Staff Infection: Winter Songs

With the exception of the 50 degree heat wave we got on New Year's Eve, it's been a brutally cold winter here in Michigan. This is the time of year where I would much rather hibernate in my little apartment than bundle up and face old man winter's wrath. In hopes of braving the next few months with a smile on my face, I've complied a little mix to get through the winter solstice. Stay warm, friends!

Fleet Foxes, "White Winter Hynmal" from Fleet Foxes

Brendan Benson, "Cold Hands (Warm Heart)" from The Alternative To Love

Nada Surf, "Blizzard of '77" from Let Go

Nicole Atkins, "Snowshakes" from Bleeding Diamonds

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's, "On a Freezing Chicago Street" from The Dust of Retreat

Yo La Tengo, "Winter A Go-Go" from Summer Sun

The Weepies, "Antarctica" from Hideaway

Each Monday a different Green Light Go staff member will let you in on what songs have infected their ears for the week, while giving you the opportunity to share in the experience yourself.

This week: Lauren Roberts, Green Light Go Talent Coordinator
