You missed a good one though, "Dear Prudence" was written in May 1968, "The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful and so are you".

Then there's "Silent Spring" Radiohead

"The Opening Act Of Spring" Frank Turner (my son the recording engineer loves his stuff)

"Spring Sprang Spring" from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Hey, you probably can do a whole 'nother spring theme show or two from that massive collection.

I'm skittish about using Beatles after what happened recently....otherwise I'd also have used "Here Comes the Sun". But thanks for the suggestions!

…and that is saying something. Great to hear stuff I don't know about and have never heard. As well as the stuff I know really well.

Picking songs as they "come to you" organically. That's the best way!
