As in, boy I’m mighty thor after blowing all the thnow off my driveway. Ouch. You know, though, if I’m complaining after a mere six inches of frozen precipitation, it really has been a mild winter.
To celebrate, then, ten semi-random songs about snow, winter, and spring:
- Red Garland, “Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year” (All Kinds of Weather)
- Tom Waits, “You Can Never Hold Back Spring” (Orphans)
- The Bangles, “Hazy Shade of Winter” (Bangles: Greatest Hits)
- Galaxie 500, “Snowstorm” (On Fire)
- London Symphony Orchestra, Aaron Copland, dir., “Appalachian Spring: 1. Very slowly” (Copland Conducts Copland)
- Bill Evans, “Spring is Here” (The Last Waltz)
- Arab Strap, “Chat in Amsterdam, Winter 2003” (The Last Romance)
- Yo La Tengo, “Winter A-Go-Go” (Summer Sun)
- Mediæval Bæbes, “So Trieben Wir Den Winter Aus” (Salva Nos)
- David Byrne, “Winter” (Music from the Knee Plays)
And for the record: 35 songs with winter, 8 with spring, and a surprisingly small 9 with snow. This is probably just because I deliberately excluded Christmas songs from the count.
