Spring Playlist

As the days get warmer and the trees begin to bloom, only one thing remains to bring a day to ideal excellence: the perfect song. Here to serve as the soundtrack to nature’s glorious rebirth is a spring playlist.

1) “Pocketful of Sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield

There is no need to explain this choice.

2) “On the Sunny Side of the Street” by Billie Holiday

Jazz has the ability to lend itself to the extreme of emotion. In this case, the emotion is that of an irresistible smile.

3) “The Sound” by  The 1975

This track has a surprisingly ‘pop’ beat for the band; however, spring is all about change, so embrace it.

4) “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence and the Machine

This song, used in the trailer to the film Eat, Pray, Love, is a journey in itself. The song begins with light, airy vocals before abruptly transitioning into a beat suited for running and skipping full speed through a field of flowers.

5) “Change of Seasons” by Sweet Thing

Some songs naturally provoke the urge to train for a half marathon. This is one of them.

6) “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles

Yes, a cliché choice but also an immediate mood elevator.
