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

History[edit]

"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[edit]

"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.

  • The main theme used in the tune is a slowed down slide guitar version of Auld Lang Syne
