    Many contemporary artists have performed Robert Burns' classic poem "Auld Lang Syne" over the years. And for most of us, at the drop of the ball we're only familiar with its famous opening line. For the curious, here is how Burns' original poem reads:

    Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
    and never thought upon;
    The flames of Love extinguished,
    and fully past and gone:
    Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
    that loving Breast of thine;
    That thou canst never once reflect
    On Old long syne.

    CHORUS:
    On Old long syne my Jo,
    On Old long syne,
    That thou canst never once reflect,
    On Old long syne.


    Since we'll all be mumbling some botched recreation of its tune later this evening, let's look at five pros who have done it right.

    5. Elvis Presley



    4. Lord Huron



    3. The Beach Boys



    2. Andrew Bird



    1. Jimi Hendrix
