Spring is officially in full swing! Wrapping in mid-June, there are three months to enjoy everything spring-related: fun in the sun, walks in the park, blossoming flowers, ice cream and more.

There’s no denying that most of the things associated with the season are bright and happy. Some Latin artists, however, have linked spring to heartbreaks and unrequited love.

Marco Antonio Solis and Yuri are some artists who have blessed their songs with the word “Primavera” (the Spanish word for spring), but instead of singing about the vibrant season, they are pouring their hearts out in sentimental love lyrics.

Listen to them below.

Marco Antonio Solis - “Donde Estara mi Primavera”

Released in 2002 as part of his studio album Más de Mi Alma, Marco Antonio Solis’ “¿Donde Estará mi Primavera?” (Where is my Spring?) has become a timeless song for all people who can’t get over that special someone. The Mexican singer opens up about his long-lost love, emphasizing that his spring is dark and gloomy amidst their farewell.

Yuri - “Maldita Primavera”

Yuri released her version of "Maledetta Primavera" by the Italian singer Loretta Goggi in the ‘80s, becoming one of her greatest hits. “Maldita Primavera,” which is translated to “Damn Spring,” is a song about a woman who is haunted by a previous heartbreak. She compares it to spring because it was a romance that ended quickly.

Los Inquietos - “Primavera Azul”

In 2001, Los Inquietos released “Primavera Azul,” a heartfelt vallenato song about a man who’s willing to do it all to win over the girl of his dreams. The song, which was later released in bachata by Hector “El Torito” Acosta, compares the girl to a blue spring, who brings him nothing but light to his heart.

Laura Pausini with James Blunt - “Primavera Anticipada [It Is My Song]”

With lyrics such as “All my hopes and my fears in this moment are clear. You are the one. My moon, my stars, my sun,” James Blunt and Laura Pausini teamed up to sing about a sincere king of love in “Primavera Anticipada.”
