Spring, spring - a marvelous thing

Mother Nature put on her finest wardrobe this week in the Northeast with blossoming trees and flowers that soften the landscape...and some lovely warm weather. Sure, as an allergy sufferer, it would be much more ideal to enjoy this beauty around me without watery eyes and running nose, but it's oh-so-worth-it.

So. Just as I get the urge to do some spring cleaning around the old homestead, I also want to do some sprucing up of my iPod. I'm looking for songs of spring.

With the exception of a few - "April in Paris", "Avril 14" and "June is Busting Out All O'er" (look it up, kids) - there aren't too many songs exclusively written about spring. At least, I haven't come across too many.

That's where you come in. What are some songs that remind you of Spring? (and it doesn't have to be specifically about spring itself).

I'll start:
- "Strawberry Swing" - Coldplay
- "Groovin' " - The Young Rascals
- "Elephant Stone (Mint Royale mix)" - Stone Roses

Your turn!

Another Young Rascals song: "It's A Beautiful Morning." Also there are a lot of old ballads that mention the seasons and Spring in particular.

That's a great song, too! Thanks!
