The votes are in.
Last week, with a snow blown €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song about or which mentions Winter?
You answered in your dozens creating a brrriiliant playlist of chily classics.
But there could be only one winner.
Winter by Tori Amos
‘A Galaxy Very, Very Near’ writes:
‘Snow can wait I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hands in my father’s glove
I run off where the drifts get deeper.’
A haunting and beautiful song about the relationship between a father and his daughter and the inevitable passing of time.
If We Make It Through December by Merle Haggard.
Stephen Moran writes:
From the school of “we’ve got both types of music: Country AND Western” comes the original outlaw Merle Haggard with “If We Make It Through December” teaching us a way to live within the law. Surely the ballad of the current Covid lockdown.
January Hymn by The Decembrists
Millie Bobby Brownie writes:
Now I know this might seem a bit early in the season for this pick, but January Hymn by the Decembrists is a really lovely little tune, very mellow and easy to listen to. I highly recommend listening to it of a cold miserable winters evening (not unlike this one). As it is, winter in Ireland gets worse after Christmas and continues into mid April, when suddenly it’s summer again.
Nick says: Thanks all and a very happy Christmas!
