When it comes to romantic songs about winter, there are plenty of tunes that don't mention Christmas. Maybe you don't celebrate the holiday, or perhaps you just aren't ready to start thinking about Christmas because of all the stress that comes with it. Whatever the case may be, you're sure to find some romantic songs about winter on this list that will leave you feeling nice and cozy even though it's cold outside. So grab a cup of hot cocoa or eggnog and snuggle up with the one you love while listening to these amazing tunes:
This is one of the best romantic songs about winter for a gal who is longing for her lover on a chilly winter night. The music makes it sound a little sneaky, and this lyric proves that the tune is about a forbidden romance: "I don't care what other people say / I'm going to love you, anyway." The girl in the song also begs her lover to come see her, and she says that she just can't stand it any longer. So it's the perfect winter song to listen to while you're impatiently waiting for your winter Romeo to come calling. Just be sure to have a warm fire waiting for him after he braves the cold, cold night for you.

A lot of people complain that the lyrics in this song sound kind of rape-y, but I think they're actually kind of sexy. It's just a song about a guy using the bad weather as an excuse to get his girl to stay and snuggle, right? Don't worry—I'm not that naïve, and I can see why people are bothered by the line, "Say, what's in this drink?" However, I don't think that the girl in the song really wants to leave her lover. She's just playing hard to get because she's trying to come off as being a good girl (this is like the "Blurred Lines" of winter songs), and she mentions the drink simply to change the subject or to blame its strength on her wavering resolve to walk out the door. But if this version from the "Elf" soundtrack still disturbs you, perhaps you'd prefer the She & Him version that reverses the female and male roles so that the woman is begging the man to stay.
And now let's move on to a less scandalous winter song. The only debate "Let It Snow" can cause is an argument over which one of the bazillion versions of the tune is best. I chose this festive version because Frank's voice is smoother than the butter on that corn that you brought for popping. This is definitely one of the most romantic classic Christmas tunes with cozy lyrics like this: "When we finally kiss goodnight / How I'll hate going out in the storm! / But if you'll really hold me tight / All the way home I'll be warm." At least the nice guy in this song didn't use the cold outside as an excuse to try to sleep over.
Paul McCartney and Youth teamed up to create this cheery tune. It features the holiday sound of bells ringing along with this romantic line: "Bells will ring out for our love." Dancing is a great way to warm up on a chilly day, so maybe this song will encourage you and your special someone to create a romantic moment with a fun winter waltz around your cozy kitchen. It's an upbeat song that's great to listen to while doing a little holiday cooking. You can also sip on some eggnog while listening to it so you'll really feel that holiday high.
It's kind of shocking that The Doors produced an upbeat tune about wintertime, but I'm glad that they did. Yes, there are chilly lyrics about the wind being cold, but it's a really hopeful song about wanting to fall in love during the wintertime. Here are some of the lyrics that will light your fire: "Come with me dance, my dear / Winter's so cold this year / You are so warm / My wintertime love to be." Obviously this song is perfect for a winter love that's just blossoming, and what better excuse for a December romance than wanting a warm body to snuggle up with? This is also another tune that encourages lovers to keep the cold out by cutting a rug.
This yummy holiday song might make you want to add a few extra marshmallows to your cup of cocoa. I absolutely love the way it makes a winter landscape seem all sugary and sweet. Instead of portraying a winter day as being bleak and gray, it describes a sparkling Candy Land complete with marshmallow clouds and whipped cream covering the ground. It does encourage the fellas to take their favorite girls out for chilly winter walks. However, there's no need to leave the comfort of your toasty abode when the song paints such a pretty picture for you.
This is the perfect winter song to listen to while enjoying a romantic dinner. It's a sweet love song that will take the edge off of the biting cold with heartwarming lyrics like this: "Winterlude, Winterlude, my little apple / Winterlude by the corn in the field / Winterlude, let's go down to the chapel / Then come back and cook up a meal." This delicious little ditty describes a perfect lazy winter's day spent with a lover. It also has a springy, upbeat feel that will make a cold winter night seem more like a sunny summer afternoon. If any guy is reading this, you definitely should dedicate this tune to your own Winterlude.
I've tried to include a wide variety of winter songs here, so hopefully you'll find something on this list that makes you feel all romantic while you're trying to stay cozy on a cold day. We often associate good feelings with the holidays during the wintertime, but you don't need tinsel and presents with pretty paper to enjoy the season. So do you have any favorite romantic winter songs that weren't included on this list?
