"Hora Bucuriei" ("The Hora of Joy") is a song performed by Romanian pop artist Loredana in the Revolution Square of Bucharest, Romania's capital, during the first seconds of the 2007 New Year's Eve while people danced the Hora, a traditional Romanian folk dance, to celebrate the admission of Romania and Bulgaria as new state members to the European Union. The festivities were joined by a host of European senior politicians -- European Parliament President Josep Borrell, European Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn, Romanian Prime Minister Popescu Tariceanu, the foreign ministers of Germany, Bulgaria and Denmark.
