Daylight savings time is awesome. Longer days are just more fun. And who doesn’t love being able to grill delicious meats after 7:00 with ample natural light? Alas, there are whispers of phasing out this much beloved and time honored tradition. There is no doubt a conspiracy between lobbyists in Arizona and Hawaii to impose their way of life on the rest of these United States.
In honor of what may soon become a thing of the past, here are some songs from the past and present to accompany your daydreams about daylight savings joy.
Belle & Sebastian – “Song for Sunshine”
The Velvet Underground – “Sunday Morning”
XTC – “Senses Working Overtime”
Yo La Tengo – “Periodically Double or Triple”
Wye Oak – “Holy Holy”
REM – “So. Central Rain”
Wilco – “I Might”
Television – “See No Evil”
Weezer – “Buddy Holly”
The Cars – “Just What I Needed”
