Oh hello Summer. You took so long to arrive but now you are here we can bask in all your sunny glory. When we think of Summer we think of cocktails, floral crowns, denim cut offs and most importantly music. Music is good for the soul and everyone has that ‘you had to be there moment’ when ‘their’ song came on and nothing else in the world mattered apart from that very ‘moment’.

This got us thinking about our very own Summer ┬ámusic ‘moments’. So what are our ultimate Summer time hits? Read on to find out more…

Ahh the Summer of 2011, a little known DJ (to the masses) was about to unleash a monster hit onto dancefloors around the World. From Ibiza to Paris, London to Kavos (classy), the clubbers went wild for this record and even today when heard people still get that butterfly feeling of ‘where were you when you first heard it?’ Say hello to Summer Musical Moment number 1, it is of course Avicii – ‘Levels’…

Next up on this list of Summer Time scorchers is simply a booty shaking classic. If you were on a night out and this record came on, ladies ran to the dance floor and men just admired. It was the Summer of 2003 and the start of the Bey and Jay romance. Oh yes, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s – ‘Crazy in Love’ is our next Summer Musical Moment…

Okay so we are going to take it way, way, wayyyyy back now. To a classic. A serious classic. If you were a kid in the 90′s there was one TV show that you religiously watched. It made us laugh and it had a ridiculously catchy theme tune (if you didn’t know the words you were seriously uncool). Our love affair with one certain Actor was born and hasn’t faded, even when he bought out this cheesy but unforgettable record. Back in the Summer of 1991 we met The Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff. Come on sing with us now, Summer, Summer, Summer timeeeeee.

So what of Summer 2013? Well let’s be honest there is some serious contenders, Daft Punk’s Get Lucky was a pretty close contender, followed by Robin Thicke and Blurred Lines (both two Pharrell Williams hits FYI). But really the crown for this year’s Summer Moments song has to go to a relatively unknown Swedish partnership… A duo by the name of Icona Pop. Awesome video with fashion, clubbing and shouty lyrics? Check. Say hello to the Summer Moment of right now.
