Dance The Cold Away With Our Polar Vortex Playlist

MTV News has the perfect playlist to get you through the bitter cold.

Have you heard of Distorted Polar Vortex? Nope, it’s not some hot new “indie” band out of Brooklyn that merges polka and loop pedals, it’s basically the reason why we’re all so freaking frigid right now.

According to CNN’s senior meteorologist Brandon Miller, residents across the U.S. are currently huddling under all of the blankets due to the wrath of old DPV, which he describes as “circulation of strong, upper-level winds that normally surround the northern pole in a counterclockwise direction — a polar low-pressure system. These winds tend to keep the bitter cold air locked in the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is not a single storm. On occasion, this vortex can become distorted and dip much farther south than you would normally find it, allowing cold air to spill southward.”

Yup, so basically Santa gave us all an extra special present this year — the present of more time with friends and family because it’s just too painful to go outside.

While you’re waiting for the thaw, MTV News has compiled a list of weather-appropriate tunes to spin as you watch your fingers turn blue. We hear that dancing keeps the frostbite away.
