Winter has reared its ugly head again, and it’s time for a cold ice and icicle song list. We have a winter ice song play-list that’s chilly and crisp – an ode to frozen water, either cubed or forming on the sidewalk outside. Songs about ice, frozen water, crushed ice, and the brutality of love in winter.
