Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote the words of "Auld Lang Syne" in about 1789 for use with a piece of Scottish music dating from 1687, The Duke Of Bucclugh's Tune. "Auld lang syne" is Scots dialect for "Old long since," so the line, "For days of auld lang syne" means something like, "For the good old days." The first Berliner Gramophone, the invention of Emile Berliner, was made in Germany by the toymaker Kämmer and Reinhadt. This toy had a cardboard horn and was operated by a hand crank. It could play five-inch vulcanised rubber discs at between 100 and 150 revolutions per minute. One of the records produced for the toy was "Auld Lang Syne," catalogue number 42, probably sung by Emile Berliner himself, was made in 1890.
Elvis sang the song at the New Year's Eve concert in Pittsburgh on December 31, 1976.
