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.

01. Rooney – “I Can’t Get Enough” [ iTunes ] I tell you yes, you tell me no, I ask you why, you never let me know, you close your eyes, I hold you tight, but it’s no surprise, I’ve got nowhere to go. When I think of Rooney I think of summer, and this is a danceable summer song that everyone needs! **For fans of Phantom Planet, The 88, and OK GO 02. Court Yard Hounds – “The Coast” [ iTunes ] Blue skies, green waters, white birds in the air, brown skin, blue collar, and the wind blowing in my hair. Another great summer song that everyone needs! **For fans of Dixie Chicks and Sheryl Crow 03. The Swell Season – “Young Hearts Run Free” [ *free* download ] Young hearts to yourself be true; never get hung up when love really don’t love you. I recently saw this band live and I was blown away by their performance, needless to say, their albums have been on heavy rotation. This is a cover from the 70’s that they’ve modernized quite a bit. **For fans of The Frames and the movie “Once” 04. Neon Trees – “Animal” [ iTunes […]
