IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING – Mixed & Selected by Lexis

Surviving the winter in Montreal is no joke. The toughest part isn’t the cold, the snow or the lack of sunlight. It’s the fact that it’s just so painfully long. Don’t get me wrong, one of the beautiful sides of living in a Northern country is that you get 4 very different seasons: +35 in the summer, -35 in the winter. But why is Winter 5-6 months long?

Every year, starting around mid-March people in Montreal all start going a bit crazy as they anxiously wait for the first signs of Spring.

I wanted to put together a mix with my favourite spring time songs to celebrate that beautiful feeling of opening the windows for the first time in 5 months.
