I've actually been hoping that Slightly Dark would do another Christmas album smile  Can't wait to listen to it!

...also, one of my suggestions made it in!

Was playing through Secret of Mana over the break.

Agreed with ORIGINAL POST (from over a year ago), "A Wish" (track 16), which plays in the snowy area of the game, is totally awesome Winter VGM.

Witchmakers, but no "Another Winter"?  Buh?

Those bell gongs toward the end of the second refrain just make the piece.

The thematic nature of VGM is indeed something awesome, especially when creating custom compilations. Going outside while it's snowing with some winter-themed tracks on a MP3 player is quite a magical and enjoyable experience in my opinion, employing the music in a similar, yet different context. It enhances the atmosphere somehow, notably with the cold temperature and smell that games can't recreate.

All suggestions so far are really awesome! And the Slightly Dark mixes are particularly great. Here's some more that I've gathered on my side:

Batman Returns - The Penguin's Lair
Croc: Legend of the Gobbos - Be Wheely Careful
Gift - Iceland
Jazz Jackrabbit 2: Holiday Hare '98 - White Hare
Jet Moto 3 - Khumbu Ice Falls
One Must Fall: Battlegrounds - Crystal Cold (old)
Outcast - Ranzaar (World of Snow)
Overboard! - Arctic - In-Game 2
SpellForce: The Breath of Winter - Cenwen
Star Fox Adventures - Snowhorn Wastes
Switchball - Ice World
Unreal Tournament 2003 - Ice Fields
Zone 66 - Ice Wind (SB)

Most of these are rather obscure and hard to find from the usual VGM shops, but I've made them available here if anyone wants to give them a listen.
