Spring Fever…

Hello World, 

Today is the first day of spring! Hallelujah! It’s been a hard winter for most of the United States with all of the snow…Even the A had its fair share of snow this year! But all of that is over for 2011…At least I think so, but God is in charge…It’s time to thoroughly clean my house and get cotton candy polish painted on my toes. And it’s time to break out the happy music! So without further ado, I will post my Top 10 Songs to get me in the mood for spring! (In no particular order) And please let me know what music gets you in the mood for my second favorite season of the year! (Of course, summer is my absolute fave..how could it be any different for someone with Jamaican heritage?)

  1. “I Got A Man”  – Positive K. This flirty song gets me in the mood to get myself cute in the spring because summer is coming…And this song is one of the hip hop classics that did not need cursing & misogyny to get air play…
  2. “Happy Feelings” – Maze. This is the kind of song that makes you turn your windows down in your car and take in all of the sounds, smells & sights of spring…
  3. “You Brought The Sunshine” – The Clark Sisters. When you are getting ready for church in the spring, this is a perfect song to groove to…
  4. “Let’s Groove” – Earth, Wind & Fire. Another song to groove to in the car!
  5. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – Nirvana. This is a great song to run to…Now that it is officially spring, I have no more excuses to get out there and pound the pavement! Hopefully, I will make it in the Peachtree Road Race since the powers that be have instituted a lottery system for the first time…
  6. “Lovely Day” – Bill Withers. This song always makes me feel better. It’s great for dancing to when you’re alone in your bedroom 🙂 And a great cool down song after an intense workout!
  7. “What a Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong. No explanation needed. Sheer perfection!
  8. “Could You Be Loved” – Bob Marley. I just feel the sun on my back whenever I hear this song! I need to get back to Jamaica!!!
  9. “Everything is Everything” – Lauryn Hill. After winter, must come spring! YES!
  10. “Girls Just Want To Have Fun- Cyndi Lauper. A great song any time of the year, but particularly in spring when everything is coming to life again!

What’s your favorite song or songs to get you in the mood for spring?

Any thoughts?

  1. Hey Jackie,
    I thought about “On the Road Again”, by Willie Nelson. I’m getting the urge to take off in our motor home. It’s a wonderful way to travel with my sweetie and our two puppies. My work as a life coach is portable so I can ‘coach from the coach’! So, I can’t wait to get on the road again,
