Move over, winter. Spring is almost here, and longer days and higher temperatures are moving in. We have the scoop on five songs to get you ready for spring. Whether you’re looking forward to transitioning your winter fashion to spring staples or just soaking up the sun, welcoming a new season is exciting especially when it comes with warm weather, bright flowers and classic sundresses. Here are five songs both current and from the past that will help put a little spring in your step.
Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles
Starting off the playlist with such musical heavyweights as The Beatles seems steep, but this song is the song of spring. While it seems like the sun rarely makes an appearance in winter, it’s here to party for spring. Putting this song in your music queue is a sure way to melt away those winter worries.
Shake It by Michael Franti and Spearhead
Relaxing on the beach of a tropical island for spring break sounds like the best vacation away from work and class, but sometimes a trip to a more remote beach or no trip at all is more practical. With Michael Franti’s island vibe and the catchy beat, this song can help you at least imagine you’re taking in the sun’s rays thousands of miles away. Poolside drinks not included.
Wildflowers by Tom Petty
Winter may have bullied all the bright flowers and kept them hidden in the cold, but higher temperatures mean they are bound to start popping up everywhere. From lilacs to daffodils, spring flowers make it easy to add some color to your life. Take a note from Tom Petty and embrace it.
Flowers in Your Hair by The Lumineers
I know I’ve gone on and on about flowers, but upcoming music festivals mean flower crowns are going to be the fashion accessory of the season. Pairing some petals with messy curls means you can enjoy your favorite bands live while taking a break from fancy hairstyles.
The Wire by HAIM
I’ve covered warmer weather and brighter flowers so far, but spring fever also means spring fashion. While you sport shorts and sandals or dresses and wedges, you can work your personal catwalk with the help of the Haim sisters and this catchy song that will be in your head for days.
