Here’s 20 of the Best Tweets From the ‘If You Play This Song on New Year’s Eve’ Meme
The latest meme to take off on Twitter is all about ringing the new year in right (and after 2017 we could all use at least 30 seconds of hope). The gist is, you start playing a song at a specific time so that when the clock strikes 12, you hear something that starts 2018 with a bang. People have some amazing suggestions and obviously some funny twists to the format. Here are some of our faves!
