This summer is going to be packed full of trips and I will want a playlist to listen to on the many road trips between destinations. I tried to keep it short? 😂
Most of these songs have a backstory on how they came to be part of my life (yep, you can cringe. Music is just so awesome though). Some of them I have discussed, but some are too weird and personal to share – but I do write about a few embarrassing ones.
Amarillo – Tony Christie
This song holds a special place in my heart. I can’t remember the first time I listened to this song, so it must have been a while ago. With me going to Menorca (a Spanish speaking island) I think it would be quite fitting!
Late Nite – The Strokes
Breakfast At Tiffany’s – Deep Blue Something
I can’t really explain how many memories this song gives me. I’ve only listened to it in good parts of my life, so there’s no nostalgia held to its name!
Hall Of Fame – The Script
Rain – The Script
Parklife – Blur.
This song is so… British. I love the dialogue used in the beginning.
Pretty Shining People and Paradise – George Ezra
Ezra’s new (not so new anymore) album: Staying At Tamara’s is a hit for me. I love every single song in it, though my favourites are these two.
Troublemaker – Olly Murs
Somebody Told Me – The Killers
Mr Brightside – The Killers
Not only is this an indie anthem, it is also a song that was played on repeat at my summer Scout camp last year. There was this open-air stage that was emitting music from 9:00am until 23:00 every day. I am so blessed. Some of this was live music as well!
Imagine – John Lennon
Great message. Great man.
Are You Gonna be My Girl – Jet
Mr. Blue Sky – Electronic Light Orchestra
I wasn’t one of those people who got obsessed with this song after its participation in Guardians of the Galaxy. I have always had a connection with this song. Maybe I was in primary school when I heard for the first time? Maybe even before that?
