Springtime is here, and what better way to celebrate the season than with some classic Beatles tunes? Here are the top five Beatles songs that capture the lighthearted and joyful spirit of spring:
‘Here Comes the Sun’
This one is an obvious choice. One of the most popular Beatles songs, ‘Here Comes the Sun’ is the perfect ode to springtime. The opening lines, ‘Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say, it's alright,’ perfectly capture the feeling of a new beginning as the winter months fade away. (Alternatively, change the lyrics to have a new kind of Easter hymn: ‘Here comes the son.’)
‘Good Day Sunshine’
Although it's technically been spring in the UK for over a month now, it hasn’t always felt like it. We’re hoping to put the April showers behind us with ‘Good Day Sunshine’. The song's sunny melody and cheerful lyrics about enjoying the simple pleasures in life, such as spending time with friends and soaking up the sun, make it a feel-good classic that's sure to put a smile on your face.
‘All You Need Is Love’
‘All You Need Is Love’ is a timeless classic that captures the essence of springtime, which is all about love, hope, and renewal. The song's uplifting melody and simple yet profound message make it a perfect anthem for the season. Whether you're spending time with loved ones or just enjoying the beauty of nature, ‘All You Need Is Love’ is sure to inspire and uplift you.
‘Penny Lane’ is a nostalgic and upbeat song that captures the carefree spirit of springtime. The song's playful melody and whimsical lyrics about everyday life in a small town make it a charming and delightful tune that's perfect for the season. Whether you're taking a leisurely walk or enjoying a picnic in the park, ‘Penny Lane’ is the perfect soundtrack to your springtime adventures.
‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’
‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ is a dreamy song that captures the ethereal beauty of spring. The song's haunting melody and surreal lyrics about a fantastical world filled with diamonds and tangerine trees make it a perfect ode to the magic and wonder of the season.
