Bet you're surprised that our playlist of songs for the snow does not contain the big daddy of them all 'White Christmas'? Well our reasoning is simple, everyone knows that song - even those don't find Christmas music all that great - and we're here to broaden your festive palette! So there are plenty of numbers in awe of the miracle of snow that you are likely to have never heard of before. And what pleasures you have been denying yourself as little gems such as Doris Day's 'Snowfall', Elvis' 'On A Snowy Christmas Night' and Julie Andrews' 'See Amid The Winter's Snow' all deserve top billing each December.
This playlist is not without its tried and tested standards however as Bing merrily runs through a rendition of 'Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!' and the coolest cat of them all Ella Fitzgerald applies enough exotic heat to 'Frosty The Snowman' to ensure he is in danger of melting. The real joy in this collection of chilly odes can be found in the less celebrated yuletide ditties however. Like Tori Amos' piano rich 'Snow Angel' which may well be unassuming but is strong enough to have you prostrate on the kitchen floor slowing flapping those imaginary wings in unison.
