With the New Year fast approaching, I think we’re all looking for a way to start 2018 on the right foot (or whatever foot we didn’t use for 2017). Whether you’re hosting a party or ringing in the New Year solo, a little bit of ambience never hurt anybody, and of course that includes music. So what track should you play to insure the best possible start to the year ahead? Take the pressure off your playlist because Twitter has some thoughts.
Users are weighing in with their go-to songs to play at as the clock strikes midnight, as well as the perfect time to press play for the perfect auditory countdown-experience. If you're feeling all kinds of feels this New Years Eve, there’s a couple Frank Ocean tracks as per one of his Twitter fan’s recommendation.
If you play “Skyline To” by Frank Ocean at 11:59:31 on December 31st, Frank will say “that’s a pretty fucking fast year flew by” just as 2017 ends.— Blonded. (@blondedocean) December 15, 2017
If you start listening to “Nights” by Frank Ocean on December 31st at 11:56:30, the transition in the song will be perfectly synced with the switch from 2017 to 2018 at midnight. Which is a great way to end and start the year. 🤞🏾— Blonded. (@blondedocean) December 15, 2017
If you have even more feels, there's literally ANYTHING by Coldplay.
Or maybe let your inner bad bitch reign in 2018 with a little RiRi?
if you play "james joint" by rihanna at exactly 11:58:48 on new years eve, the song will transition to "kiss it better" at exactly midnight. end this year right and start off your new year even better— miss fortune, bounty hunter (@httbae) December 18, 2017
And because Twitter is Twitter, some users are of course using this moment to drop some serious shade.
if you play "look what you made me do" by taylor swift at exactly 11:59:07 on new years eve, you’re a loser cuz that song fucking sucks lmao— kurtis conner (@kurtisconner) December 17, 2017
if you play Gucci Gang at 11:57:36 PM on New Years Eve it’s perfect because the song will end right before midnight in 2017 and we can leave it the fuck there because that’s where it belongs.— Nocturnal Brownie™ 🦉 (@MoodySith) December 17, 2017
The fun doesn't stop at music, though. For those of you looking for a more visual experience, there’s content for that too.
