Songs and music often become a soundtrack to our lives. It’s important to choose occasion songs appropriately, because studies show they’ll be associated with the memories you create for the rest of your life. Here is SheKnows’ ultimate New Year’s Eve playlist that will have you dancing and laughing until midnight and well into the new year.

1

“Red”
Taylor Swift

Red Taylor Swift

This year wouldn’t even be right if we didn’t include Taylor Swift. The pop-country star has delivered some of the hottest tunes ever — not to mention completely inspirational for us girls. We pick her hit single “Red,” which is all about losing in love without regrets — an attitude we should all take with us into the new year.

2

“What Makes You Beautiful”
One Direction

What Makes you Beautiful One Direction

We all like to feel beautiful ringing in the new year, and the British heartthrobs of One Direction give us a power tune to say goodbye to 2012 while nonchalantly celebrating our beauty.

3

“Scream and Shout”
Will.i.am and Britney Spears

Scream and Shout Will.i.am feat Britney Spears

We are in love with this new club anthem from Will.i.am and the pop queen herself, Britney Spears. We’re all going to want to scream and shout out our feelings from 2012 to the beat of this new hit.

“Gangnam Style”
Psy

Gangnam Style by Psy

Because it wouldn’t be a homage to 2012 without “Gangnam Style.” Our dance moves were revolutionized with this one, so let’s pay some respect as we say our goodbyes. Because after all, maybe we’ll never hear it again in 2013.

5

“Lights”
Ellie Goulding

Lights Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding’s hauntingly beautiful voice took over the radio waves this year, and we have a feeling we’ll be hearing more tracks from this fabulous Brit in 2013. One of our favorite songs from the songstress is “Lights” — to match the brilliant lights in Times Square.

6

“Diamonds”
Rihanna

Diamonds by Rihanna

Speaking of Times Square, that huge Swarovski-studded ball that drops is a little bit like a diamond in the sky. This powerful ballad from the equally powerful Rihanna is not only empowering, but will make a statement in the last moments of the year.

7

“We are Young”
Fun.

We are young by Fun

“We Are Young” and Fun. Nothing more need be said. You’ll never be younger than you are in this moment, so have some fun and ring in the year celebrating youth and the beautiful life ahead.

“Beauty and a Beat”

30 Funny New Year Memes & New Year’s Eve Quotes To Start The Year Off Right

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Laugh your way into 2019.

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the new year.

I love that people are excited to leave the past behind and focus on the future. There is a universal chance at a fresh start and that’s awesome. Some people take to the streets to celebrate while others go to social media to post their New Year’s resolutions. Everyone seems happy.

On the flip side, a ton of people are screaming “new year, new me,” when often times they will be the same person with the same old habits. It never fails. Hearing it year after year can be a little bit exhausting.

But once that gets pushed to the side, I realize that overall people just want a reason to be able to change. The new year gives them that opportunity and no one can be mad at that.


Aside from the drinks to be had and the kisses to be exchanged, the new year brings us something even greater to be excited about — memes! They are guaranteed to make us laugh as we will find at least one that is scarily relatable. Memes are known for tackling the things that everyone has been thinking but are sometimes too scared to say. And to top it off, they have the perfect picture attached to a little piece of text. These memes allow people all over the world to connect at a rapid pace as they are dropped in group chats and shared on various social media platforms.

Lucky for us there are memes for everything, including the new year! We will get to smile as we silently thank all the people who took the time out to create memes that have us dying of laughter. It is only right that we share the funniest memes as 2019 nears us. What better way is there to get into the new year spirit than to have a good laugh?


Below are 30 funny memes about the New Year to start 2019 off right.


1. Will you stick to it this time?

“My goal for 2019 is to accomplish the goals of 2018 which I should have done in 2017 because I promised them in 2015 and planned them in 2014.”


2. Shady much?

“I wish some people’s new year’s resolution was to start thinking twice before opening their mouths.”


3. No one is judging you.

Whether it be weight loss, going on a vacation to Hawaii, or working to become a famous writer, it can be daunting for us to start these challenges. This is often because we are not sure on how to start this new challenge or afraid that we won’t succeed. We tend to take this negative mentality with us and end up not following through with whatever challenge or goal we set out to achieve

However, the new year is a great time to change attitudes and wipe the slate. Every new year is a fresh start. Yes, you may carry some burdens from last year to this year, but with the new year comes new possibilities. Leave 2018 in 2018!


It’s time to embrace the good and bad from last year and see it as an opportunity for new experiences to come our way. Take time to reflect and decide what New Year’s resolutions you want to live by. What do you want from the new year?
