Based on the fact I wore my winter coat today, it’s officially Winter. That means, it’s time for my office coworkers to collaborate on our soundtrack for the season. (You may remember this Summer’s “Songs for the Swelter“.) Winter’s soundtrack has affectionately been titled “Sounds for the Snow”.
I don’t have the full list of everyone’s contributions, but did want to post mine since you may need a little music to inspire your holiday decorating, shopping or even hibernating.
Two lists follow below. One for Christmas music and one that features great songs for the entire length of this season…brrr. Just thinking about the next few months makes me cold! What songs get you through this season?
