Eddie writesOh, So Cold Up North: 5 Songs To Help You Endure This Arctic Winter

by Eddie Sayago

We have just survived a long period of subarctic weather and for that, we are rewarded with a couple of rainy days with temps above 50 degrees. (It was 58 degrees at the time this very sentence about our short winter weather break was written.) And not only do we get winter weather again, but more snow is coming! And the storms have names now. Yippee!

Here are five songs about the cold to accompany you while are walking (in layers) in this winter wonderland. Stay warm!

“Cold Weather Blues” by Muddy Waters [from Folk Singer (1964, Chess Records)]

The opening (oh man, that guitar) 15 seconds is possibly the best way to step outside into this Chicago winter. Its early morning, still dark. Snow is falling onto your head. You can see your breath even though your mouth and nose is covered under a wool scarf. Recorded at Tel Mar Studios in the South Loop, this track includes Buddy Guy strumming on the guitar that sets the mood for the dark wintry day. Oh man, that guitar.
