Winter Workout Playlist

Alternative Rock Winter Playlist

Rather than run Christmas classics ragged when working out, opt to play these alternative tunes mentioning Winter, snow, and the holidays. Upbeat tracks from bands like Vampire Weekend will keep you feeling powered up despite the dreary weather. Mumford and Sons, Simon and Garfunkel, Fleet Foxes, and the Head and the Heart offer classic, folk rock sound and seasonally appropriate lyrics so you can still shake it (without having to listen to something like "Jingle Bell Rock") in the spirit of the holidays. Winter-themed songs from the Dodos, Swimming With Dolphins, and I Break Horses are lively and addictive to keep your spirits high even though the temperatures are low.

See the track list.
