Spring has sprung and it’s already beginning to feel like summer in Kentucky. Seriously, it’s supposed to be almost 90° today! Yikes! I miss when it felt like Spring for a longer period of time rather than jumping right into hot, humid weather.
Some of these songs don’t necessarily remind me of Spring but these are a few of my favorite songs at the moment.
01. Death Cab for Cutie – “You Are a Tourist“
“And if you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born then it’s time to go. And define your destination there’s so many different places to call home”
I am so excited that DCFC is putting out a new album this year! I’ve purchased the iTunes Pass where a new song is released every couple of weeks until the release date. I love when artists do unique things like this for their fans. And I love that they made the video for this song live and in one take.
02. The Traveling Wilburys – “End of the Line“
“Well it’s all right, even if you’re old and gray. Well it’s all right, you still got something to say. Well it’s all right, remember to live and let live. Well it’s all right, the best you can do is forgive”
A good driving song and an excellent song to live by. Since embedding is disabled for this particular video you can watch it here.
03. Hanson – “Give a Little (RAC Mix)“
I put the original on the last mix but they’ve just released the deluxe single with remixes. I happen to like this remix (and video) a lot. Plus, all profits go to the Red Cross! It’s a good deal: $2.99 for 3 songs and 4 videos!
04. Chromeo – “Night by Night“
I love these guys and they’re one of the few bands that uses auto-tune appropriately. Not to mention their videos are always so damn entertaining.
05. Joshua Radin – “Road to Ride On“
“You say, someday we’ll know where to go, but we don’t know. I’m always the last one, never ready for the fast ones. Well it’s time to change. So we make our plans, set our sites on a new land. One that’s kind of strange”
Joshua Radin is usually hit or miss for me but this is a really good driving song.
06. Martha Reeves & the Vandellas – “Dancing in the Street“
“All we need is music, sweet music. There’ll be music everywhere. There’ll be swingin’, swayin’ and records playin’. And dancin’ in the streets”
Simply one of the best Spring and Summer songs that I always have on repeat!
