TORONTO — Whether you’re having a New Year’s Eve party with friends or marking the occasion alone in a room full of cats, you’re going to need some tunes.

Here are 10 tracks to play before, at and after midnight.

“New Year’s Resolution” – Otis Redding & Carla Thomas

Set the mood with this oldie.

“The Night They Invented Champagne” – Sylvia Syms

Story continues below

Celebrate the bubbly (even if it’s cheap domestic sparkling wine) with this song. Oddly, no flute solo.

“Funky New Year” – Eagles

The Eagles got funky for this New Year’s track. Now it’s your turn.

“1999” – Prince

It’s almost 2014 but let’s party like it’s 1999. Remember 1999? We all thought the world was going to shut down at midnight. Fun times.

“The Final Countdown” – Europe

The clock is ticking and it’s almost midnight. Turn up the volume…

“Auld Lang Syne” – Guy Lombardo

Canada’s own Guy Lombardo conducts this classic version of the New Year’s song to which no one knows all the lyrics. Go on, start kissing.

“Auld Lang Syne” – Mariah Carey

Keep the Syne going with this cheesy version.

“Celebration” – Kool & the Gang

It’s 2014 and we’re still alive so let’s celebrate!

“Raise Your Glass” – P!nk

Now that we’ve got the party started, pop some more bottles and get messed up.

“New Year’s Day” – U2

In case you and your party guests are too drunk by now to remember what you’re celebrating, here’s Bono to remind you.
