My Winter Playlist

As we go into the holidays, I thought I’d put together a short playlist of some of the songs that I tend to set on repeat during the fall and winter months. I used to have an extensive playlist that fit the rainy weather of life in the Seattle region, but somewhere along the way must have deleted it, although I don’t remember doing it. My goal is to slowly go through and build out that playlist again, with songs that go back to my late 80’s college dorm/apartment years, such as Winter Marches On by Duran Duran, which reminds me of quiet days with the snow coming down. Hope you enjoy this mix of old and new(er).

I should point out that this is NOT holiday music, but music to be listened to in the dark while sitting alone and staring out the window at the falling rain or snow.
