Coat? Check. Scarf? Check. iPod? Check.

It's been a good while since I posted one up here, but every year I do a winter playlist for m'AYEpod.

I'm not sure why.

Maybe it's because I like the cold and the way it makes me feel. All very melodramatic I'm sure but I do like swooshing through fallen leaves feeling morbid and gloomy.

I have just completed this year's playlist, thanks to some help from The Twitterati and recent people on Teh Blogz. ANDITGOESALITTLESOMETHINGLIKETHIS..
