When the sky starts falling in winter, there’s nothing better to do than crank up a playlist. Watch the snow come down while getting serenaded by Dean Martin and Tori Amos. Then you go play in it—get crazy with the Bangles and Foreigner. When you get too cold, come back inside and listen some more while warming up with some Jimi Hendrix. And when all hope is lost, the Beatles have some words of encouragement. Finally, Lou Reed puts it all in perspective. That seems just about right.
