“Auld Lang Syne” (“Old Long Ago” or, by interpretation, “Old Times Gone”) is the Universal song of friendship.
As Midnight signifies the birth of a new year; as Burns Suppers everywhere draw to a close; in any situation of parting in the hope of meeting again; the chorus of “Auld Lang Syne” can be heard in every corner of the globe.
The song is originally based on the parting of two friends who may never see each other again. This confirms it as a song to be sung with pathos, unlike the more raucous rendering given so often at the end of an evening’s festivities.
