Every time Spring returns to Chicago, the same song goes through my head: Funeral Face by Suburban Kids with Biblical Names. "...but pretty soon it will happen, the Sun will go murder the snow!" It absolutely suits the aggressive, somewhat crazy joy I feel when it finally warms up around here. I, like others of my kind, want to put on a sundress when the temperature is barely above 40.
I've started making playlists to listen to while I'm running or walking. Here's the start of a geeky, seasonally-appropriate soundtrack.
WARNING: Some of these songs are NOT safe for children!!
Special thanks to reader Phillip S for contributing several tracks. :) Please add more by posting below. I'll update the article with any songs that are particularly poignant. Happy Spring, geeks!
