    Snow Songs

    I snowplow for a town is SE Mass.  It's a real s*cky job which entails staying up long hours (usually through the night), but I feel that I am doing my part to keep the highways and byways safe for the citizens of the community.  Well that and the town pays me large amounts of $ per hour to do it. ( OK truth be told it's all about the $) what I am looking for are suggestions for songs that are snow/winter themed to make a play list on my I-POD. 

    Two songs that come to mind are:
          Moonlight Mile - Rolling Stones
          Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys - Traffic

    I was hoping for other suggestions which could help entertain me on what is the most boring, monotonous job that one could imagine.

    Re: Snow Songs

    I used to plow snow too. I didn't enjoy it much either, especially when the phone rang at 3 am and I had to go face what could be 20+ hours behind the wheel. But folks are counting on you, so try to just think about the paycheck.Wink

    While it's got nothing to do with snow, Allman Brothers live at Fillmore is a good long double cd that keeps the groove going. Stevie Ray Vaughn, Couldn't Stand the Weather. Snowblind by Styx (also has nothing to do with precipitation, unless you count a runny nose). By-Tor and the Snowdog - Rush.

    Hawkmoon 269 (U2) has a driving drum beat - put that on continuous play!  It has NOTHING to do with snow, but if I were plowing at 2am, I'd want it on.

    Re: Snow Songs

    I was going to bump up the thread on songs for driving, but when I read it over, it went so off track, I decided against bumping it.   (don't ask me how I remembered it, it was last March, but my memory works in strange ways)

    But if you want to check it over for ideas, jkj, it's on page 8.

    Little Feat -- Six Feet of Snow

    Another song that's not really about the kind of snow you plow . . .   but it's an upbeat song that can help keep your mind off how much fun you're not having.

    Re: Snow Songs

    Neil Young - "Winterlong". It's not about snow but the lyrics do talk about the passing of time.

    Albert Collins - "Snowed In". Actually, there are many songs by Collins that would probably be appropriate, as he is called "The Ice Man." If you like the blues, he is the one to go with for winter driving.

    I just finished composing a song about snow.

    Snow sux - hate that white sh*t - snow sux.

    Thank you.

    Love nothing more than waking up to shoveling for 3 hours.

    Would you feel better if we melted the snow or mixed it with sugar?

    Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Leppard
    Melt the Sugar -- Summer Obsession
    I'm Melting - Rainer Maria
    Dear Prudence (the sun is up, the sky is blue ...) 

    How about:

    Ride it On Baby - Mazzy Star (a nice song for early morning snow plowing)
    Wild Horses  - Mazzy Star cover version (real nice)

    Snow (hey oh)- Red Hot Chile Peppers (not that I like this song ... but jkj might)

    Re: Snow Songs

    Snowblind - Black Sabbath.

    What you get and what you see
    Things that don't come easily
    Feeling happy in my vein
    Icicles are in my brain
    (cocaine)

    Something blowing in my hair
    Winter's ice, it soon was dead
    Death would freeze my very soul
    Makes me happy, makes me cold

    My eyes are blind, but I can see
    The snowflakes glisten on the tree
    The sun no longer sets me free
    I feel there's no place freezing me

    Let the winter sunshine on
    Let me feel the frost of dawn
    Fill my dreams with flakes of snow
    Soon I'll feel the chilling go

    Don't you think I know what I'm doing
    Don't tell me that it's doing me wrong
    You're the one who's really a loser
    This is where I feel I belong

    Crystal world with winter flowers
    Turn my days to frozen hours
    Lying snowblind in the sun
    Will my ice age ever come?

    Re: Snow Songs

    If we're going to include songs about the other kind of snow, there's also 'Snowblind Friend' by Steppenwolf.

    He said he wanted heaven, but prayin' was too slow
    So he bought a one-way ticket on an airline made of snow
