Get ready to wallow in the white stuff: December is upon us! That's right, it's the last month of the year, and December has always been a popular month to write lyrics about. After all, since it's one final look at the year behind us, December is all about reflection...which is a great topic to pen a song about, of course! We decided to pick five odes to the wintery month whose lyrics moved us and shook us, so press play and sing along to these hits that are all about the 12th month of the year:
5. Lana Del Rey — Blue Jeans
"You fit me better than my favourite sweater and I know / That love is mean, and love hurts / But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby"
4. Michael Buble — Cold December Night
"I want something that lasts forever, so kiss me on this cold December night..."
3. Norah Jones — December
"December, come to me / I hope I can see / You're not just in dreams"
2. Linkin Park — My December
"This is my December, this is my time of the year / This is my December, this is all so clear / This is my December, this is my snow covered home / This is my December, this is me alone"
1. Taylor Swift — Back To December
"It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you / Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine / I go back to December, turn around and make it alright"
