Spring Time and Lookin' Fine...

Wherever you are, it seems like the Spring is really starting to peek it's head around the corner. When I went to school and worked in NYC nothing made me happier than a sunny Spring morning (or afternoon) and walking around with some kickass tunes on my Ipod. It became a tradition of sorts to make a new mix every Spring with whatever music put me in as good of a mood as the weather did. I came up with the lamest of names for them too. "Spring has Sprung," "Spring into Summer," and the one where the title of this entry comes from, "Spring Time and Lookin' Fine in NYC." I know, like I said, they were lame. But I was the only one who saw them and it was all about making me smile, so I'm ok with however embarrassing you may think that is. Here's a sample of what one of the mixes has included in the past:

Breakin' Up - Rilo Kiley
Always Where I Need to Be - The Kooks
I want you back - Jackson
When You Were Young - The Killers
Take What You Take - Lily Allen
Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye
Tears Dry On Their Own - Amy Winehouse
The Tears Of A Clown - Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
Dancing In the Streets - Martha and the Vandellas
Sweet Darlin' - She & Him
The View - Modest Mouse
Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand
I Predict A Riot - Kaiser Chiefs
Kids - MGMT
The Step And The Walk - The Duke Spirit
Uptight (Everythings Alright) - Stevie Wonder
Turn a Square - Shins
Ticket To Ride - The Beatles
Straight Lines - Silverchair
Keep The Car Running - Arcade Fire
Meantime - The Futureheads
Objects Of My Affection - Peter Bjorn and John

What's on there this year? Still a work in progress and the music I've been listening to lately doesn't gel very well together, but here's what I have so far:

Dog Days Are Over - Florence & The Machine
Monster - Lady Gaga
Can't Stop Feeling - Franz Ferdinand
Rolling In the Deep - Adele
Baby You're a Rich Man - The Beatles
West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys
Bang Bang Bang - Mark Ronson And The Business Intl Featuring Q-Tip, MNDR
That's What You Get - Paramore
He's A Rebel - The Crystals
Baby, I Love You - The Ronettes
Big Wave - Jenny & Johnny
Keep The Car Running - Arcade Fire
She's A Rainbow - The Rolling Stones
You Make Loving Fun - Fleetwood Mac

Don't forget about the gift bag giveaway! I'm going to close entries tomorrow at noon. Winner will be announced tomorrow night some time.
