NEED TO DOWNLOAD: Ring in Spring

99 CENT DJ MC music guy Scott Frampton devises an energetic new playlist to help you greet those crisp spring mornings with a roar

"DON'T STOP THE MUSIC," JAMIE CULLUM. A jazz-piano cover of Rihanna? Oh, yes. To an unbearably sexy, drawn-out tempo, Cullum's silky voice gasps the chorus as the song quickens to its unmistakable rhythm.

"TOO LATE FOR LOVERS," GIN WIGMORE. This New Zealand singer/songwriter's voice is a cross between Duffy and Macy Gray—the passion of this bedraggled ballad will haunt you like last night's kiss.

"AND THE BOYS," ANGUS AND JULIA STONE. Brother Angus' acoustic guitar wraps sister Julia's whispery trill with an unhurried, disarmingly simple melody that will propel you off the couch and into the sun.

"SOLITARY GUN," ROGUE WAVE. When you need a guitar-pop chorus to sweep away the season's in-like-a-lion gloom, Zach Rogue's addictive handclaps and sensitive male vocals are just the ticket.

"AMI O," LIONEL LOUEKE FEATURING ANGELIQUE KIDJO. Even if your only knowledge of African music is The Lion King, you'll readily submit to the jaunty beat of Loueke's jazzy guitar, which playfully punctuates Kidjo's swooping wail.

"CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY," CLASS ACTRESS. Elizabeth Harper's torch-song vocals underscored by effervescent synths make this '80s electro-pop catchier than an office cold.
