Music Fans Share What Time To Play Certain Songs On New Year’s Eve To Start 2021 Right
Getty Image Taylor Swift, Kid Cudi, and Lana Del Rey can be the perfect way to say bye to 2020 and hello to a (hopefully) brighter year…
In 2017, a fun annual music trend began (as Know Your Meme notes). That was when fans started figuring out at what time to start playing certain songs on New Year’s Eve so a highlight from the song will happen the instant the clock strikes midnight and the next year begins. People have shared new discoveries in the trend in the following years, and now there’s a new batch of them for 2020.
One fan noted a discovery about Taylor Swift’s Evermore highlight “Long Story Short,” tweeting, “if you play long story short by Taylor Swift at exactly 11:56:32 pm on New Years Eve, Taylor will sing ‘long story short I survived’ at exactly midnight, and I think that’s a nice way of ending this effing year” Meanwhile, somebody else figured out how to hear Phoebe Bridgers scream at midnight, while another person worked out how to start 2020 with some encouraging words from Kid Cudi.

Lenny Kravitz’s Unheard Symphony, Rock Icon Calls Out Black Media Snub
Lenny Kravitz, the powerhouse behind late ’90s and 2000s rock hits, is a prominent figure in his genre. However, he feels that Black media has not recognized his contributions to the music industry. Despite receiving praise from various organizations, Kravitz recently revealed in an exclusive interview cover story that Black platforms like BET or The Source Awards have failed to acknowledge his musical contributions. This has sparked a conversation about recognition and representation in the music industry.
Kravitz expressed his candid disappointment, “To this day, I have not been invited to a BET thing or a Source Awards thing. Here is a Black artist who has reintroduced many Black art forms, broken down barriers—just like those before me. That is positive. And they don’t have anything to say about it?” The absence of such recognition has prompted social media debates, with users speculating on possible reasons and drawing comparisons to other artists’ experiences.
Some discussions have centered on the contrast with artists like Prince, who navigated the rock realm without encountering similar oversights. The debate has also delved into whether rock music is still perceived as a Black art form in the 21st century, considering its historical roots in African American culture. Critics have questioned whether Kravitz’s prolific collaborations with other Black artists have failed to translate into the recognition he deserves.
The discourse has extended to whether Kravitz intentionally courted a white audience, raising questions about the artist’s self-presentation and the evolution of his music. As the industry witnesses an increasing blend of genres, Kravitz’s case serves as a learning example, highlighting the complexities of representation.
While the reasons behind this apparent oversight remain elusive, the ongoing dialogue emphasizes the need for a more inclusive appreciation of artists, especially in a musical landscape where genre boundaries continue to blur. Stay tuned to Honk Magazine for further updates on Lenny Kravitz’s journey in the ever-evolving world of music.
