Summer is coming and for many it’s already here! While in the UK we do get some really incredible weather in the summertime, it’s not always a guarantee so we have to try and create the atmosphere ourselves. What better way to do it than with a solid playlist full of anthems that would perfectly decorate the airwaves at an overcast barbecue or if you’re one of the lucky, accompany you on a sun scorched road trip through the wilds.
I’ve pulled this playlist together with the aim of taking it home with me in August for some long summer drives and beach walks, wind in my hair on my head, sand between my toes, and freckles speckled all over any exposed bit of pasty Hebridean skin. I say pasty, I should say porcelain. There are plenty of wonderful places to visit where I’m from, amazing open spaces draped in rich green grass, vibrant turquoise water and golden sands. Sometimes it can feel like you’re abroad, others not so much. I’ll be giving some coverage of my time there and a low down on what it’s all about, in August, but until then you’ll just have to take my word for it (the image at the top of this post is evidence enough!).
I’ve ordered this playlist in a specific order, from indie beats, through hip hop to pop and dance anthems. So play the damn thing already and enjoy 2 hours of feel good musical moments.
I ♥ SUMMER
