It is that time of year when you are chilling in gardens, heading to warmer climates to sit by some sort of body of water and enjoying long evenings relaxing. I will be doing just that in a month's time, so I thought I would put together my Summer playlist with ten songs that will be part of my own Summer sound. I’m sure it says more about me than it should but here goes......
First up is this cheeky number from one of the best albums this year from Mr George Ezra and his track ‘Paradise’, it has festival summer all over it and is a great way to start of this musical ride.
It is not all easy going, well a little, I have loved this song before they became famous but ‘Renegades’ by X Ambassadors had to have a space in this year’s summer list.
The baseline alone should mean this track should be in every playlist known to man, ‘Figure It Out’ by Royal Blood. It is one to energise you at that morning workout or for that last drink at the bar.
This track has summer written all over it and has been my go to summer track for the last eighteen odd years. ‘Insomnia’ by Faithless, no other words necessary.
For number 8 I have gone with River by Eminem featuring Ed Sheeran, it is a great rap track with a little extra with the guitar and vocals of Ed. It is a strong song and it is great for listening too next to a pool.
Going retro next with AC/DC and ‘Back In Black’, a great rock song and reminds me of summer, if only you could use it as an entrance track as you entered the pool area. I will just need to have it playing in my head when I enter the sun lounger fight.
So go and check out this playlist on Spotify.
