We don’t want to alarm you, but 2018 is only 13 days away. Scary, right? Well, what’s even scarier is holding a New Year’s Eve party with a soundtrack that lacks the punch that you want the evening to be remembered for. Luckily, some of Twitter’s savviest users are coming to the rescue.
Arguably, the most important part of any New Year’s party is the midnight countdown. You need to make sure that when you welcome in 2018, it’s going to be pretty memorable, and what better way to do that than with music? But you don’t want any old sold playing as the clock strikes twelve, do you? Nope!
As The Verge reports, what seems to have started as a joke on Twitter has suddenly taken a helpful turn, as users on the social website suddenly don the hat of designated party planner.
See, sometime over the last few days, a few Twitter users thought it might have been fun to make note of the time that the best part of a song occurs, and are working out the times to start playing that song so 2018 will be welcomed in to the best solo, riff, beat drop, or chorus. Take a look, below:
If you play Daryl Braithwaite’s ‘The Horses’ at 11:58:50pm on New Year’s Eve that first “that’s the way it’s GONNA BE little darling, we’ll be riding on the horses YEAH YEAH” will play right as the clock strikes midnight. Start off your new year right.

Seriously, is there anything the Internet can’t do? Often, Internet jokes are just annoying images that don’t really help anyone in any noticeable capacity, but this is crucial information you’ll be able to use at your upcoming party to be remembered as one of the best DJs your mates have ever seen.
Oh, and if you’re wondering, if you play ‘How To Make Gravy’ by Paul Kelly at exactly 11:58:06pm on December 31, “Give my love to Angus” will play at exactly midnight. Start off your new year right.
