That's why DNAinfo New York put together this Spotify playlist, featuring 20 winter-themed songs to be the soundtrack to your snow day.
The playlist features classics from bands like Styx and Simon and Garfunkel, alongside indie acts like Superchunk, the Dismemberment Plan and the King Khan and BBQ Show.
All music styles are well-represented. If you're not in the mood for the soft piano melody of Belle and Sebastian's "Fox in the Snow," skip on ahead to the decidedly heavier "Winter's Wolves," by Austin rockers the Sword.
So don't worry about heading outdoors. Just sit back and relax. Like EPMD says: "You Gots to Chill."
