12 of the Best Songs for Spring

April 28, 2020 | Music

After months of winter coats and snowstorms — or, if you live in Southern California, a light jacket and four days of rain — spring is finally arriving. With flowers blooming, birds singing, and new love in the air, the season carries the hope of a new beginning. Here, we’ll take a look at some spring-themed songs to bring in the social distancing sunshine.

“Here Comes the Sun” — The Beatles

This classic Beatles track from “Abbey Road” is a spring favorite, featuring pleasant acoustic guitars and lush layered vocals. This 1969 song perfectly captures the excitement of the end of winter. If it seems like years since it’s been clear, don’t worry. The sun will be shining soon. 

“Butterflies” — Kacey Musgraves

For a mix of pop and country, check out “Butterflies.” If you’re feeling the anticipation of a springtime romance, this might be just the song for you. 

“Am I Wrong” — Anderson .Paak (feat. ScHoolboy Q)

This funky springtime hit features energetic, 80s-style synths and uplifting beats. Anderson .Paak fills the track with catchy raps and melodic vocals. ScHoolboy Q steps in for a verse towards the end, then .Paak brings the song home. 

“Spring Affair” — Donna Summer 

Donna Summer, the queen of disco, touches on the power of springtime love in this dance hit, complete with piano, guitars, and strings. 

“Up With the Birds” — Coldplay

This springtime track has warm, mesmerizing strings to ease the transition out of winter. Soon, happy guitars brighten the sonic landscape, welcoming you into the sunny, Spring weather.

“After the Storm” — Kali Uchis ft. Tyler, The Creator and Bootsy Collins

After the Storm is filled with silky smooth spring vibes, assuring listeners that the sun will come out soon. The lyrics “after the storm is when the flowers bloom” give listeners hope for the future. 

“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” — STRFKR (Cover)

STRFKR’s cover of Cyndi Lauper’s classic track, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” is filled with a rich bass guitar and bright layered vocals. Pure positivity, this track is the perfect way to celebrate the return of spring. 

“It’s Gonna Be Me” — NSYNC

Ok. Maybe it’s ridiculous to include a song just because of internet memes, but we thought we’d do it anyway. The classic picture of Justin Timberlake singing “It’s gonna be May” is just too hard to resist. Make sure to listen to this boy band hit before April ends.


This classic pop song from 2004 is a testament to the power of starting over. Natasha Bedingfield tells listeners that, no matter how difficult winter was, the rest of your story is still unwritten. Today is the perfect day to start over! 

“Brooklyn Baby” — Lana del Rey

Lana’s angelic, airy voice feels just like springtime, especially when she sings about having feathers in her hair while wandering around Brooklyn. You’ll feel just as cool as Lana when you listen to this track to bring in the spring. 

“April in Paris” — Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

This blast from the past is full of spring imagery, including blossoming trees and warm embraces. While the song was recorded over a half-century ago, the message stands the test of time. 

“Spring Vacation” — The Beach Boys

While this song seems undecided as to whether it’s spring or summer, the Beach Boys’ melodic voices are sure to get you in the mood for sunny weather. Good vibrations and guitar solos make this song perfect for the end of winter.
