Apocalypse this, apocalypse that. Today is also the Winter Solstice, or in less pagan terms, the first day of winter. All morning long, we’ve been freaked out about the “end of the world,” and somewhere, in a Celtic prayer circle, some 1,000-year-old druids are serving their unicorns yuletide mead, invoking the winter goddesses, and laughing at the futility of modern man.

Actually, the Winter Solstice was celebrated by a plethora of differing cultures, and many of our current celebrations, like Christmas and Hanukkah, are said to be derivative of these ancient holidays.

So, in honor of our ancestors, and the fact we don’t have to eat dehydrated boars brain for the next four months, here’s a list of some of our favorite wintertime songs.

Because it was one of Freddie Mercury’s last songs, at the top of our list is “A Winter’s Tale” by Queen.
