Saturday night will usher in 2017. A year that in order to be successful must simply avoid nuclear fallout. The New Year is the night everyone is expected to find a partner to kiss at midnight. It's the concept behind one of the enduring songs in the Christmas catalogue.
“What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?” is a holiday song that expouses the sentiment of asking the one they love if they'll be their date on New Year's Eve. It's a song that need not relegate itself to December, take the line “maybe it's much too early in the game”. Is the first of January too early to ask for someone's lips on New Year's Eve? I say there's nothing wrong with preperation. Prepare ahead for failure.
