Many parts of the country have been experiencing very wintry conditions and when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better to do than get wrapped up in a blanket and stick on some tunes to get you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.

Here are some top-notch tunes to help you ride out the weather:

‘Ice Ice Baby’ – Vanilla Ice

Got a problem with feeling cold? Vanilla Ice will help you solve it! The Miami rapper’s breakout single also became the first hip-hop track to reach No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

‘Riders on the Storm’ – The Doors

It is said that after recording his main vocals for track, frontman Jim Morrison whispered the lyrics over them to create an echo effect.

‘California Dreamin’’ – The Mamas & The Papas

The iconic hit was first penned in 1963 by Californian band member Michelle Phillips after experiencing the harsh snowy New York weather.

‘Snowblind’ – Black Sabbath

The track featured on the band’s fourth album ‘Vol.4’ and was in fact a reference to the expensive cocaine habit they developed at the time.

‘Snow (Hey Oh)’ – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

The track featured on the US rockers ninth studio album ‘Stadium Arcadium’. Released as a double album in 2006, it was also their last with guitarist John Frusciante before his second departure from the band.

‘Coldest Winter’ – Kanye West

Kanye samples Memories Fade by Tears for Fears for Coldest Winter, which featured on his fourth studio album ‘808s & Heartbreak’.

‘Winter Winds’ – Mumford & Sons

Let the mandolin play! The sentimental track was the second single to come from the folk quartet’s debut album ‘Sigh No More’.

‘Angels’ – Robbie Williams

Despite only ever reaching No.4, the classic 90s ballad spent 27 weeks in the UK chart and is by far Robbie’s biggest-selling hit. And okay, okay…it’s not technically a “wintry” track, but who doesn’t love making angels in the snow?


The Killers

‘Mr Brightside’ sets new chart record after spending 260 weeks in the UK Top 100.

Paul Simon

Paul Simon sells entire song catalogue to Sony for undisclosed sum.

BST Hyde Park
