The DJ Polar Vortex Group Playlist: Cause Baby It's Cold Outside

Polar-vortex-289x238By Eliot Van Buskirk of

Here's the NOAA's temperature map for this morning (see for warnings for your area).

As hordes of technologists try to dig themselves out of a hangover in time for day two of the Consumer Electronics Show, those in the eastern two thirds of the country face a different challenge: a record-setting cold snap, as actual polar air has migrated there from the actual North Pole.

This so-called Polar Vortex is not only a freezing cold weather pattern for these regions; it’s also a great band name, as many have pointed out.

It’s also a perfectly workable DJ name, and so in the grand tradition of collaborative playlists, we present DJ Polar Vortex, a collection of cold weather tunes generated by our editor in the hope that readers will continue to add to it (drag Spotify songs onto this playlist when you’re in the Spotify app, and they will appear on this page).

Note: We use and recommend many music apps and services here; we use Spotify for these because A) It’s easier than, which isn’t collaborative anyway, and B) At this point, out of the major subscription services, only Spotify’s collaborative playlists can be joined by anyone and offer full-track playback for free.
