Audio fruitcake: "Winter Weather" by Squrrel Nut Zippers
Brrrrrrrr! It's been pretty cold here in Richmond over the past few days...and I'm loving it! This is my kind of weather. It's no surprise then that "Winter Weather" is my kind of song. As far as Christmas/seasonal tunes go, this one doesn't seem to make the cut on most people's mixes and it's a shame.
The Squirrel Nut Zippers did justice to this song on their 1998 Christmas Caravan album, one of my annual go-tos. Their hot jazz serves as the perfect soundtrack to these sub zero days. It's like a McDLT for your ears!
(And since I'm trying not to repeat artists for this series, do check their take on "Sleigh Ride". Dig that breakdown at the end!)
