Kenny G – “Auld Lang Syne (Millennium Mix)” – (1999)

Why is Kenny G always barefoot on his album covers? Put some shoes on, it’s weird. Bizarrely, this album charted in the top five on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. This version of the song was a top ten hit in the U.S. at the end of 1999. It features sound clips – a walk through the history of the 20th century. It made everybody nostalgic, and since everyone thought the world was about to end, I guess that was a good thing. The song is less about Kenny G, really, and more about the sound clips which are pretty interesting. It’s like a first-hand version of “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” Plus, “Auld Lang Syne” is the New Year’s song for whatever reason (it’s got something to do with Scotland).
