Sunday, March 20th marks the first day of spring in 2022, and the prospect of warmer weather, vibrant flowers, and new beginnings draws closer. We have compiled ten fresh songs about spring to celebrate the season.
1. “Spring Break-Up" by Luke Bryan (2013)
Bryan released a series of four Spring Break-themed EPs, and “Spring Break-Up" was on Spring Break 4...Suntan City. The song details a typical fast-ending love on the beach during spring break.

This intriguing love song depicts the story of how Lynn is afraid to tell her current lover that she has fallen for someone new.
3. “When it’s Springtime in Alaska (It’s Forty Below)” by Johnny Horton (1959)
The shocking twist at the end when Horton reveals that the girl he has fallen in love with is a bride-to-be makes this title of this rockabilly tune even more amusing.
4. “Spring” by Tanya Tucker (1977)
This heart-wrenching song follows the story of a woman that names her child “Spring.”
5. “(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden” by Lynn Anderson (1970)

There's gotta be a little rain sometime” help listeners picture a spring relationship. This song was covered later on by Martina McBride.
