Post your favourite winter (but NOT Xmas) songs here


#1

Any style or genre, just post some great songs to accompany the season and avoid all that kitschy nonsense for as long as possible. Here’s one to get you started:


#2

The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Meladori Magpie” off of the Tonight, Tonight single. The whole thing is pure winter.


#3

And four more classics to counter holiday music:

Modest Mouse - "Life Like Weeds"

Counting Crows - "A Long December"

Built to Spill - "Velvet Waltz"

Sigur Ros - "Untitled 8"

Recovering the Satellites and The Moon and Antarctica are the greatest winter albums ever written.
