spring is (sort of) in the air

It’s March 1st, the sun has actually been out the last couple of days, you can almost see the sidewalks underneath the large patches of ice, and maybe — just maybe — spring is (sort of) on its way to Canton, NY.

I know you’re all shocked. Me, too.

It is no surprise to anyone who has had more than a five minute conversation with me that I am a huge music fan. I’m the kind of music listener who finds something, falls in love with it, and listens to it on repeat for a relatively extended period of time. The way I listen to music means that certain songs or albums will always have an underlying connotation to them, depending on when I first listened or what was going on in my life when I first heard it.

For that reason, there is one song that will always make me thing of spring and sunshine, no matter when I listen to it, just because I listened to it and the album it’s on endlessly during tennis season of my senior year of high school when I was injured and off the court.

The Civil Wars’ “Tip of My Tongue”┬áis just one song that always reminds me of spring, so I’ve been listening to it while I do my homework today, in honor of March 1st and the sun finally deciding to exist.

What’s your feel-good springtime song? Any particular reason why?
