Songs for spring, a Beatles playlist

Songs for spring, a Beatles playlist

April 24, 2024

It’s been a long time coming but spring is finally here! As the first green shoots push through the earth, there's a palpable sense of renewal and rebirth in the air. As spring is a season of awakening, it’s the ideal time to refresh our playlists with tunes that mirror the blossoming world around us. And what better way to soundtrack the springtime than with the timeless music of The Beatles? 

‘Strawberry Fields Forever’

While lyrically more introspective, the lush, dreamlike quality of this song reflects the sometimes surreal beauty of spring's explosion of colour and life. We recommend listening to this track as you enjoy the first fresh strawberries of the season. 

‘I'll Follow the Sun’

This early Beatles track carries the lightness and hopefulness of a new day. The simple, sweet melody is reflective of the seasonal shift towards brighter, longer days. We recommend listening to this tune while you take a blissful stroll through the countryside. 

‘Good Day Sunshine’

This song is imbued with the kind of infectious positivity that makes you want to bask in the warm rays of spring. It's a simple, joyful ode to the beauty of a sunny day. We recommend listening to this in the garden on a sunny Sunday morning. 

‘Blackbird’

With its solo acoustic guitar and tender vocals, ‘Blackbird’  feels like a private serenade to the arrival of spring. The song's message of taking your broken wings and learning to fly is a powerful metaphor for personal growth and renewal. We recommend listening to this while you’re watching the world go by from a cosy cafe nook. 

‘Here Comes the Sun’

This is the quintessential Beatles spring anthem. The uplifting melody and cheerful lyrics are a balm for the soul after the long, cold winter. It's a celebration of the sun's warmth returning to thaw the frozen earth, a metaphor for hope and new beginnings. We recommend this as the soundtrack to all of your spring activities! 

Happy listening, and may your spring be filled with the timeless tunes of The Beatles! If you want even more Beatles in your life, check out our limited edition Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite print.
