A playlist for Easter break

Despite the cold weather, there's the chance of a few days off for Easter and the sun is shining here and there, and I feel the oncoming rush of spring. I want some stimulating, uplifting tunes.

Here's my suggestion of ten tracks to put in the car and hit the road for the day, with a picnic, a pair of shades and a blanket.

Hey! Make some extra suggestions and drop me a line...

  • Come Go With Me - The Staple Singers
  • This Charming Man - The Smiths
  • Mr. Wendal - Arrested Development
  • Free Falling - Tom Petty
  • Move On Up - Curtis Mayfield (above, right)
  • 1-2-3-4 - Feist
  • Helplessly Hoping - Crosby Stills & Nash
  • Waiting in Vain - Bob Marley
  • Easy - The Commodores
  • My Baby Just Cares for Me - Nina Simone
