The above picture is the traditional New Year’s celebration in Fredericksburg, VA, where they drop a giant pear at midnight. One of the quirkier and more fun New Year’s rituals. Here are some songs to celebrate…
Andrew WK – Party Till You Puke (Buy It) Method Man – Afterparty (feat. Ghostface Killah) (Buy It)
Iron & Wine and Calexico – All Tomorrow’s Parties (VU cover) (Buy Iron & Wine and Calexico music)
And wishes for the rest of the year:
A Tribe Called Quest – Peace, Prosperity & Paper (Buy It)
A closer look at the pear:
Here’s wishing you all peace, prosperity, and a little paper in the new year. Thanks very much for reading, and there’ll be more great music coming in 2007!
