Flowers peeking, warmer air, blue skies...has our long awaited spring finally arrived. It makes me feel like singing and breaking out the picnic blanket. So now that it’s officially spring, I thought I’d reflect on some beautiful music which suits this beautiful season.
“Thus came the lovely spring with a rush of blossoms and music, flooding the earth with flowers, and the air with melodies vernal”.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Here are my Top 10 Songs for Spring 2018. Enjoy:
It Might As Well Be Spring - Ella Fitzgerald (1955 recording of the song from the 1945 film State Fair)
Pure class. What a voice.
The First Days of Spring - Noah and the Whale (2009)
This makes me want to laze in bed on a Sunday morning, listening with a cuppa (yeah right with three kids under 5!).
Spring Affair - Donna Summer (1976)
I love this - it makes me want to dance (if only I could dance).
Ooh La La - The Well Pennies (2017)
I have just discovered this band and this song sounds like spring.
Spring Fever - Elvis Presley (from the 1965 film Girl Happy)
This is such a fun little song - a real jiggly foot-tapper.
Spring - Vivaldi (published 1725)
A list of Spring songs wouldn’t be complete without this violin masterpiece.
Is It Just Spring - Lily Frost (2006)
Having spent many an evening in jazz bars with my husband, this takes me back to some happy times.
Spring - Tracy Chapman (2008)
Ah Tracy Chapman - such a unique storytelling voice, she really paints a picture.
I Am The Spring - Morcheeba (2010)
Another Sunday morning one, with lovely guitar and beautiful vocals.
Spring Wind - Jack Johnson (2010)
This is just gorgeous.
