Spring Has Sprung Despite the Rain

Spring Has Sprung Despite the Rain

March 27th, 2009 by Sean Phipps in Chattnow Music

Well, this week's MUSICcast was supposed to be a celebration of Spring with sunshine, puppies (?), love and things green. Unfortunately, the dark clouds moved in mid-week and put a damper on what was, up to that point, a beautiful first few days of Spring. Despite the weather, I'd still like to share with you some of favorite "springy" songs. What makes a good Spring song? Well, I think these songs should have a breeeezzzy feel to them, as if time is passing very slowly and nothing really matters except the present. The songs on this podcast are some of my favorites.
