This is my mix tape to help from cold to warmer weather. and "Winter '05" . The warm keyboard in "We Gathered in Spring" and "March (A Prelude to Spring)"

  • "White Winter Hymnal," by Fleet Foxes is a beautiful, curl-up-by-the-fire song.
  • "Winter '05," by Ra Ra Riot, longs for spring.
  • "We Gathered in Spring," by Midlake, could melt snow by itself.
  • "March (A Prelude to Spring," by Jon Foreman, brings enough sunlight to make things grow.

8 a.m. Laura Abel

A brief tribute to the fellas.
  • "Mr. Oysterhead," by Oysterhead
  • "Mr. Ambulance Driver," by The Flaming Lips

  • "Too Too Fast," by Ra Ra Riot

Great music with a catch alt rock rhythm. These songs would make my commute outstanding. A little partiality to David Byrne, I know, but great music all the same.

  • "Psycho Killer," by Talking Heads
  • "Not Fair," by Lily Allen
