Oh I love a meme, I do, especially if it is about something I love such as music.
The lovely Rachel at Mummyglitzer has tagged me in this Meme, to write an ultimate summer driving playlist. So without further ado, put on your sunnies, wind down the window and blare these tuuuuunes out!
Ps. I have eclectic taste in music so be warned!
Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist
1. Love Shack B52’s – this song always reminds me of going to the beach with my granddad when I was younger and we used to stay with them in the Summer holidays. In later years this song reminds me of summer nights going to a 80s/90s club night aptly entitled ‘Love Shack’…the least said about that place, the better!
2. Shiny Happy People – REM- you can not fail to smile and sing this song out, and when it’s sunny it sounds even better.
3. Champagne Supernova – Oasis – chilling out in the sunshine, festivals, fields, cider….I think this song is lush, as we say down here in the south-west.
4. The Killers – Mr Brightside – it is pretty much obligatory to sing this song as loud as you can, the whole way through. Can be embarrassing at traffic lights….
5. Stereophonics – Have a Nice Day – ah I love this song. It’s a good song to drive to. It definitely has a summery, sunny, happy feel to it.
6. Summertime – Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince – this has to be one of the most obvious, but it’s an oldie and a goodie!
7. ATB ( 9pm Til I Come) – a little recognition to my dance/club days….always have loved this song, and I think it’s a very summery song too.
8. Sweetness – Michelle Gayle – Yes, her from Eastenders! This is a good song, which was probably as well, as it was her only success.
9. Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road – Ultimate driving song for driving with the windows down and singing at the top of your lungs
10. Bon Jovi – Living on a Prayer – a hark back to the Pav Nightclub circa 2003. Another sing your heart out tune!
11. Brian Adams – Summer of ’69 – Come on, we all know the words!
12. Wham! Club Tropicana – oh I just want to be sipping a cocktail by the pool when I sing this song. Or rather, sipping a diet coke as I crawl down the M5!
13. Brian Adams – Everything I Do – OK another Brian Adams song, but it was number 1 for 15 weeks over one hot summer in my childhood – it had to be in this list!
14. Sophie Ellis Bexter and Groovejet – If This Aint Love – This reminds me of finishing my exams. Love the music in this one.
15. For my final choice, I choose Daft Punk, Da Punk. My most favourite song ever. This is my ultimate driving song no matter what the weather, and the video is pretty crazy too!
Well, I could go on and on. But here are my top 15 tunes for your Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist!
