There is nothing like music for a bit of atmosphere, so how about some  music with evocative winter lyrics?

Anne Murray – Snowbird

Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring

Lindisfarne  – Winter Song

When winter’s shadowy fingers
First pursue you down the street
And your boots no longer lie
About the cold around your feet

Little feat  – Six Feet of Snow

Six Feet of Snow Comin’ Through My Radio
It’s Rainin’ in Stilettos From Here Clear Down to Mexico
My Hands They’re Numb From Hangin’ On That
Steering Wheel
They’re Frozen Tight, Hope the Wind
Don’t Blow Me Off the Road Tonight

Simon & Garfunkel – A Hazy Shade of Winter

Hear the Salvation Army Band down by the riverside
It’s bound to be a better ride than you’ve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand and look around
Leaves are brown now and the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Queen – A Winters Tale

There’s a kind of magic in the air
What a truly magnificent view
A breathtaking scene

You can probably date me from this list. Any updates?
