March is an exciting month because it’s about to be spring and flowers are starting to bloom as the warmth sets in. One way to celebrate this month is with special March tracks, so read on to find what made our list of the 13 best songs about March.
1. Winds Of March – Journey
Journey makes our list with their song Winds Of March, which was released in 1978. This track comes from the album Infinity, and Steve Perry provides some of the most chilling vocals ever on this track. There is a lot of reflective emotion and nostalgia found in the lyrics as he talks about the seasons changing and time going by.
It is a great song to put on when the flowers begin blooming and spring is in the air. Even though it isn’t as popular as other Journey tracks, it’s a lovely song that deserves rotation on every playlist.
2. Ides Of March – Silverstein
On the 2005 album Discovering The Waterfront by Silverstein, there is a song called Ides Of March, and this track is all about an upcoming tragedy happening. A lot of people know Julius Caesar was murdered in 44 B.C. on March 15th, and that is referenced in this song. It is haunting because it’s all about someone who is trying to bargain with death or a person that might be willing to kill, so you may assume it’s a lover who feels jilted or a friend who feels betrayed.
3. March Madness – Future
If you’re into trap music then the track March Madness by Future is the best March song to listen to. It comes from the mixtape 56 Nights, which he released in 2015. This track features a beat that not only booms but will get you energized. He has such a raspy voice that it works with the song where he flaunts his money and ability to buy luxurious items. He also goes into how he struggled before he became famous. He compares all of this to March Madness, and it just matches the hype we feel during the basketball season.
4. March – Deacon Blue

The song speaks of the murder of Julius Caesar and other historical events are also referenced in the track too. The heavy metal aspect of the band, including their instruments, really helps build the haunting and ominous feelings and emotions conveyed in it.

10. The Planters Daughter – Johnny McEvoy
Next, we’re going to talk about The Planters Daughter, which was a 2014 track released by Johnny McEvoy. This is a folk song that talks about the daughter of a rich landowner who has met a man from the working class and is different from her, but she met him in March and fell in love.

From the time she was little, Florence loved listening to music and quickly learned how music can make you happy and feel fulfilled. One of her favorite memories is being in the garage with her dad working on classic cars with the local rock station blaring in the background. Ever since Florence was 3, she loved grunge music and spent hours listening to bands such as Alice in Chains, Mad Season, Soul Asylum, and Soundgarden.
She also enjoys classic rock, modern rock, nu metal, alternative rock, and old 90’s R&B. Her love of music grew as she got older, and used music to help her get through tough times in her life. More often than not, you’ll see Florence with earbuds in while she’s writing, cooking, cleaning, and doing other tasks. She also loves to debate music with her friends such as which lead singer is the best vocalist, the most iconic guitar solos in music, and what songs are really the best of the decade.
