Mixtape Monday: First Day of Spring

<span class=

Spring is officially here and the 70 degree weather only confirms it.
Here is a playlist of songs inspired by Japan, France, and love - all things I associate with Spring:

1. Tokyo - The Books (I relate Japan with spring because of cherry blossom trees, so I like to listen to lots of Japanese-inspired songs during this season. Also, I've been thinking about Japan a lot lately because of the horrific events that have taken place.)
2. Life in Technicolor - Coldplay (makes me think feel like in walking downtown Tokyo)
3. Waterparker - Botany
4. Contact High - Architecture in Helsinki
5. Always Everything - Sin Fang (Seabear side project, new love)
6. Parachute - Shugo Tokumaru
7. Hoppipolla - Sigur Ros (ambient Icelandic music that grows bigger, like flowers)
8. The First Day of Spring - Noah and the Whale (Another one that builds and gives me goosebumps. Spring is about new beginnings and expanding your horizons.)
9. Silly Love Songs - Glee Cast (happy, fun, light)
10. A Little Love - Meaghan Smith
11. Quelqu'un m'a dit - Carla Bruni ( I also associate French music with Spring. Paris in the springtime is such a cliched, but wonderful thought...and thats when I first went to France.)
12. Mushabloom - Feist
13. Printemps - Coeur de Pirate

Happy Spring!


  1. I am loving Shugo Tokumaru, too! They sound like pure happiness and they do a lot of animated videos, which I love.

  2. I loveeee Noah and the whale' "shape of my heart" is one of my favorite music videos! Can I ask a favor of you?? I loved your old blog modern marie. And I loved the teen vouge-esque sytle. I bought a dress for prom but I dont know how to style it so that I feel fun, cute, unique and young! So do you think you could help me style it??? Here is a link to the dress I bought...

  3. Hoppipolla is THE spring song. For sure. ♥

  4. i love that noah & the whale song! so beautiful. i would love a whole mix of french pop songs -- i love that carla bruni song so much!

  5. Hey Allie!
    Thanks for reading Modern Marie and now Pamplemousse!
    i love the dress you got - i would definitely play up the grecian look with patenet leather nude pumps, grecian gold cuffs and your hair like this:,r:15,s:24&biw=1129&bih=593
    Coral lipstick to match the dress would look wonderful too!
    hope this helps!

  6. wonderful list, as always! do you know pomplamousse? every time I stop by your blog I think about them! Look them up on youtube if you don't, they do really enjoyable covers of mainstream songs.
