vtravelled Playlist: A Winter Walk in Central Park

by andrew December 2010 - last edited February 2013 by Community Manager

This week we head away from the sunshine for a winter walk in the park. And where better for a seasonal stroll than the romantic centrepiece of New York City? The Big Apple has given us more than its fair share of incredible music, so this one could’ve been a hundred songs long... Here are just ten essentials: songs to the city, songs of love, songs for frosty mornings and crisp afternoons; folk-rock to doo-wop, icy strings to brittle beats.

 

Playlist 4: Music for a Winter Walk in Central Park, NYC

  • The Velvet Underground – "Sunday Morning"
  • Simon & Garfunkel – "The Boxer"
  • Television – "Venus"
  • Bobby Womack – "Across 110th Street"
  • Alicia Keys – "You Don't Know My Name"
  • Joni Mitchell – "Chelsea Morning"
  • Blondie – "In The Flesh"
  • John Coltrane – "Central Park West"
  • Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers – "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?"
  • A Tribe Called Quest – "Electric Relaxation"

If you’re in the UK or Europe and use Spotify, you can jump straight to our playlist, here.
