The weather is finally staying warm and I’m pretty confident that I can retire my bulky winter wear for the long run. Spring, I’ve missed you. The cherry blossoms are beginning to open, which is breathtaking. I walk under a row of them every morning. It’s utterly dreamy.
It’s usually around this time when my mind starts flooding with images of dainty dresses and afternoons in the park. I also start compiling warm weather appropriate playlists. Of late, I’ve been infatuated with Kodaline, but Vampire Weekend will always hold a special place in my heart. Last summer was all about Of Monsters and Men and Alt-J. The summer before that? The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons.
Songs never ever get old for me, so I continually put them on rotation. Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been living my life to these past few weeks.
- Young the Giant – God Made Man
- Andrew Bird – Spare-Ohs
- Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up
- Blind Pilot – I Buried a Bone
- Fleet Foxes – Lorelai
- Jinja Safari – Mud
- Kodaline – High Hopes
- Vampire Weekend – Step
- Johnny Flynn – The Box
If a song is nostalgic or can conjure up images of endless summer days, I’m all over it.
