Think about the best part of spring. Is it the flowers blooming? Baking? Strolling in the warm breeze? Opening your windows? Prom season? Wedding season? Pastel colors? No matter what you’re thinking of, we’ve rounded up 20 songs that give the energy of all the above!
1.) “ceilings” – Lizzy McAlpine
As per TikTok, if you’re planning to put on a dress and dramatically run through a field any time soon… this one is for you. Hopefully, prom season keeps this trend going so we get to see all the beautiful dresses!
2.) “Silk Chiffon” – MUNA & Phoebe Bridgers
Nothing feels more like a warm spring day than this song. Break out your mini skirt and rollerblades ASAP!
3.) “Always, Joni” – Trousdale
Trousdale’s harmonies are absolutely angelic and make the perfect soundtrack for a windows-down drive. Think of a The Perks of Being a Wallflower tunnel moment, but with this song.
4.) “Butterfly” – Demi Lovato
When it comes to bridges that make you want to scream at the top of your lungs, this song is purely excellent. Aside from the whole butterfly imagery and the fact that this album was a spring must-have a couple of years ago, Demi’s soft tone is completely enchanting.
5.) “Hey Stephen” – Taylor Swift
Arguably one of the cutest songs that country Taylor ever gave us. Picnic date anyone?
6.) “Spring Day” – BTS
It’s a little on the nose, but entirely necessary to include. This BTS classic feels like flower petals are raining down on you when you listen. It’s one of their most beautiful songs, lyrically and sonically, and it quite literally feels like a spring day.
7.) “Flowers On The Floor” – LANY
LANY are basically masters at creating the springiest songs ever. Something about their sound feels straight out of a coming-of-age movie. With their signature nostalgic bounciness, they never fail to bring us a warm feeling all year round.
8.) “Personal Cathedrals” – Aly & AJ
We’re ready to frolic around a meadow because Aly & AJ are absolutely “spinnin’ us all around” with this one. It’s like the feeling of your hair blowing in a balmy wind turned into a song.
9.) “My! My! My!” – Troye Sivan
Troye is the definition of the word “bloom.” His ability to harness a euphoric feeling into music is unmatched and makes for the perfect outdoor dance anthem!
10.) “Wild Heart” – Bleachers
Does the Ferris wheel scene from Love, Simon ring a bell? This song became the theme song of that movie and in turn, became one of our spring go-tos. We’re a sucker for a Nick Robinson rom-com!
11.) “Fly With Me” – Jonas Brothers
It may be an old Jonas Brothers song, but it definitely has the potential to be a totally romantic wedding song! These lyrics are so sweet and remain some of their best to this day.
12.) “Daylight” – Harry Styles
Nothing says spring like bluebirds and honey. It’s easy to romanticize the birds chirping outside your kitchen window while you bake when Harry is playing.
13.) “California Sun” – Corey Harper
Just like he says, “You remind me of the California sun,” this song reminds us of the California sun. It feels just like a spring beach day.
14.) “Green Light” – Lorde
Lorde walked so Lizzy McAlpine could run. If the “ceilings” TikTok trend was happening in 2017, it would be to this song. It’s cinematic, bright, and impossible not to have you picturing yourself running and twirling through a sunset.
15.) “Girls Make Me Wanna Die” – The Aces
We’ve found the ultimate song for dancing around the house and spring cleaning “on a beautiful Sunday.”
16.) “PART OF YOU” – 19&YOU & Carlie Hanson
If a song was to have a guitar riff that feels exactly like a sunny day, this one takes the cake.
17.) “Oh shit… are we in love?” – Valley
Upbeat and catchy? Check. Love song? Check. Good for a spring road trip? Check.
18.) “Time After Time (Live at Abbey Road Studios)” – Sam Smith
“Time After Time” is one of the greatest slow dance anthems of all time. Somehow, Sam managed to make us love it even more. It’s giving climactic prom scene in a movie.
19.) “Little Moth” – Chloe Moriondo
Pinterest called. It wants its “painting in a breezy sunroom with paint-stained overalls” aesthetic back! This is the ultimate song for a chill spring day spent at home.
20.) “Want You Back” – 5 Seconds of Summer
The beginning of spring 5 years ago saw 5sos make a long-awaited comeback with this classic. We haven’t stopped blasting it every season since!
