PureWow Playlist: Hiking Edition
To the trails! (Or, weather not permitting, the tread.)
If you're lucky enough not to live in a frozen tundra, bring this mellow playlist on your next hike. If you can't remember what the sun feels like, play this baby while on the treadmill and dream of breathtaking views and warmer temps.
Hozier - "Jackie and Wilson"
Tired of the radio turning "Take Me To Church" into a pop song? Switch to this track--or anything else on Hozier's killer debut album, for that matter.
Van Morrison - "And It Stoned Me"
Then move to one of Hozier's countrymen and idols singing a characteristically soulful tune.
Oh Land - "White Nights"
We dare you to be in a bad mood while listening to this little ditty.
Arcade Fire - "Haiti"
A band with as many feelings as it has members.
Simon and Garfunkel - "America"
The only thing more beautiful than the lyrics are the harmonies.
Of Monsters and Men - "Mountain Sound"
Guaranteed to put thismuch more spring in your step.
Neil Young - "Old Man"
Because a little melancholy never hurt anyone.
Fleet Foxes - "White Winter Hymnal"
The scruffy indie crooners make the snow sound almost desirable.
Joni Mitchell - "California"
Dream of beaches and ukeleles while wishing you were half as cool as Joni is.
The Decemberists - "The Crane Wife 1&2"
Calm and heartfelt and lovely.
