Longer days and warmer weather draw people outside to make the most of the day. Creating the perfect spring playlist adds on to the joy the season naturally brings.
Here Comes the Sun — The Beatles
The perfect spring playlist needs a classic, and what better song than “Here Comes the Sun?” After feeling tired from the cold winter, it’s exciting to see warmer weather in the forecast. When this song starts playing, it is hard not to hum along while walking or getting spring cleaning done. Even if it is a rainy spring day, the song still manages to evoke warmth through the calming instrumentation. It is a timeless classic that invites every generation to welcome spring.
Heaven — Niall Horan
Spring finally brings out the sun again and brings new life. The best kind of spring playlist has a proper mix of old and new songs. For a lot of people, spring is associated with romance and the hopeful beginnings of something that could potentially last forever. While “Heaven” by Niall Horan was released back in February, it has all the right production and themes to make it a great addition to the spring playlist. It is a repeat-worthy song, and it will be featured on Horan’s new album “The Show” coming out June 9. If anyone wants something to look forward to, this is it!
Flowers — Miley Cyrus
“Flowers” by Miley Cyrus is another song that was released earlier this year. Even though it was released in the middle of winter, it absolutely deserves to have a spot on the spring playlist. Especially since you cannot get any more spring-themed than flowers. “Flowers” is all about moving on from a bad relationship and discovering that there can be so much more to life than being in a relationship. The song contains an empowering message about self-love and growing through difficult trials. If there was a word that defined spring, it would definitely be “growth.” This song shows a hopeful future after getting out of a relationship and encapsulates one side of growth.
All of the Girls You Loved Before — Taylor Swift
Spring music feels hopeful and lively much like Taylor Swift music. Recently, she just released a new song called “All of the Girls You Loved Before” which was an unreleased song from her 2019 album, “Lover.” The song shows yet another side of growth and what it looks like within a relationship. It is a natural part of life for many people to have different relationships, and that might eventually lead to the person you are meant to end up with for life.
Dancing Queen — ABBA
It seems right to end a spring playlist with a classic, and there is no song more fitting than “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. Dance season is right around the corner with formals, weddings and proms. When “Dancing Queen” comes on, it is nearly impossible not to run to the dance floor and jump around to the high-energy piece that ABBA is so well-known for. “Dancing Queen” also has a youthful feel to it, which lines up perfectly with the new life that grows around the world during this season.
Light, fun, peppy music is essential to have in a spring playlist, and while there are so many more choices that fit the spring season, these songs capture the atmosphere spring contains.
