"Resolutions" is a song on Jonathan Coulton's fifth album, Thing a Week Two.

History

"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.

Live performance

"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.

Trivia

  • 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
