I’ve had so much fun compiling my Summer Soundtrack to 2012
Each of the following songs has a special memory for me. As soon as I hear them, I’m instantly transported back to a particular moment in the past three months …
… listening to Delilah whilst driving through a sunny New Forest on the way back from my birthday treat
… singing ‘Rise Up’ at the top of my voice whilst driving through the Italian Dolomites
… sitting in the car in the middle of a cold, wet, farmer’s field in the Lake District and being magically ‘transported’ to Majorca where Jessie Ware was singing live at ‘Mallorca Rocks’.
… and the memories go on…
I’ve finished off my summer soundtrack with Underworld’s Caliban’s Dream. This is the ’32 bars of bliss’ that accompanied the lighting of the Olympic Torch at the Opening Ceremony. What an incredible summer we’ve had here in the UK. It’s been epic!
