Cliff Richard – Summer Holiday 

Summer Holiday - Cliff Richard

10. U2 – Beautiful Day

There’s no better way than to kick off the summer driving list than with one of the most iconic driving songs ever (and possibly U2’s biggest hit to date). This song has the power to put you in a good mood regardless if you’re stuck in traffic on the way home or cruising down the lanes to the beach on a Saturday afternoon. Powerful. 

Beautiful Day - U2

9. Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69

We keep knocking those big summer tunes out of the park, but we all know and love Summer of ’69. We can all recollect singing that at a holiday park campsite, or listening to someone’s Dad rock out to it. Windows down, and music up. Bliss.

Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

8. Stereophonics – Have A Nice Day

Do da doo do da doo. We’re all known for humming along to this one. An amazing driving song, and a lovely band, we will have a nice day – thanks!

Have a Nice Day - Stereophonics

7. Bob Marley – One Love

It’s time to mellow out now with the sweet sounds of Bob Marley. Nothing better than the wind in your hair and the sun on your face when you’re listening to this one.

One Love - Bob Marley

6. Tracy Chapman – Fast Car

Although this song may have a few lyrics on the dark side, it doesn’t take away from the fact its brilliant. It may be a one hit wonder from Tracy Chapman, but her beautiful tone mixed with those soft guitar melodies make for sweet, sweet music!

Fast Car - Tracy Chapman

5. Hanson – MMMbop

 Just have a little look at their faces – Youth! Another catchy tune that you will find yourself humming for about a week after hearing it, but it sure does give us that summer feeling. We love it.  

MMMbop - Hanson

4. Nelly Furtardo – I’m Like A Bird

It’s summer and we would all love to be free as a bird, but the closest we can get is to be speeding down those lanes blasting out some Nelly Furtado. This is an absolute classic. It makes you want to spin around in circles with your arms out.

I'm Like A Bird - Nelly Furtardo

3.  Toploader – Dancing In The Moonlight

This is one of those songs you’ll be playing as you drive home after a day spent with great company. A sweet summers evening whistling away as you create memories of a life time. 

Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader

2. George Ezra – Budapest

George is new to the music scene this year. His European tour sold out in minutes, and he’s spending the summer playing all the festivals. You’ll find yourself singing away to this for the rest of the day.

Budapest - George Ezra

1. Will Smith – Summertime

No summer playlist is complete without this ultimate tune. We all know it, and can’t help but sing and rap along. Enjoy.
