(This is an updated and re-written and edited reposted post from last year, because I am lazy and the weather is awful again) If you are in the same general climate zone as me, you just got hit by a surprisingly large and late snowstorm. Not unheard of late (somewhere we have pictures of me and my sister in snowsuits making a snowman in April), but still kind of late. In a sort of “I thought winter was wrapping up and now it feels like it is just getting started!” way. So I thought it would be a good time to re-post a list of summery songs I put together last year around this time. If you aren’t in the same temperate zone as me, feel free to bookmark this post for the next time you are stuck in the kind of grey days that feel like they will never end.
Pritam is always my go-to when I need cheering up. Somehow his songs are just sunshine and vacation and freedom and long days all condensed into 3 minutes of catchy beats and sing-along-able lyrics.
Of course, there’s also the actual vacation songs, the ones that make you feel like just hoping in a car and escaping all your troubles.
Well, now this is just turning into the Goa post! Let me throw in a sunny vacation to somewhere else, just for variety.
Or a vacation to somewhere in India that isn’t Goa!
A song that’s getting pretty old now, but is still guaranteed to make me smile and feel like I am back in college.
A new one that I know I have posted a few times before. So peppy and pretty and free and sunshine-y!
Speaking of Kerala, “Hosanna”! I know, it’s not in Kerala, it’s in Tamil Nadu, but the character is from Kerala.
Which reminds me of the more recent song, that is all being in love and road trip and sunshine and freedom.
Another road trip movie that ends up surprisingly violent but has a great soundtrack, SSSSHHH! Terrible name, great songs.
And finally, my personal guaranteed anti-depressant song!
