Winter mixes

It is time for everyone to post theirs.

(Possibly some of you live in a place where there is autumn, i.e. not Denver fucking Colorado, so if that's you, post your autumn mix. Otherwise ... winter.)

Note: most of these songs don't actually mention winter, or cold, or snow. I just went for songs that sound cold.

not only is this a terrible mix, because it includes only songs i have on my computer and hence not the ones in my actual collection (because i'm too lazy to look or even think about songs that aren't right in front of me), but it's a fairly depressing one. i think i'll go check suicide off my todo list.
My songs are all really sad too. I was going to add that the mix will either get me through it or keep me from doing so.
Southern California doesnt really have seasons :(

Right now, during the day, its like mid 80s. Maybe not that high. Actually I have no idea, but its hot.

Anyway, no winter mix pour moi...
God the original mix is a good one. "Simple Twist of Fate" is definitely on my list. Which I will post later. When I am more... awake?
this has been greatly influenced by the recent profusely rainy weather.
