Temperatures over 60 mean only two things: day drinking and country music. If you think differently, you’re wrong. You can’t go wrong with a classic like Kenny Chesney’s “She’s Got It All” to get you in the mood for some BBQ and outdoor activities.

The memory of sitting in Central Park the summer after freshman year with friends and a guitar, harmonizing to Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” is enough to make it the perfect nice weather, feel-good song. One listen and you’ll be prancing around like me.

Listening to Sheryl Crow’s “Soak Up The Sun” always puts me in a better mood. If it’s gross out- side, this song makes me forget that. When it’s a beauitful spring day, though, it makes me want to go out and soak up the sun!

All of the songs in Simon & Garfunkel’s early catalog are on my spring playlist, but I’m a walk- ing joke and a cliché and have to go with “April Come She Will.” It’s the most beautifully sad song I know, but every April 1 when I set it as my alarm, I can’t help but be happy. Then my sea- sonal allergies kick in.

Death Cab For Cutie’s song “Code And Keys jumps right into the first verse with sunny-day, quad-chillin’ chord-strumming and sweet harmo- ny-signing. It inspires me to seize the day, carpe diem dawgs. Ben Gibbard’s reverberating voice reminds me that it’s time to pack my blanket and sunnies away and head off to class.
