|Release||Thing a Week Two|
"Resolutions" was released as the fifteenth Thing a Week on December 30th, 2005, in honor of New Year's Day 2006. The "lyrics" are a list of "20 Healthy New Year's Resolutions for Kids" from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The music is a variation of Auld Lang Syne.
"Resolutions" is believed to have never been played at a Jonathan Coulton concert. Given the sampled nature of the song, it is unlikely that it will be performed.
- According to Jonathan's blog entry for the song, instruments played in this song include the dobro and a toy piano belonging to his daughter (presumably the same one later used in The Presidents).
- The main theme used in the tune is a slowed down slide guitar version of Auld Lang Syne
"Resolutions" is currently only available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of Thing a Week II. Of course, this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.
Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store.
"Thing a Week II" is available for purchase as a CD here.
