LMPR’s Favourite Summer Songs
In celebration of the beginning of the summer, the LMPR team is thrilled to showcase their favourite shorts-wearing, convertible-cruising, cocktail-sipping songs.
Brian Paterson – Wait So Long by Trampled by Turtles
In anticipation of seeing them take the stage at Vancouver Folk Music Festival in July – this summer’s track is definitely Trampled by Turtles’ barn-burning ‘Wait So Long.’
Hanah Van Borek – Summer Love by Justin Timberlake
What would summer be without summer lovin’? Justin sets the mood with lyrics that start out, “Ridin’ in the drop top with the top down..” that make you want to hit the beach for a cruise in a convertible.
Sarah Cruickshank – Summer Light by The Cave Singers
While surely a challenge to narrow my summertime playlist to one favourite song, it’s the mellow rhythms and lazy vocals of Summer Light that bring this tune to the top, always reminding me of blissfully warm summer evenings spent with friends.
Jesse Tanaka – Jezebel by Two Hours Traffic
Sunny, power-poppy, good times, Little Jabs was the first album I got to work on out of school in the summer of 07.
Laura Murray – Summer Nights by Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta
I am such a fan of the musical Grease and an even bigger fan of this unforgettable hit. Summer Nights – sung by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta – effortlessly conjures warm nights, beach bonfires, summer bbq’s and summer lovin’. What’s not to love?
Shona Wercholuk – Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen
Everything about this song screams summer – a bright beat with catchy, sing-along lyrics. I love nothing more than to blast this song in the car, with all of the windows down, on a scorching summer day.
