Spring Playlist | 2015

Some tunes for Spring

Springtime in Los Angeles doesn’t come with the hope and promise of warmer weather, since it’s been a steady 70-85 degrees, it comes with the promise of more enjoyable walks. Let me put it this way, it’s like not having enough time to give your kitchen a thorough cleaning, so you put some things away and spray lavender Febreeze. The sidewalks are still covered in God knows what and the lingering scent of carbon emissions won’t go away until we’re all driving Teslas, yet the spring flowers offer a pleasant, yet temporary, relief with their orange and jasmine aromas. It really is nice.

To illustrate, “King Obama” is at it again with his tyrannical executive orders. The damage this time? The federal government must cut emissions 40% by 2025. It’s like the guy wants kids to be asthma-free. Doesn’t he know it builds character? Okay, that’s as political as I’ll get, since this is a Spring Playlist. It’s pretty eclectic, so hopefully you’ll find at least one tune to enjoy.
