I think it is a perfect time to confess our sins and start the New Year.

We spend some time with other believers to reflect the past 2017.

And we thank God for blessing us in the new Christian journey.

I remember that when I was in the United States, I went to church every Sunday morning.

I felt relieved and refreshed after the worship.

We all need some time to talk to ourselves and share our feelings.

Here, I’m going to share with you 8 worship New Year songs.

I believe these songs will encourage you in the coming year!

The Old Year Now Hath Fled Away
O God, Our Help In Ages Past
My Faith Looks Up To Thee
Praise To The Lord, The Almighty
I Walk In Danger All The Way
If Thou But Trust In God To Guide Thee
When Peace Like a River
I Am Trusting Thee, Lord Jesus

Besides, I also looked for some New Year’s Eve party playlists from the Internet. If my recommendations did not cover your needs, I hope you could pick up some about New Year from the following sites.


The above are my New Year song collections.
