Songs for a Cold and Gloomy Day

By Giliann Karon


I walk a lot – it’s something I’ve been trying to incorporate into my routine lately, so I don’t feel too cooped up while working from home. I tune in and out of the music while I’m on my walks, and I designed the playlist with that in mind. Some songs fall into the background while I trudge through the slush; others demand your full attention.


Listen below for the songs I’ve been playing on repeat.
