Growing up in New England between Massachusetts and northern Vermont, I’m no stranger to dreary, cold winter days.
I’m talking really miserable weather; (-30) for multiple days in a row, 208 days of overcast/rain/snow. I got through the winters by watching videos and listening to music representative of places I’d rather be.
Here’s a taste of anti-depressant mix for winter:
Israel “IZ” Kamakowiwo’ole ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World. Beautiful song set to images of Hawaii.
Jason Mraz ~ I’m Yours. I can watch this video of enjoying life in Hawaii all day.
Bob Marley ~ Rastaman Vibrations. Any time you can see Bob Marley’s amazing energy live, you feel better.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros ~ Home. You can’t help feeling amazing after listen/watching this.
311 ~ Amber. Beach & California Sunsets, need I say more?
Noah & The Whale ~ The First Days of Spring. Epic video to a beautiful song.
Bob Marley ~ Coming in from the Cold. Not a true music video, but this song got me through weeks of sub-zero weather in Burlington, Vermont.
I need to grow my list, what videos/songs get you out of a winter funk?
