Ten Songs For Your Spring Playlist
My Top-Ten Songs For Spring Weather
Well it's official - spring is here! Time to take the plastic off the windows, fire up the grill, and start working in the garden. It's a great feeling, being able to enjoy the world around you without having to think ahead too much about your clothes choices or getting sick from cold air blowing on your face.
Opening up the windows in your home and car are two of the things that remind me of spring more than anything else. All the extra sensory information that comes flooding into your life when you do this is unbelievable! When I'm finally able to roll my car windows down again, it always surprises me how many sounds there are on the road. And all the sounds and smells that come flooding in through your house windows, the feel of a breeze on your face, and watching my cat sit in the windows and daydream about chasing all the squirrels... The only thing I know that can really help express all these feelings is music.
So without further ado, here are the top ten songs that help me enjoy the flood of springtime feelings. I hope you enjoy them, and let me know what you think!

Some of These Songs Seem Strange?
Well, a lot of them remind me personally of spring. Some of them are just good road-trip songs, and my family used to drive to Washington DC for every spring-break. If some of the songs seem kinda old, that's because it was my parents driving us, so it was their favorite driving music or bust. Some of them are good to sing and dance along to while drinking an ice-cold beer during your first grill-out of the season. Others just have that sort of spring sound to them. But no matter what it is that makes them good spring songs, I hope you enjoy them!
Update for Spring 2012
Well, the song isn't new, but this little section is. I really love this song, and now that I'm getting ready to leave Wisconsin and head out on a RTW trip this year, this song is going to be in my mind a lot this spring. Hope you enjoy it!
