Summershine Vol. 2

Friday, September 29. 2006

The summer is almost over, but I finally managed to compile a second CD containing my most favourite tracks related to “summer” and “sunshine” (See this post for the first compilation). After some searching it wasn’t too easy to find my favourite songs amongst all of the possible tracks, but I think I gathered together a nice collection of cool recent and past tracks.

Pohlmann – Wenn jetzt Sommer wär (a German singer-songwriter dreaming of summer time)
The Ataris – Boys of summer (just gaining more momentum than Don Henley’s original version)
Heiko and Maiko – Sonnenschein (light weighted house track dreaming of sunshine)
Luttenberger-Klug - Super Sommer (see this article)
Bananafishbones - 1. FC Sommer (this track is just relaxing)
Peter Licht – Sonnendeck (similar relaxing like the Bananafishbones)
Patrick Nuo – Five days (this track has no “summer” or “sunshine” in its title, but it tells the story of a summer love story.)
Katrina and the Waves – Walking on Sunshine (the classic track dealing with sunshine)
Kate Yanai – Summer Dreaming
Mungo Jerry - In the summertime
Laid Back – Sunshine Reggae
DMX – Ain’t no Sunshine
David Tavare – Summer Love
Milk and Suga – Let the Sunshine in
The Corrs – Summer Sunshine
The Underdog Project - Summer jam 2003
Texas – Summer Son
Los Massot – Un rayo del sol (first really noticed that song being whistled in “Lucia y el sexo”)
Ace Of Base - Cruel Summer (Hartmann & Langhoff Short Mix)
Bananarama - Cruel Summer
Dido – Sand in my shoes (Not necessarily a summer song – but it very well tells the story arriving at home after a great summer holiday)

Hoping for sunshine

Wednesday, August 16. 2006

The weather forecast predicts some 28°C for tomorrow and I predict a riot if this won’t come true! It’s just to cold right now? Where is the beautiful summer we had when we celebrated the soccer worldcup? I’m yearning for sunshine and warm weather! So dear sun, please don’t let me down and come back! Once you are back I won’t let you go!
