The powder is on the slopes, time for winter ski trips and a song list for your MP3 player. You need a good snow soundtrack for your earphones while sledding, building a snowman or shoveling snow. The white world of winter is eerily quiet without your headphones. This list of snow songs will help you get though winter. Here are the top 20 songs about Snow:

A million feathers falling down, A million stars that touch the ground,
So many secrets to be found Amid the falling snow
1/tie – By Tor and the Snow Dog (1973) by Rush from the Fly by Night album. Great song!

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow.
Finally divided by a world so undecided and there’s nowhere to go
3 – Snowblind (1981) by Styx from the Paradise Theater CD
