Winter is my absolute favorite season. There's a few reasons for this, but I think one major one might be the fact that I've lived in the state of Florida my entire life, and I can probably count the number of times I've seen snow on one hand - this means that I've never really experienced any of the "bad" qualities of Winter, like shoveling snow, weeks at a time with no sunlight, and day after day of sub-zero temps. Florida Winters are much milder: we're lucky if it dips into the 30's, and if god-forbid we get to below freezing, the local news outlets begin to act like the apocalypse is nigh. Regardless, I've always wanted to experience a full, "real" Winter, because cold weather nights are what I basically live for. I can't think of anything better than walking down a city street in the middle of the night when it's in the 20's, just you and your thoughts to keep you company. All of these songs serve the purpose of accompanying me on one of these hypothetical walks. Hopefully they'll set just the right mood.
