The Slopes Are Alive With The Sound Of Music
Could there be anything more exhilarating than tearing down snow-covered slopes with the sun on your back and the wind in your hair? Well, how about being accompanied by your very own soundtrack? Here is a selection of exhilarating songs to listen to when you’re slope-side.
Kate Bush - 50 Words for Snow
According to Bush, the name of this song was inspired by the claim that Eskimos have 50 different words for snow. Funnily enough, Eskimos have around the same number of words relating to snow as we do!
Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Snow ((Hey Oh))
Snow Patrol - Chocolate
Bing Crosby – A Cold, Cold Winter
For those who are a bit less rock and a bit more jazz. This is the perfect old school classic to snuggle up with by the fire, as you thaw out after a day’s frolicking in the snow.
Madonna – Frozen
A wintery song if ever there was one, this haunting Madonna number is sure to have you feeling nostalgic as you take in the mountainous surroundings.
Idina Menzel – Frozen
You don’t have to be Princess Elsa to enjoy the snow, but it helps. This a great one to stick on while you’re prepping the kids and getting them wrapped up for the day ahead. You’ll soon have them singing “The cold never bothered me anyway”.
Parade of Lights – Golden
This Los Angeles band might not have much experience with snow where they’re from, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make perfectly sweet slope-side music. You’ll feel like an Olympic champion when you’re boarding down the mountainside to this euphoric track.
Dixie Chicks - Taking the Long Way Around
This song always makes us think of travelling and letting go of our inhibitions, and what better place to channel these vibes than a vast mountain setting?
Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
Nothing screams ‘adrenaline junkie’ like careering down a hill to this rock ‘n’ roll ballad.
Galaxie 500 - Snowstorm
Hypnotic and moving, this Galaxie 500 track is literally about the onset of a snowstorm. If the cold doesn’t give you goose bumps, this track surely will.
