Songs for a spring-day - UK vs. Germany
Today, folks, I'd like to present you two songs, which both are perfect lifting up your mood on a sunny spring-day like today (we have 20 degrees! 20 degrees! In March!!). These two songs belong to my absolute favourits, but still, I think the best season their tunes "fit" in is Spring. So which are those?
The first one should be known to most of you. It's Whippin Piccadilly Tonight performed by the UK-band Gomez. Back in 1998/1999 this piece was on top the Alternative Charts, and I think it also appeared in the popular Charts as well. Anyway, it's an activating fresh tune and gives us a very true statement for every nice spring-day: "There's not enough hours in our day." - Oh, how right they are....
Well, secondly, we have "Gekommen um zu bleiben" by the German band Wir Sind Helden ("We are heroes"). This song also sounds very unique and definitely outstanding. And, there is also a very true phrase for a spring-day in it. "Gekommen um zu bleiben" means "We've come to stay" or "It has come to stay" - so, in case of the sunny weather, the birds, the flowers and the butterflies we of cause hope that spring's here to stay, right?
Well, you may now decide by yourself, which one makes the perfect background-tune for your perfect spring-day. Enjoy!
PS: Sorry, this is not the original version of the musicvideo… this is the ”dance”version – the band is the right one though ;)
