Song of the Day: Ya Hey by Vampire Weekend

Sometime around March of last year this song made it onto a playlist I made myself for the beginning of spring. I was born in the winter but I have a sort of love affair with spring that I can't deny. Every year when spring comes around I am suddenly filled with this bordering-on-obnxious exuberance about life and possibility and I ooze more joy than any other time of year. Even Christmas, and I LOVE Christmas.

The point is: because of that one playlist, this song (which is perfect with or without any springtime associations) now brings with it the glee that usually is reserved for springtime. Needless to say, it's one of my favorites.
