If you’re active on social media you’ve probably noticed the latest New Year’s Eve meme that’s been circulating. The meme consists of giving suggestions as to what song – and which minute of it – you’re supposed to play during your New Year’s Eve party, so that you get to set the mood for 2018 and start the year off right. The song can be depressing, funny, obscure, uplifting, or strange, but the point of the meme is to make it as appealing and memorable for all.
Check out some of the most memorable song selections below:
