Is their any better feeling than we get from dancing around in our underpants to our favorite song? The answer is no. And it is now, in the final dregs of winter, that we need our favorite tunes and our sexy underthings more than ever. Look below for a handful of songs that are guaranteed to put the spring back into your step.
1. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
Fair warning: You are going to want to resist the pull of this song, but 10 seconds into its catchy rhythm, and you will have a weasely little smile on your face and a bounce in your step. This song is pure, unadulterated joy, served up just for your wintertime blues. Don’t say no to a gift like this. Just dance.
2. “Let’s Go Surfing” by The Drums
This is the beachiest song in the world. We dare you not to imagine the ocean and feel the sun on your back while you listen to it. WE DARE YOU.
3. “Take it Easy” by Surfer Blood
One of the best parts of summertime is driving with your windows down, and this song is absolutely perfect for that. Let it be your light at the end of this blustery, white tunnel. Wait just a few more months, and you can play it as many times as you want and as loudly as you please, as you drive through town.
4. “Middle of June” by Noah Gundersen
Listening to this song will remind you of the sappy parts of summer, like fireflies and sitting next to a lake on a muggy night with a crush. These sorts of squiggly, blush-worthy feelings are exactly the promise we need in order to make it to through February and, let’s face it, most of March.
5. “Once in a Great While” by Nathaniel Rateliff
This song is for those who prefer to become one with their winter misery, rather than casting it aside. This is a lovely song that will remind you that sometimes it is nice to get warmed up in front of a fire and contemplate the somberness being offered to you from the great snowy spirit in the sky.
