Flying Sparks 2012-11-11: Wintertime

Iskra - Funkenflug 2012-11-11: Winter Time [en thumb]

The days has become shorter, the nights longer. It has been become colder. The world is white sometimes, but more often it is just uncomfortable outside. It’s wintertime. That’s why a motley mixture of music about winter and coldness – for walking in the snow or for sitting near the heater. […]

Recently, I listened to the remix compilation I Like It Like That of Fania Latin classics in more detail. I already had put the […]
