Summer Playlist 2018: Our team’s favourite tunes for summer

Elaine

PURE SHORES, ALL SAINTS

This song makes me feel like I’ve been transported to a beach somewhere exotic.

SAVE A PRAYER, DURAN DURAN

I always remember the video for this, filmed in Sri Lanka.  It’s slow and dreamy, and perfect for a hot summer’s day.

LONG HOT SUMMER, THE STYLE COUNCIL

I can feel the heatwave when I listen to this.  Hot, languid days made for finding a shady spot with a cold drink!

HAPPY, PHARRELL

It’s upbeat and always makes me smile.  It’s like listening to a sunny day.

Katy

HERE COMES THE SUN, THE BEATLES

This is one of my ‘go to’ songs when I’m running on Hayling Island Beach on a lovely day.

Becky

LET IT HAPPEN, TAME IMPALA

This song reminds me of watching Tame Impala live at Glastonbury in the afternoon sun. Such happy vibes!

Hannah

PARTY IN ME, YUNG BAE

I love this because it’s a total feel-good tune, plus who doesn’t love a bit of disco?

Stella

THINKING, SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA

I really love listening to this song in the morning when the sun is just starting to come out during summer, it has a lot of energy and gives me a really positive start to the day. And I love a bit of trumpet.

Mark

SUNSET, KATE BUSH

My favourite is ‘Sunset’ by Kate Bush on the Aerial album – a simply beautiful song that evokes the warm glow of long summer evenings before erupting into a Spanish gypsy style chorus at the end… one of my all-time favourites.

Sadia

RAVIN, POPCAAN

This song reminds me of late night summer BBQ’s in London and all day dancing at Notting Hill Carnival!

Lindsey

IT MAKES YOU FORGET, PEGGY GOU (ITGENHANE EDIT)

Mine would be It Makes You Forget by Peggy Gou (Itgenhane Edit). It makes you want to get up and dance!

Stephanie

IN MY VIEW, YOUNG FATHERS

My song for summer is new for this year! This one is great for pretending your relaxing at a poolside bar. (I have been massively over playing this in the design room already!)

Charlie

ON THE ROAD, SUNSET SONS

This song always reminds me of summer on the beach and road trips to the south west of France!
