2019 definitely had its downs, but it’s important to remember that the year had some real ups, too.
In the words of actor, musician, and comedian Tom McGovern, “it’s easy to dwell on the bad stuff that happened this year.” What’s not easy, however, is taking some of the year’s best good news headlines and turning them into a hilariously catchy tune.
As 2020 approaches, McGovern — who you may recognize as the dude who played both Jim Halpert and Andy Bernard in The Office! A Musical Parody — did just that.
While you attempt to unwind from another ridiculously chaotic year, please enjoy the this refreshing song about some of 2019’s milestone achievements — from same-sex marriage being legalized around the world and a “sweet-ass train” being built in the UK, to a new royal baby, Greta Thunberg’s existence, and more.
