    Brought on by this nice weather we've been having, and having created a playlist on my iPod especially for playing out in the garden during these hot, sticky nights, I wondered what tMPers' favourite summer tunes were? I'll start with a few of my personal faves:

    The Beatles - 'Here comes the sun'
    Isley Brothers - 'Summer Breeze'
    Beach Boys - 'Wouldn't it be nice'
    Gorky's Zygotic Mynci - Patio Song'
    Dusty Springfield - 'The look of love'
    Morcheeba - 'The Sea'
    Coldcut - 'Autumn Leaves (Irresistible Force Remix)
    Royksopp - 'Eple'
    Vangelis - 'Love theme from Bladerunner'
    Mono - 'Life In Mono'

    Wouldn't it be great if they put all these tracks on one record?

    (Youngsters need not rise to the bait on that one!)

    My Summer Selection Album would have to include: (And i think i may go home and make this cd - in this order - I have thought long and hard about this, at least 10 mins)

    Ash - Walking Barefoot
    Koop - Summer Sun
    Groove Armada - Blue Skies
    Gene - Long sleeves for the summer
    Supernaturals - Smile
    Eye Monster - Daydream in Blue
    Travis - Driftwood
    4Hero - Les Fleur
    3 Colours Red - Sunny in England
    Dusted - Under the sun
    Oasis - Chapagne Supernova

    And then crank up the volume...

    I may also try to slip a Gotan Project Track and something off Air's Moon Safari

    I downloaded the Beach Boys "Sounds of Summer - The very best of the Beach Boys" to my MP3 player the other day.

    Madness' music is "summery" too :)

    (Mustn't sing along to the "I get around" in the office - the falcetto will get me funny looks!!)

    'Last Summer' by the Lostprophets
    er... Mungo Jerry?!
    'Exit Planet Dust' by the Chemical Brothers
    Green day's 'Dookie' has a summer nostalgia for me.
    L.A. Woman by the Doors... I love drivin' around with the windows down and the stereo up for that tune!

    Jack Johnson is very summery/chillout music, especially his latest album 'In Between Dreams'.
    My mate and I think there should be a law saying that you can only listen to it in the summer, because it's so summery! :D

    If you're going for Autumn Leaves how about the Coldcut mix?

    My summer music:

    St. Germain de Pres cafe (compilation album, very cool)
    Anything by Manu Chao
    Saian Supa Crew's X Raison or KLR are also good bets.

    Fairy snuff!! ;)

    Another possible future summer classic; Quantic Soul Orchestra's cover of Mr Scruff's "Get A Move On" (As if the original wasn't good enough.....) its fantastic when one of your favourite groups covers a song by another of your favourite artists!
