Our audio excerpt starts after a piano introduction and goes through the entire opening melody.
This recording shows the ways in which the song can be transformed by the groove behind it; the first A is rubato and free, but in the B section the rhythm section moves into a straight-eighths ballad feel, which lends a completely different feeling to the piece. This adaptability, combined with the loveliness of the melody and harmony on its own, makes it a great choice for any singer.
On the recording, Meredith sings an entirely new and different melody on the out chorus, a delight for fans and other vocalists.
For those who have a higher range than Meredith's low contralto, we also offer this song in D-flat, which highlights a mezzo-soprano range.
Lyric Description: Meredith's wistful lyric blames her romantic feelings on the charm and allure of spring.
