Songs about the Sun

I’m not sure how it’s been in the rest of the world, but in the last week or so Glasgow has been hit by the most shockingly beautiful weather. Glorious sunshine, temperatures in the high teens and low 20s, minimal rain… it may seem like a bit of an overreaction but trust me, having weather like this for more than two or three consecutive days when you live in Scotland is 100% a cause for rejoicing! 


So to celebrate my love of the sun and all things summer (and to send across a few of my positive vibes now that I only have one exam to go - yay!), I thought I’d do a little playlist post of songs about the sun…

Ain't No Sunshine
Bill Withers

Chasing The Sun
The Wanted

Pocketful Of Sunshine
Natasha Bedingfield

I first heard this song in the movie Easy A - it's an absolutely hilarious scene and well worth a watch...

Sun Comes Up
Rudimental (feat. James Arthur)

KYLE (feat. Miguel)

This was at the request of my brother who really likes KYLE's music (I'd never have heard of it otherwise but it's a fab chilled out song).

The Sun Always Shines On TV

As an oboist, I absolutely love the mini oboe solo in the opening of this song...

Why Does The Sun Shine?
They Might Be Giants

I have so many childhood memories of this song - it's brilliant if you even slightly enjoy science!

Another Day Of Sun
La La Land Cast

This musical is such a modern classic - all the shots are gorgeous and the whole soundtrack is fab so definitely watch if you haven't already!

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
George Michael & Elton John

Invisible Sun
The Police

Two Door Cinema Club

Dario G

TIEKS (feat. Dan Harkna)

Walking On Sunshine
Katrina & The Waves

If you like Mamma Mia! then it's definitely worth watching the musical Walking On Sunshine - it's basically the same story but set to an 80s soundtrack and it's perfect for getting in the mood for summer!


I’m really hoping all of this sunny weather continues - I’m such a summer person! As usual I’d love to hear if you can think any other songs you can think of about the sun (or even just songs that get you in the mood for summer) - just let me know in the comments!
