Spring Fling – A Playlist For Frisky, Frolicsome Fun

Welcome to the heart of Spring and Taurus Season! It’s rare that these playlists have a simple objective these days. This one, however, sort of arrived out of my own aroused interest in Springtime.

11354451656_f74bf3d743_zReady to hit the garden, plow some fields and plant some seeds, I thought of some of the most fun, coy and happy Girl Group songs I’ve enjoyed over the years. Informed by the Carolina Beach Music aesthetic, and our approaching national vacation season soon to be underway, there’s a heavy bit of froth that might get you on your feet.

Of course, with me, there’s always the nuances and flipsides to the upbeat, so there’s plenty of slow jams to sit back and reflect with as well. So get your sunglasses, look for eye-candy, and think of who’ll you’ll flirt with over these 34 forgotten classics.
