Music for Your Snowpocalypse

Chances are if you're anywhere in the US and Canada this week, you're about to get pummeled with snow, freezing rain and, if you live in Indy, no chance the roads will ever be plowed or salted (sorry -- the snow removal in this city bothers me almost as much as the entire state of Ohio -- almost).

Anyways, while you're watching Jersey Shore reruns working from home, put these songs on for some added inspiration. And yes, I know none of them are new, but they're still great and worth listening to again and again.

1. Miike Snow -- Sylvia
2. Passenger -- Night Vision Binoculars (Okay, so it's like the Stalker's National Anthem -- it's still good!)
3. Guster -- Satellite
4. Phoenix -- Lisztomania (Classixx Version)
5. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals -- Paris (Ooh La La)

This summer I was sent to Taos, New Mexico for work. This state is stunningly beautiful. I felt very lucky driving on the winding highways through the shadowy mountains taking in the scenery.
