Everybody looks forward to their summer holidays and then all too quickly looks back on them. One thing that is guaranteed to bring back memories of that week in the sun is hearing a song from your time away.
Cumbrian Cottages have put together a spotify playlist of their favourite Summer Holiday Songs. You can visit by clicking on the picture. See any that stir visions of sun kissed beaches for you?
I couldn’t begin to name all the dodgy Euro-pop tunes that made up the soundtrack to my holidays in my late teens and early twenties which now lead to reminiscences of terrible clubs and too much cheap vodka (and coming home needing a holiday to recover).
Of course there’s also hits from the eighties that rang out from my parents car stereo as we headed off down south while my brother, sister and I bickered in the back. Do you remember when ‘Now that’s what I call music’ was still in single figures?
Now my holiday soundtrack is much more likely to be full of nursery rhymes competing with the beeps and rings emitted by E’s DS from the backseat but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
So what are the songs that take you back to favourite summer moments?
