2008 is quickly passing by with 2009 on its heels, and it’s just about time to bring out the sparklers and party hats. It’s a unique time of year when looking back is just as important as looking forward, when, as the Earth turns, different cultures scream and kiss and ring in the new year in succession with one another.

Let Internet Archive DJ your NYE party this year with various versions of the beloved song:
To further celebrate, watch this episode of The Jack Benny Program for some good cheer and laughter.
From all of us at Internet Archive, we wish you a very Happy New Year!
