Tunes for Groundhog Day

About this playlist

On February 2, Bill Murray’s pal Punxsutawney Phil will once again be escorted from his cozy burrow in western Pennsylvania to tell America if spring is right around the corner -- or if we should hunker down for another six weeks of snow and ice. Our fascination with the groundhog, as well as the uniquely folkloric tradition with which he is associated, has spawned a surprising number of songs through the decades. Everybody from Eminem and Primus to Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker and Lisa Loeb have paid tribute to the adorable, little fuzzballs. There’s even moody jazz tunes, punk ragers and smooth R&B jams dedicated to them and their special day. Click play whether Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not!
