16 Songs About Spring


“Thus came the lovely spring with a rush of blossoms and music, Flooding the earth with flowers, and the air with melodies vernal.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Ah, Spring… the beautiful time of year when everything comes back to life, when flowers begin blooming and trees start sprouting new leaves. It’s the time of year for singing in the rain, dancing in puddles, and catching raindrops on your tongue. It’s the time of year that makes you want to run around outside and soak up the sunshine after being cooped inside all winter. It’s the time of year that just begs you to roll the windows down in your car, turn the stereo up, and sing at the top of your lungs. 

So if a little carpool karaoke sounds like fun today, we think our 16 Songs About Spring might be the perfect place to start. We hope they put a little extra “spring” in your step today!
