Zack's Spring Mixtape

Spring is finally upon us, especially here in DC. I know spring has arrived because I itch my eyes and blow my nose a good 30 times an hour. But with the bad comes the good: Beautiful blooming trees, smiling faces, and, most importantly, upbeat feel-good music. In part two of our five part series, I (Zack) will share with you my five song Spring Mixtape, featuring new bands and old favorites. With that, here are my choices. The Beatles - Good Day Sunshine (Link removed. You should already have this song) I mean, could you really make a Spring mix without The Beatles. Could you really make any mix without them for that matter? Good Day Sunshine is bright, upbeat, and positive. The Beatles are here to provide your daily dose of happiness, in music form. The Little Ones - Cha Cha Cha These guys have been getting love all over the blogs, and rightfully so. I can't stop listening to these guys. Cha Cha Cha sounds like a cross between The Shins, Fruit Bats, and pure joy. After listening to this song, you'll be begging for more from these guys, so expect an artist profile soon. Architecture in Helsinki - The Owls Go Honestly any song by AiH can work for this, but Adrian mentioned earlier how incredibly cute this song is, and to me it just exudes springiness. Especially the bubble noises and whispers. The Arcade Fire - Haiti I don't particularly think this song is super springy, but it just felt right to put it here. Enjoyable for any season, and it will find it's way into heavy rotation on my iPod this spring. Belle & Sebastian - Another Sunny Day This song alone is a spring mixtape. Anything Belle & Sebastian does can be put here, because of the floating, dreamy vocals and the upbeat nature of Stuart and the gang. Plus the title alone deserves a spot on this mixtape. So there you have it. My five song masterpiece of a Spring Mixtape. Stay tuned for episodes 3-6 of the Spring Mixtape Series, and have a good spring. -Zack
