WACKY WEDNESDAY: New Year's Songs from Around the World


Holy Zozobra, Batman! It's traditional New Year scarecrow burning time in Ecuador.

New Year's Eve is only three days away.. And around the world there's a lot more ways to sing about it than "Auld Lang Syne."

Here's a quick spin around the globe to hear a sampling of New Year songs.

Let's start out with a New Year song by a group that might prompt Sting to ask, "Do the Russians love their crappy boy bands too?"



Let's go to Korea for some equally obnoxious but more polished sounds. It's K-Pop group UNIQ's "Happy New Year."



Here's a New Year's Eve drum party in Morocco



This is how they do it in South Africa


And finally, here's one I actually like. It's Mongolian underground rock star and yoga instructor Sunderia and her band playing "The New Year Waltz."
