Suggestions for Sunny/Summer playlist

Like most ppl here in the UK, a couple of days of sun has got me breaking out the factor 40 and organising a BBQ to celebrate "summer coming early"!

So, I'm trying to build up a playlist with a "sunny" feel to it. Reggae and ska (3rd wave) obviously work well, but I'm also looking for anything that just feels "sunny" and would sound great sat in the beer garden of your local or in your back garden BBQ.

Here's some I have so far, to name but a few.

Bob Marley - Buffalo Soldier (and pretty much anything else by Bob)
Ry Cooder - Poor Mans Shangri-la
Sublime - Chica Me Tipo
NoFx - Eat the Meek
Jools Holland feat. Jamiroquai - I'm In The Mood For Love
Queen - Cool Cat
Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
The Thrills - Santa Cruz
Horny Toad - Shiver
The Polyphonic Spree - It's The Sun
NoFx - Radio
LSK - I Wanted You (Outlaw bonus track)
Dream Acadamy - Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (instrumental)
Beach Boys - I Get Around
Capdown - Bitches & **** Shoes
Weezer - Island In The Sun

All suggestions are welcome and much appreciated!

Keeping with your tempo......

The The - Jealous of Youth
Futro - Rainy Lust
Spirea X - Nothing Happened Yesterday
Ivy - Undertow
Hooverphonic - The Magnificent Tree
The Delgados - Sink or Swim
Trembling Blue Stars - Haunted Days
Saint Etienne - Spring
Metric - Parkdale
Color Factory - Out of My Mind
Mellowdrone - Beautiful Day
Tori Amos - A Sorta Fairytale
Talk Talk - I Don't Believe In You
Primal Scream - May the Sun Shine Bright For You
Lovespirals - Our Nights

Sunshine required though, and in the UK you'll be lucky...

Ha !


Actually, a correction. The Transplants song I suggested was supposed to be Transplants - Diamonds & Guns (though DJ DJ is nice too). It's the song from the Garnier Fructis shampoo commercial (its intro is featured there)...

This song is about rain and ducks thriving in it, is it not?!

Here are a few of my suggestions:
  • Jamiroquai - Seven Days In Sunny June
  • Dario G - Sunchyme
  • Killer Mike - A.D.I.D.A.S.
  • Basement Jaxx - Do Your Thing
