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” is 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?
