🌞 A month full of Summer on the O2 Community ‌🌞

 

Which songs make you think of Summer ?

Maybe it`s a song with Summer in the title or the lyrics

or a song about the weather - such as a song about sunshine or a heatwave

or a song about holidays - such as a song about a destination or a journey

or a song about an activity - such as sunbathing, or surfing, or walking in fresh air

or a fun record released in the summer

 

No matter the reason, why not share the songs that make you think of summer with us on the Communty

Great Topic @Mi-Amigo 

This is one of my favourite Summer Songs. It's from 1966!

So this lazy-day masterpiece, recorded mere days before Redding’s death in a plane crash, doesn’t specifically single out that it takes place during summertime. But just try to listen to the lapping waves, Redding’s whistling and singing about clearing your mind, and that lovely sonic tranquillity throughout, without conjuring your most relaxing summer vacation.

Thank you @Cleoriff 

I totally agree with what you said about Otis Redding`s Dock of the Bay.

 

Here`s another one which makes me think of summer

I love that @Mi-Amigo. A bit tongue in cheek "the Taxman's taken all my dough and left me in my stately home"😂😂

Such a joyful topic @Mi-Amigo! I'm loving it. Of all the songs that have been shared so far, I've gotta say the Kinks one and (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay are my favourites. Beautiful description of the Otis Redding classic @Cleoriff.

My first contribution to the thread has to be the very first song that pops in my head whenever I think about summer and music:


And I've gotta say that that's something I love to do during summertime: going to a street party and dancing in the street 🕺

Gonna be a bit cheeky and add another one here that sprung from the back of my mind, this time a mellow lazy-day atmospheric relaxing tune, to tag along @Cleoriff's choice above with Otis' song.

After all, summer is about relaxing as much it is about partying in my opinion. Nothing like lying on the grass at a park or basking in the sun at the beach listening to some sweet music.

Love all these! It's always a good idea to refresh the playlist with some good vibes. 

 

This one hasn't come to mind for years. Reminds me of a good summer bonfire with my brothers.

Nice one @Breanna. Brought back some memories, some of my mates were huge Sublime fans.
