Now that spring is finally here, you can pack away the Snuggie till November. While you're at it, you can toss out all those songs you've been listening to all winter (see you later, Lady Gaga! Bye-bye, Miley!). It's a new season. And it's a time for a new playlist.
Below are a few of our favorite new songs that should keep you going for the next couple months. Buy them, download them, stream them, play them. This is your soundtrack to spring 2010. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
Erykah Badu — "Window Seat"
Smooth, sultry soul from one of the season's best albums.
Drake — "Over"
If Drake's album is as great as his singles, it's gonna be one of the best of the year.
Girls — "End of the World"
Face it: Before the flowers and the sun, there's gotta be a little rain. These hipsters' cool cover of Skeeter Davis' gloomy classic is perfect rainy-day music.
The Hold Steady — "Hurricane J"
After the generally underwhelming Stay Positive, one of our favorite bands gets their mojo back.
LCD Soundsystem — "Drunk Girls"
Guaranteed party-starter. For reals.
The New Pornographers — "Your Hands (Together)"
Someone got a new amp for Christmas.
Titus Andronicus — "Theme From 'Cheers'"
A month after St. Patrick's Day and we're still raising our glasses to this.
