Songs for Spring Playlist

Buzz In: Help Me Make a "Songs for Spring" Playlist!

Ahhh. . . Springtime. This is one of my favorite times of year for music, when you can start taking more leisurely walks to work, ambling to the songs on your iPod. Or play some easygoing tunes in the car with the windows turned down — just a crack for now, but it's enough to feel the promise in the air. So, tell me: what songs best exemplify this season? What should I put on my "Songs for Spring" playlist?

I have some ideas to get things started. Belle and Sebastian's "Another Sunny Day" has that pleasant, mellowing effect, while "99 Red Balloons" makes me want to bop down a sun-splashed street. The songs can be thematic in terms of title or lyrics (like Outkast's "So Fresh, So Clean") or evocative in tone (like the lovely instrumentals of Blur's "The Universal").

No need to embed the music or include links, just put the song titles and artists in the comments below and we'll build a sunshine-and-soft-breezes playlist. To see some of my ideas and to add your own,


Songs for Spring:
"New Soul" by Yael Naim
"So Fresh, So Clean" by Outkast
"The Universal" by Blur
"99 Red Balloons" by Nena
"Love Goes Home to Paris in the Spring" by Magnetic Fields

I'll have to agree with Donovan-Sunshine Superman and Nico-Fairest Of All Seasons along with The Rolling Stones She's A Rainbow and Beachwood Sparks. And to name a specific song from Goldfrapp's Seventh Tree, I'd pick Happiness or Little Bird even though the name of a summer month is in the lyrics. Os Mutantes-Minha Menina The Beach Boys-Good Vibrations (even though I guess that's more summery Bob Dylan-Corrina Corrina The Concretes-You Can't Hurry Love +maybe Warm Night and their cover of Miss You The Boy Least Likely To-I'm Glad I Hitched My Apple Wagon To Your Star (one of the cutest song titles ever) April March-Fille A Moto or Le Temps de L'amour Maybe something by Camera Obscura?
