Just a few more days until the New Year’s Eve. What better way to say goodbye to an awful year as we greet 2021 with hopeful notions? It is but with good songs, right? Be it through classic new year songs, feel-good music or party songs!

That’s why I am sharing with you guys some of the songs that I’ll surely play as 2020 ends and 2021 comes in. Here are the 21 songs to welcome the New Year 2021!

New Year Songs!

To be honest, I just really had to put this category because duh, it’s New Year!

Auld Lang Syne (The New Year’s Anthem) – Mariah Carey

Here’s Mariah Carey‘s ‘Auld Lang Syne’! This song is known to be sung by many every New Year’s Eve during the countdown. It starts off slow but when the countdown drops and the new year has finally begun, the song goes really upbeat.

Funky New Year – The Eagles

Make sure you start off the year right. Have a blast and forget about all the burden you’re going through. Try leaving it to 2018 by listening to ‘Funky New Year’ by The Eagles!

Feel good songs coming through!

If you just wanna chill before or after the countdown, just having a drink and relaxing on the couch, these songs are for you! Because what better way to end 2018 and start 2019 by feeling good through these tunes, right?

4th Of July (Fireworks) – Kelis

This song can be played in parties. But for me, this track ‘4th Of July’ by Kelis is soothing. The music is captivating and just so relaxing. It’s like you can blast the volume on your earphones and zone out, just focus on the fireworks and nothing else matters.

Havana – Camille Cabello

Yup, this song is everywhere this year! I mean come on, it seems like wherever I go, I could hear Camilla Cabello‘s ‘Havana’. So before the year ends, why don’t you listen and get LSS again until 2021 arrives?  Havana ohh nana

The Greatest Show – The Greatest Showman Cast

Close your eyes and get lost in your imagination. Or maybe, your New Year is such a bomb that ‘The Greatest Show’ should be played in your New Year’s Eve party! Nothing can beat your good mood if you play this such feel good and great track, right?

Firework – Katy Perry

Be shocked if ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry is not on this list. Because come on, ever since its release, this song accompanies firework display. And it just never gets old. Singing to this great song while beautiful fireworks fill the night sky is just an amazing way to start a new year.

Glorious – Macklemore

Who wished to be a crazy rich Asian after watching this blockbuster movie? Because I know I definitely did! Besides that, the OST was so amazing that even if you’re not a crazy rich Asian, it’s like you can really be on top. And to feel good even more by claiming 2021 to be YOUR year, listen to ‘Glorious’ by Macklemore featuring Skylar Grey!

Thank U, Next – Ariana Grande

Of course, the self-love anthem! Celebrate the arrival of a new year and hastily saying goodbye to 2020 by reminding yourself that every past occurrence served a lesson and that this year has helped you grow as a person. ‘Thank U, Next‘ by Ariana Grande should be taken to 2021 to remind you that the best is yet to come!

Maybe The Night – Ben&Ben

For those who need reassurance, give ‘Maybe The Night’ by Ben&Ben a listen before you welcome the new year. Love surrounds you, sweetie! And really, maybe the night holds a little hope for you and more. It’s time to be hopeful and optimistic as a new chapter arrives!

Party the year away!

Yes, party! For those of you who are like me who wants feel-good songs one moment then jump and sway hips the next, this one is for you! Dance your goodbye to 2020 and jump to the beats of good music as you welcome 2021 with these tracks.

Freaky Friday – Lil Dicky

If you’ve heard ‘Havana’ everywhere this year, of course, you’ve heard ‘Freaky Friday’ every day as well! This song by Lil Dicky featuring Chris Brown is so cool and good to listen to. Not to mention, it can get everyone turnt!

BBoom BBoom – Momoland

Don’t think I’m a KPOP fan for even a second haha! But ‘BBoom BBoom’ by Momoland makes everyone crazy. And I’m sure you want that kind of energy on your New Year’s Eve party. Of course, a lot of people know this song and even the dance craze to it! So why not, right?
