winter mix(es)

I had a request to make and upload a winter mix from a friend and I went a little overboard. I started to put songs on a playlist and there were just way too many so I ended up with 3 seperate mixes. The first will remain untitled and is simply songs that I personally associate with winter. There are stories/events behind some of them, others make me feel wintery, and others are just inexplicable. If you have a problem with a song not being wintery enough, take it up with my left temporal lobe or something like that - I don't remember too much from psych. Second is songs that actually containing winter, snow, ice, or something wintery in the title. Third is more winter titled songs, but they are all instumental. The Do Make Say Think song doesn't have the title attributes but it is from Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn so I guess I could have included the whole album, but I picked one. Most of the the songs are mp3s but some are AAC, so if you don't use iTunes, get it. The zips are on megaupload as usual, so pardon the ads, but it's fast for uploading and downloading. So...
