We’re experiencing something of a premature summer here in England, which, after a shitty winter, is most welcome. With that in mind, here is 5 of the Best to do with summer…
Bob Marley and the Wailers – Sun is Shining: One heavy, heavy bassline juxtaposed with seriously syncopated harmonies, the mystic air of what may well be a clarinet of some description and Marley’s superb, defiant vocal. One of his best, and that is saying something.
The Fifth Dimension – Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine: One gorgeous, colourful, psychedelic track which can’t fail to lift the spirits.

The Beach Boys – Surfin’ U.S.A.: OK, doesn’t really talk of the summer, but you wouldn’t surf in the winter would you? Ok, you might, but this track is purely one for the summer.
The Beatles – Good Day Sunshine: Another one of those summery tracks that instantly makes you happy from the moment you press play.

Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince – Summertime: It’s cheesy, it’s a bit naff, but my god it gets you in the mood for summer.
