Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I like making mix CDs every now and then, and today I decided to make a winter mix, so I went through my 2300-song library looking for winter-themed music. I didn't find as much as I thought I would, although I'm sure I missed a bunch.
Anyone have any suggestions for songs about winter (any aspect of it), that are not traditional Christmas songs (i.e. no "Winter Wonderland")? I listen to mostly indie and alternative, although I'm open to pretty much any genre (within reason; no death metal or blatant emo, etc.) It doesn't even have to have lyrics about winter, as long as it feels "wintery".
Here's what I have so far:
Simon and Garfunkel- I Am a Rock (a winter's day/in a deep and dark December)
Ben Folds Five- Brick (six a.m. day after christmas/i throw some clothes on in the dark)
Death Cab for Cutie- The New Year (so this is the new year/and i don't feel any different)
Jethro Tull- Another Christmas Song (how many wars you fighting out there this winter's morning?)
John Lennon- Happy Xmas (so this is Christmas/and what have you done?)
Rammstein- Spieluhr (in a cold winter night/the small heart is awakened)
Stars- Set Yourself on Fire (in a village on the hills/house buried to the windowsills in snow)
System of a Down- Streamline (my love waits for me in daytime/but i can't see you through the snowblind)
The Arcade Fire- Neighborhood #1 (if the snow buries my neighborhood)
The Decemberists- The Crane Wife 1 and 2 (it was a cold night/and the snow lay round)
The Smashing Pumpkins- Winterlong (we built a fire winterlong/transformed new wire winterlong)
I might also throw in some instrumental songs that I feel have a "wintery" mood.
