Andrew Kober: "Auld Lang Syne" (Traditional, cover by James Taylor). Cliché? Maybe. But this is the song I always want to hear at 12:01 on Jan. 1. It's a nice reminder heading into a new calendar year that we should take the time to "drink a cup of kindness" in between gulps of champagne. There are thousands of great recordings, but I'm a sucker for James Taylor's version.
