Quick! How many song titles can you think of with "Spring" in the title or lyrics?
Did you name the popular "Spring is Busting Out All Over"? This fun song from the musical Carousel celebrates the bursting forth of spring "all over the meadow and the hill." Another great song from this musical is "You'll Never Walk Alone."
How about Simon and Garfunkel's "April, Come She Will" with its lovely lyrics, contrasting the gentleness of springtime ("resting in my arms again") to the melancholy of autumn ("a love once old has now grown cold.")
"It Might as Well be Spring" came from the musical State Fair by Rodgers and Hammerstein (even though state fairs were traditionally held in the autumn), but it's been recorded by such diverse singers as Johnny Mathis, Dick Haymes, Sammy Kaye, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra and Andy Williams.
The classic "Some Other Spring" by Billie Holiday, is a sad tribute to lost love, with the singer hoping for another chance for her heart "to awake" and find love.
Elvis Presley's "Spring Fever" was featured in the movie Girl Happy, in which a rock and roll singer is hired to keep his eye on the daughter of a mobster during her Spring Break. Did he keep her out of trouble or did he woo her with lyrics like, "Spring fever, my heart's beating fast; get up, get out, Spring is everywhere"?
Which one of these Spring songs will you be humming this March and April?
