We’re heading for the second sunny weekend in a row (fingers crossed), so it’s officially summer now, right? Here in the Grazia office, we’re all full of sunshine-y beans today and daydreaming of sun-filled picnics and trips to the seaside. With this in mind, today’s Boredom Buster is a selection of our favourite summery songs. Let the daydreaming begin….
Siam Goorwich, Editorial Assistant - Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff, Summertime
What a summertime classic. This really is one of those songs that does what it says on the tin....ooh to be on South Beach Miami, and not in Tottenham Court Road. Sigh!
Maria O’Connor, Deputy Chief Sub Editor - Bob Marley, 3 little birds
You can’t have summer without Bob Marley, and Grazia’s Queen of festivals Maria O’Connor should know. So sit back, close your eyes, and spend 3 ½ minutes pretending you’re in a muddy field in the West country….bliss.
Caroline Barrett, Assistant Editor - Beyonce ft. Jay Z, Crazy in Love
2003?! Are you seriously telling us it’s been 7 whole summers since this was THE ONLY song to blast out of your stereo? Why, that almost makes it old school! Regardless, we still remember the dance, and bet you do, too. So come on ladies, get up out of your swivel chairs – we can’t leave Caroline to shake her booty all alone!
Marianne Jones, Deputy Editor – Funboy Three, Summertime
Marianne’s taking us back to her hey day for a bit of 80’s ska, and how thankful we are – this Top of the Pops clip is like a lesson in how to dress now. Scary!
Lily Russo, Fashion Assistant – Peter Andre, Mysterious Girl
Is this cool? We’re not sure, but we’re sticking with our girl on this one, and saying that Peter Andre, Mysterious girl is one hot summer hit. Katie – how could you let him go?
Catherine Nieto, Junior Fashion Editor – Mika, Relax
Catherine readily admits that this song is all about the chorus, but once it kicks in, it’s a day spent sipping cider in the beer garden, and partying till the sun rises… Bring on the weekend!
Caroline Ferry, Fashion Intern – Groove Armada, Superstylin’
You’re in Ibizia, you’ve spent the day lounging in your cabana supping Mojitos, and now you’re getting ready to go and party till dawn at Jade Jagger’s mansion. Ok, so you’re actually sitting at your desk counting down the seconds till the weekend, but this is how this song makes you feel, no?
