In no particular order:

Apologize by OneRepublic
This has been playing on the radio a lot lately, and something about it hits that angst spot in me.

Fit But You Know It by The Streets
I giggled hysterically the first time I heard this song, and The Current has been playing it a lot lately.

The Age of Aquarius from the original Broadway recording of Hair
This is the spring song for me. When I still had my '73 Beetle, I would take it out of storage on the first nice day of spring, roll down the windows, and blast the soundtrack to Hair. It made me happy.

The Hissing of Summer Lawns by Joni Mitchell
I love Joni Mitchell, and this song really reminds me of the sway of the world into summer, and all the things I put behind me when I left my husband.

All Along the Watchtower by Bob Dylan, as performed by Jimi Hendrix
The Hendrix version of this song is by far the best, in my opinion. A different version was used in last season's finale to Battlestar Galactica to extremely good effect, and now every time I watch a new episode, I think of it. I love that synergy of music and theater, where the song is used so well that once seen, the song always brings to mind that moment in the movie/show/play.

A-Tisket A-Tasket by Ella Fitzgerald
I'm singing this song in the spring choir concert this year, and I love it. Ella's version is, of course, much better. ;)

King of the Road by Roger Miller
I love this song. It's got a kind of Jack Kerouac feel to it, that urge to roam around without any responsibilities beyond feeding yourself for the day and finding a place to sleep. Very springlike, to me.
