Everyone has their favorite summertime anthems, and no list of summer songs can be complete without Kool & the Gang‘s smoothed out, summer serenade, Summer Madness. In great respect to the yin and yang, you cannot pay tribute to the summer without acknowledging the phenomenon of winter. Few people organize a playlist or mixtape to celebrate the arrival of the winter solstice, but here is a song that can be part of your soundtrack for the cold months ahead. As Kool & the Gang magnificently pay homage to the summer season, on their 1975 album entitled Spirit of the Boogie they released an ode to the winter, which was aptly named Winter Sadness. This track is an excellent compliment to the better known summer tribute, as it can be considered an early predecessor to a remix, having similar instrumentation, tempo, feel, chords, and overall sound.
This song represents the aspects that make the winter seasons beautiful, and it is a great tune that will be an excellent accompaniment to the cold but picturesque winter days and nights.
