Music to Commemorate Winter
I awoke this morning to the realization winter is upon us and will be hanging around for the next few months. The season is in full swing, and it surely looks and feels like it here in Atlanta, Georgia. The temperatures have dropped to uncomfortable lows, and the trees are mostly bare. Their formerly brilliant autumn coats are ghosts on the ground, long ago crunched underfoot or spirited off by the chilling wind, and the branches are long, spindly fingers reaching towards a smoky blanket of ash-colored sky. The natural world has slowed to a crawl, and the landscape appears solemn but beautiful. It seems fitting to share winter songs to commemorate the season–although it is my least favorite. I don’t particularly like winter cold, but it is an inevitable part of life.
Here are some of my favorite winter musical finds to warm the heart and feed the soul:
There is no way to implement a winter music theme without including this amazing song from Tori Amos.
A classic, and yes, the original version was done by them and not Glee (groan)
What would a winter theme post be without Vivaldi?
I would be remiss not to include The Bangles, since I am a child of the 80′s (although I’m a teen of the 90′s)
This song is just plain pretty.
Mumford & Sons gets all the love in the US, but John Smith gets love from me, too. But speaking of which…
How could I not include this song?
Ah, yes, The Mamas & The Papas. This song brings back memories of my mom, grandmother, and childhood.
I know I missed dozens of beautiful winter songs, but I did find some good ones. What other winter themed songs would you include in this list? Tell me in the comments.
Please share this post with other music lovers who might enjoy a little commemorative winter music. Thank you!
