We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014? Via The Daily Post (24th July 2014)
This is quite easy really. My jam of the summer is Clean Bandit’s Rather Be (featuring Jess Glynne).
Not only does it remind me of my newest friend (Frannie Dee of Double Gym & Tonic), it just makes me happy. This is the year I started to take care of my body and this song has remained firmly on my workout playlist.
FACT: It’s impossible to listen to Rather Be without belting it out loud. Try it. You can’t.
But since this is such a fun topic, here’s the perfect summertime playlist in my opinion.
Mint Royale with Lauren Laverne – Don’t Falter
Tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuune! No bad moods with this on the wireless.
This is relatively new but I love it. It’s so perky. Much like Hayley Williams herself.
Reminds me of pounding the streets of Vancouver during my Summer of Freedom. Yes yes yes.
Marvin Gaye – Got To Give It Up
This song is a classic and I feel like it was written about me! Do you think Marvin Gaye had an awkward chubby redhead in mind when he wrote this? Probs.
Stevie Nicks – Edge of Seventeen
One does not simply leave Stevie Nicks off a heady Summertime jam list.
So there you have it. For more Summer Jams of a decidedly cheesy nature, go here. You’re welcome.
