Every Autumn, I think ‘This is my favourite season’, but then when summer comes round, I change my mind! If you need a little inspiration, here’s my current summer playlist from Spotify – a selection of breezy, sunny tunes to brighten up your working day.
There’s something so delightful about those lazy evenings with a chilled white wine, smelling the fragrant lemon grass and mint in the herb garden and planning outdoorsy adventures like trips to the beach, hikes up hills and camping under the stars.
With that in mind, I’m sharing my current summer playlist from Spotify – a selection of summery little tunes to brighten your day.
Canteloupe Island by Garota De Rio – perfect ambient swing jazz with a tropical twist
Tandem by Vanessa Paradis – such an iconic lady and such a stylish song!
Panama by Van Halen – a classic 80s rock anthem made for summer evening drives
After You’ve Gone by Stochelo Rosenberg – a delightful little piece of whimsical gypsy jazz for sunny days
Could You Be Loved by Bob Marley & The Wailers – always reminds me of the 2002 surf film Blue Crush, which makes me want to go to the beach *immediately*
Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty – about 10 years ago, my sister and I visited the Pyramids in the searing heat of August – not our best idea! To cool down, we took a seat at a little café overlooking the Sphynx and sipped chilled Lipton Lemon Tea. This song was playing in the background and I’ll always remember it as a perfect scene…
Keep On Movin’ by Soul II Soul – beautiful background music and a good mantra for any time of year!
A Lover’s Holiday by Change (Jim Burgess Mix) – just the most impossibly upbeat funky tune; I could listen to it forever!
Enjoy your summer!
