Songs about winter typically get a hard time from Christmas song elitists for not being purely festive in tone but our argument has always been that if you took the winter out of Christmas it wouldn’t really be Christmas at all. So our list of 40 winter songs is an attempt to redress the balance in their favour in the hope that you will embrace them over the 12 days as much as you would a Bing Christmas classic. And in that respect even the great man was drawn to the cold season on his 1965 single ‘White World of Wonder’, a jamboree of utter happiness that rarely gets an outing but deserves plenty of attention throughout December.One winter song that has definitely infiltrated the Christmas state of mind is ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’ and while you might be more familiar with Bert Jansch’s 1970’s version we here present a much more contemporary artist from Leeds called Sam Airy who offers a respectful rendition of the old classic. Another successful transition to the Christmas canon of tunes is ‘A Winter’s Tale’ and again we’ve spiced things up a little by featuring the Moody Blues rather than David Essex’s version of events. And who could ever deny that ‘Winter Wonderland’ isn’t a Christmas song as it dreams up a postcard perfect version of an idyllic Christmas scene. Dean Martin’s ‘A Winter Romance’ smacks of his playful character and featured on his 1965 album of the same name where it sat alongside Christmas favourites like ‘Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ and ‘White Christmas’.Despite the above mentioned there are plenty of this list that aren’t as yet classified as winter Christmas songs but we’ll try and make a case for some in particular. Fleet Foxes are one of the most popular contemporary groups and their songs forever usher in thoughts of a calm cool crisp morning. None more so than ‘White Winter Hymnal’ with its feather soft array of cascading melodies. Tex Williams can’t stop mentioning sleigh bells on his Christmas party-starter ‘The Winter Song’ which even reprises ‘Jingle Bells’ on several occasions. How has this gem slipped the attention of Christmas radio? Beyonce’s old group Destiny Child have great fun on ‘Winter Paradise’ which was released on their ‘8 Days of Christmas’ album. Sarah Brighman’s delicate ‘Colder Than Winter’ would fill the gap for those quiet moments amongst the otherwise frantic Christmas appointments and who better to clink a yuletide glass with than crooner Tony Bennett on his ‘I Love The Winter Weather’.If like us you can feel the Christmas love in this list of winter songs then this playlist has done its job. You could probably even save on air con bills by switching these chilly recordings on during the baking hot summer months. And you thought yuleplay was only about providing you with aural thrills!
