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…
* Just click the album cover or title of each song to be redirected to the song on iTunes.
Ain't No Sunshine
Chasing The Sun
Here Comes The Sun
I Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
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).
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!
Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
George Michael & Elton John
The House Of The Rising Sun
Two Door Cinema Club
TIEKS (feat. Dan Harkna)
You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
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!
