Songs About Winter & Wintertime


In many parts of the country, the brightly colored falling leaves of autumn and a plentiful harvest give way to wind-blown, storm-driven, barren trees and the cold factor is beginning to take it’s grip, even though the calendar doesn’t show winter officially for a couple of weeks yet. Snow is accumulating more and more as we get deeper into the last month of the year. For some, the bitter cold frigid weather, blustery winds, driving storms, and accumulating snowfall may be depressing but I for one thoroughly look forward to the wintertime weather every year, and not because it means Christmas is near. A nice crackling warm fire, hot beverage, soothing hot tub and surrounded by good company make this time of year extra special. The holiday buying season is in full swing by now even though everybody is not quite caught up in it yet. Time to break out the winter tunes to enjoy as you go through your day-to-day activities. I’m trying to avoid a majority of the Christmas related songs except for a few that emphasize the winter season. Maybe you’re looking for a winter theme playlist for a particular event coming up. The following suggestions may help you pull it off. As always, there is a wide variety of music genres here as well as time span.

Stay bundled up and enjoy :P
