Now its summer, at least in dates anyway what are your favourite summer songs I'll start with

Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
Three Lions - Baddiel, Skinner and the Lightning Seeds
Ignition Remix - R Kelly
Blue Monday - New Order (has to be the full 12" version)
We Are The Champions - Queen (more spring though, love it when its played at Preston North End when we win a championship, I've heard it twice now more than Blackpool fans have. Ha, ha. Ha, ha. Ha)
Perfect - Fairground Attraction
Paradise City - Guns n' Roses
So What - Anti Nowhere League (Personel reasons but there is something about slipping this song into a BBQ soundtrack, check the lyrics out)
Fool's Gold - The Stone Roses

There we are, fantastic for when the weather is 'scorchio'


Guess who's back?

Freddie's "Let's Turn It On" has always had a very summer feel to me.

That song almost makes me cry! Probably because I gave it on a CD to my boyfriend right before he left the country and I wouldn't see him again for a long, long time. You get a bit sobby from such memories together with "this is the time, but time is gonna change..."

*sniff*
