4 New Year Songs to Learn on the Piano

new year celebration

It is finally 2021, and we wish everyone a Happy New Year! To celebrate the New Year, we have listed 4 songs for you to learn at the very beginning of 2021. As the new year symbolises new beginnings, the songs and tutorials listed below will be beginner-friendly for those who are just starting to learn the piano!

To start off, we have...

  1. ABBA - Happy New Year

An under-appreciated song by the dancing queens ABBA, "Happy New Year" tells the story of feeling 'lost and blue' even though people are celebrating new beginnings. Although it has rather grim lyrics, it can be a comforting song for those who are feeling lonely and troubled during the New Year.

2. Taylor Swift - New Year's Day

Taylor Swift was honored by the AMAs as Artist of the Decade in 2019, but she cleaned up at awards ceremonies across the global circuit. An underrated ballad off the singer’s Reputation album, “New Year’s Day” is sweet and simple in execution, with lyrics that reveal Swift as the talent she is.

3. U2 - New Year's Day

“Nothing changes on New Year’s Day,” a realistic statement that Bono of U2 sings in his 1982 chart-topping pop-rock anthem. But that doesn’t stop us from turning up the volume to its highest notch when playing it!

4. Auld Lang Syne - New Year's Eve Song

Probably the most-sung New Year’s Eve song, “Auld Lang Syne” is a poem that was written by Robert Burns in 1788 and roughly translates to “old times.” This song has to be on every New Year's list of music as it is one of the most recognisable tunes worldwide.
