10 Songs of Springtime

Spring is finally here in the north. It seems like we go to bed one day to dull, dead brown last year’s grass, and wake up the next to flowers, leaves and birds singing.

To celebrate the welcome arrival of colour and birdsong, here are 10 of my favourite popular music songs about spring.

  1. Frank Sinatra – Spring Is Here
  2. Astrud Gilberto – It Might as Well Be Spring
  3. Ella Fitzgerald – Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (Holly Cole does a great version of this song too)
  4. Lou Rawls – Spring Again 
  5. Barbra Streisand – You Must Believe in Spring
  6. Judy Collins – So Early, Early In The Spring
  7. Tom Waits – You Can Never Hold Back Spring
  8. Sarah Vaughan – Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year
  9. k.d. lang – I Dream Of Spring
  10. Mario Lanza – Younger Than Springtime
