seasonal music

I find the music I listen to goes a long with the weather like a fine wine with dinner. The genres and timbres taste better depending on the season, temperature, and atmosphere outside. A lot of the times, I'll end up hashing up old favorite albums like Waltz for Koop (Koop), Talkie Walkie (Air), When it Falls (Zero 7), or Guster (Parachute)... (as you can see, mostly genres like trip hop and soft pop). Anything really that relaxes me and doesn't distract from the excellent air and life I'm surrounded by. In the winter time, I tend to do the opposite with very deep, meaningful, lyrical and depressing music so I'm drawn in and taken away from the cold.

A nice peaceful drive with the windows down is the way to go. It doesn't even have to be a long one. But to me there's nothing better. The reason I bring this up is because I've been changing my listening selections on my drive to work. They put me in a sort of meditative state. By the time I get to work, I feel myself full of positive energy and ready to go. I wish there was a way to achieve the same thing in the winter, but I don't know if its possible.

Better rap this up... I'm sorta rambling... hope to do something fun tonight... A beer outside with friends would be clutch...
