For those holiday months when it's really coming down, we've created a list of the best songs about snow ever written. A few of the tracks below are Christmas songs about snow, but most are by regular bands and can be listened to all year long. Snow can be a beautiful sight, even if you're not warm and indoors when it's coming down. Several musicians have written great songs about a fresh snowfall, ranging in genres from folk and country to alternative rock. Good songs about snow range from tunes that are about winter to tracks that specifically mention snow in the lyrics.

Fleet Foxes “White Winter Hymnal” is a super snow song that really gets you in the mood for winter. Bon Iver is another band that uses snowy imagery in their music. Their song “Blindsided” is one of the best for feeling the cold. Kanye West had his fair share of snow days growing up in Chicago. His song “Coldest Winter” is about love lost that feels like an ice cold winter storm.

If you are looking for a different type of snow song check out “California Dreamin'” by the Mamas and Papas. This song makes reference to winter and makes you think about the summer sun. Frank Zappa gives some sound snow advice on his song, “Don't Eat the Yellow Snow.”

Do you have a top snow song? Add it to the list and vote some of your favorites up to the top.
