I'm so egg-cited: Top 5 Easter Songs

Happy Easter one and all. As the egg-citing holiday befalls us once again, we thought we'd get the party started early. OK, although not as famed as Christmas for its classic tunes, we thought we'd be creative and pick five tracks to help you celebrate the holiday nonetheless. 

Rabbit - Chas n' Dave

Although it's not massively likely Chas n' Dave were talking about Easter bunnies in their 1981 hit Rabbit, we thought they'd love to be included in our list anyway. You're welcome, Chas n' Dave.

Of course, the London pair were actually using Cockney rhyming slang - "to rabbit" - comes from  "rabbit and pork" meaning "talk".

The song was re-issued in 2013 as part of Record Store Day on rabbit-shaped vinyl.

Easter - Marillion 

You may be familiar with the 80s sensations Marillion for their classic hit Kayleigh. However, the neo-rockers also enjoyed celebrating the Easter hols, with a track very subtly called Easter.

The song is a fan favourite, and inspired by the poem Easter, 1916 by W. B. Yeats.

Spring - Two Door Cinema Club

The Northern Irish band Two Door Cinema Club are known for their breezy indie pop, so only fitting they sing about the breeziest season too.

Taken from second album Beacon, the band cited Spring as being the song that directs the new sound they wanted to achieve. 

 

Who's That Chick? - Rihanna ft. David Guetta

We are almost entirely, unequivocally sure that Rihanna and David Guetta's collaboration was entirely to do with Easter's love of baby chickens.

We are definitely, definitely, 100% sure. 

Sweet Like Chocolate - Shanks & Bigfoot

How dare you think of Shanks & Bigfoot as one hit wonders. They did all those other songs probably. 

Nonetheless, Easter means different things for different people - whilst some carry it as a religious holiday, others are more religious about the chocolate side of things. 

This song is the perfect way to enjoy stuffing your face, as well as embarking on some 90s disco action. 

Happy holidays everyone!
