I’m overdue to post another of my inspirational playlists. Since Spring has sprung, here are five musical reminders of all the possibilities that greet us every day in this season of growth and sunshine.
1. Mowgli’s, “I’m Good”
If beachy images and poppy melody don’t put a spring in your step (and mood), I don’t know what will.
2. Birdy, “Wake Me Up”
This haunting cover of the Avicii smash is a beautiful reminder that “life is a game meant for everyone and love is the prize.”
3. Dawes “Things Happen”
The renewal we see all around us in Spring is more than enough evidence that now is the perfect time to celebrate the perfect order of how life unfolds. “Let’s make a list of all the things the world has put you through. Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re no longer speaking to…”
4. Aqualung, “Brighter Than Sunshine”
The warmth of love is in the air, in Spring, and always.
5. James Blunt “Heart to Heart”
Even when we cannot see the sun, know that you “shine even on a rainy day … If you need a hand to hold, you should know we see eye to eye, heart to heart.”
