Beautiful Day

Music Monday at Soccer Mom in Denial

I've got a bunch of songs going through my head these days in honor of spring trying so hard to come to this part of the world, in honor of our Selectman candidate winning (read his speech) the most votes, and of walking to church yesterday morning, in spite of the grey skies and chill that still hangs in the air.

The freshness of spring is coming. The freshness of new ideas is coming to our town.

Hello lamppost, what cha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feeling Groovy), Simon and Garfunkel

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Beautiful Day, U2

Sunny Day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet
Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street?

Singing a song? Has something amazing happened that is perfectly captured by a tune? Do share. And share the love back by linking explicitly to me....

Gosh they keep saying that we're going to have Spring around here too, but I haven't seen it yet!

I miss flowers and green grass!

Simon and it!

Congrats! My post Tuesday is going to be about being ACTIVE citizens! And I love both the 59th St. Bridge Song and certainly Beautiful Day by U2. I'm so glad your candidate won!

Hooray for your new selectman! And the 59th Street Bridge Song is a huge favorite around our house with young and old alike -- it's one of the very first songs I taught Will.

These are all fantastic songs; Colin Hay's "Beautiful World" would go well with this trio.

Congrats to your selectman!

(And who are the people who are doing Music Monday and NOT linking back to you? LAME.)
