Twisted Mixtape Tuesday: The COLD mix

twisted mixtape tuesdayI’m spending a Monday that was supposed to be spent going to the gym, picking up Christmas pictures, and doing some Christmas shopping sitting on my couch waiting for Roto-Rooter.  Boo!  This isn’t what anyone wants for Christmas-sewage in their basement!

So with lots of time on my hands and little ambition, I can focus my (lack of) energy on Twisted Mixtape Tuesday.  This week is Dealer’s Choice, which means I can share anything my little heart wants. In the past I’ve done such things as all acoustic songs

This week I’m COLD.  I don’t like being cold.  I figured it was either share songs about cold or songs about poop and sewage.  I’m thinking my choices are much more limited if I did the latter, so I’m going to stick with songs that have to do with cold.  And ice.  And December.  BECAUSE I CAN!

Sadly, it’s not even really winter yet!

So Cold-Breaking Benjamin

First up is this little ditty by Breaking Benjamin.  I’ve shared other songs by these guys.  I love love love this group.  I don’t even know why.  I just do.

************************************************************************************************

I Am A Rock-Simon and Garfunkel

A song I listened to quite frequently in my college days.  While not my favorite, when I’m in a mood this is one I like to blast.

************************************************************************************************

Hazy Shade of Winter-The Bangles

See what I did there?  This song was originally by Simon and Garfunkel, but this is my favorite version.  I know I’m breaking my own rule here of never sharing the same song twice.  Oh well, you have to agree it ROCKS, and it’s my all time favorite song by The Bangle.

***********************************************************************************************

Ice Ice Baby-Jim Carrey

This version is much better than the original… I’m going for comic relief.  Vanilla Ice flips houses now. Do you suppose he sings this when turns on the icemaker?

************************************************************************************************

Silver and Cold-AFI

Another group that I’m surprised I like, but they do some really catchy stuff.  And I think they really like cold weather.

*************************************************************************************************

Love Like Winter-AFI

More catchy than the last, and more cold…

**************************************************************************************************

Frozen-Madonna

I had forgotten about this song.  It’s off my favorite album by Madonna, Ray of Light.

*****************************************************************************************************

Cold-Hearted-Paula Abdul

Remember this song?  I believe it was my anthem a few times when I was a teen and then young adult.

**************************************************************************************************

November Rain-Guns N Roses

What?  A playlist of songs about cold without November Rain is like peas without carrots.  Or something like that…

**************************************************************************************************

December-Collective Soul

An interesting fact about this song-it’s great to walk to.

********************************************************************************************

Cry-Faith Hill

So they talk about cold in the lyrics, k?  And this song is great to belt out when you’re having a bad day.

  1. I’ve been suffering from cold-toes this week as well and your post made me smile then laugh (out loud even). Love Breaking Benjamin too and the Jim Carrey was funny. I mentioned in my post about post ’90 Madonna and you listed another one I liked with Frozen. Nice tunes!

  2. Remind me not to comment using my phone anymore. Loser. I lost my whole comment! So… I said something about peeing and carrots, about how that is also my fave version of Hazy Shade of Winter! What soundtrack was it on for 1$ no googling!! Also Ice Ice Baby wins.

  3. OMG, I was CRACKING up at the Jim Carrey video. Hilarious!! That was so funny! Enjoyed your other pics – so creative. I’m going back up to listen to that Madonna song now cuz I don’t remember it.

  4. Oh dear…the Jim Carrey vid… hilarious! That’s exactly how I feel, though, when I tried to do Zumba…”white, white baby….very white, white, baby”… *sigh* 🙂

    Fun theme!
