1.) “Ultimately” by khai dreams: The weather is perfect for a day alone; the soft sunlight shines directly onto your body and blesses you with a sense of serenity and warmth. The field is completely empty with not a soul in sight; it is only populated with the thousands of wildflowers surrounding you. You stay in the meadow for hours, enjoying nothing but the sun, breeze, flowers, and yourself.

2.) “Me Gustas Tu” by GFRIEND: It’s a normal school day, yet, there’s never truly a “normal”. Sure there’s the daily class schedule and same routine, yet each day seems so… different to you. Whether it be with your friends or in class, everyday holds its own fond memory in your heart that you know you’ll think about every now and then like old, forgotten journal you’ve found again.

3.) “Purple Rain” by Prince: It’s late at night. The rain is pouring as if the clouds were sympathetic towards you getting your heart broken by your best friend. Even though you are trying your best to clear your head of your rejection, the heaviness of it still lingers in your mind and plagues your heart. The consonance between this classic 80’s hit and the bitter-sweetness of spring rain gives you solace and a bit of peace. Purple rain, purple rain, you hear. I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain. “Lips on Lips” by Tiffany Young: FINALLY! SPRING BREAK! You’ve been waiting months for this day to come. You’ve already packed for the spring vacation you and your friends have been planning for weeks: a trip to Catalina Island. With shining, turquoise blue waters coupled with perfect temperatures to go snorkeling, looking out at the sea aboard the Catalina Express feels like a dream you never thought would come true. Your excitement accumulates as each passing second goes by until you finally see the shoreline in the distance!

4.) “dlwlrma” by IU: It’s a fantastic day! Rather than the typical groans and constant abuse of the snooze button, you feel energized and ready to make the most out of your day. With the sun shining, the birds singing, and the flowers blooming, talking a walk through town and seeing the smiling faces of passing strangers makes you feel infectiously happy. While walking with a pep in your step, the first day of spring feels like the best day ever.

6.) raindrops (an angel cried) by Ariana Grande: Waking up from a well-rested sleep, the first ray of light shines through your curtains and onto your drowsy eyes. Spring has started, and it simply feels magical.
