♫ “Shall We Take A Turn?” by Korpiklaani — when you can’t decide between headbanging and folk-dancing so you just split the difference.
♫ “Running With The Wolves” by Korpiklaani
Rousing metal + accordion instrumental from Finland.
♫ “Gimme chocolate!!” by Babymetal
Squeaky idol-pop mixed with heavy metal? Thanks, Japan!
I don’t want to diminish anyone’s New Year celebration, but I can’t imagine a better one than Ukrainian drag sensation Verka Serduchka performing Rammstein’s “Du Hast” on New Year’s Eve with Christmas trees, dancers in folk and mining outfits, and gouts of fire.
♫ “My Name Is Silence” by Madder Mortem
That Norse woman really belts it out.
♫ MIDNIGHT PARTY: “Ievan Polkka” by Korpiklaani will revive you like strong coffee!
(Not that I need wake-up energy right now, but the Shuffle hath spoken.)
