Playlist: Welcome Winter, Goodbye 2012

Happy winter, everyone! We hope you spent your break relaxing with family and friends and chowing down on some tasty grub (we trust you tried each and every one of our holiday cookie recipes, yes? Good). We compiled a playlist of cheesy winter songs to help you get in the mood for the new quarter. The first Monday of classes after winter break is kind of like being doused with icy cold water in the midst of a pleasant, cozy dream. So here’s some Freddie Mercury to help warm your insides on your first day back …

Winter Wonderland Mix

This Year – The Mountain Goats

White Winter Hymnal – Fleet Foxes

A Hazy Shade Of Winter – Simon & Garfunkel

I Don’t Believe in the Sun – The Magnetic Fields

A Winter’s Tale – Queen

Blood Bank – Bon Iver

Winter – The Dodos

Cold Again – Islands

But, of course, we cannot celebrate the start of a new quarter without also reminiscing a bit about the past. Here’s a playlist of some 2012 top hits, curated by blogger Stephanie Son. Our list includes tunes like Solange’s “Losing You,” Fiona Apple’s “Every Single Night” and Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids.”
