Music has a way of taking you back in time

Gene Deason

If you enjoy music, you know that every season has a soundtrack. While it’s most apparent in the weeks before Christmas, other times of the year also have signature tunes. It’s true whether you’re singing hymns at church, or listening to radio stations that feature popular music.

A lot of the music heard before Christmas is more accurately described as “winter” music, celebrating cold weather and snow while never once mentioning the word “Christmas.” Nevertheless, as soon as the calendar turns to December 26, songs like “Jingle Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Frosty the Snowman” go back on into storage for another 11 months. That’s odd, because in most winters, the nastiest weather arrives in January and February.

Summer brings carefree beach tunes, while spring and autumn have seasonal selections as well.
