Let’s go with an old classic, Here comes the sun by The Beatles



Great title! Looking forward to it, as the sun hasn't really arrived here in Portugal, as usual 🤣

Southern Rock & Salsa.

These are my two playlists for these genres:

I love riding along with the first playlist, and the second is ideal for dancing but also feeling happy.

Both lists have great nostalgic hits, with Lynyrd Skynyrd & Ismael Rivera as the main references!

The summer nostalgy I get from music will be forever tied to the limited amount of CDs we had to load into an old radio that still works! xP There are plenty of songs that immediately bring me back to those lazy summer days, but if I had to pick 2:

Rock you like a Hurricane by Scorpions, from the World Wide Live album my father had. This album was launched in 1985, 11 years before I was even born 🤣 But I spent many many summer afternoons listening to it.

Dani California from the legendary Stadium Arcadium album by Red Hot Chili Peppers, is also very summer nostalgic to me. Reminds me of the influence my brother had in my musical tastes.

For me this song always sounds like Summer:
Adriano Celentano - Azzurro 

iOS help:


There are many summer-themed songs in Japanese pop music, but here we have selected a traditional song that has been sung for many years. The title of the song is "Memories of Summer." I learned this song in music class in elementary school, and I still remember it even after more than 50 years.

Those are young guys, and the song is "just" 10 years old, but it makes me nostalgic about the summer of 2014: H.E.A.T - Point of no Return

Not specific for a particular time, yet very powerful song: Coverdale/Page - Take Me for a Little While

Wouldn't be me without Iron Maiden on the list 🙂 

Summer of 2010, the anticipation of the new album and my second concert: Iron Maiden - El Dorado

Summer of 2022, the return of live music after two years of absence: Iron Maiden - Stratego

Last, but not least, the ultimate nostalgia song: Magnum - When We Were Younger

I do have a passion over 80's music. I have an entire playlist with many many songs, that going in a different direction over my usual music passion, which is hard and angry metal musics. 80's were some happy and lovely era for music.

One of my preferred is this one:

Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me (1983)

and the funny thing is, I met this music because of this cover, which is more my usual taste of music.

Warmen - Somebody's Watching Me (2005)

Hope you like it.

What a great idea! 😎

Sharing my chill summer vibe So Weit Wie Noch Nie 🎶


This one is quite old for Hardstyle fans and has the ultimate 2000's vibes (think it's from 2012??? but something is sure going on with the outfits in the video), but sure get's people dancing. 

Wildstylez Feat. Niels Geusebroek - Year Of Summer (Official Videoclip) (

And one of my grandma's favorites which is stuck in my head quite often :D. We listened to it (or one of the 100 other versions) on her gramophone in the basement when it was too hot. 

Madonna - La Isla Bonita (Official Video) (

Oh yes, unforgettable year of 2012, golden times for Dutch hardstyle 😎

The challenging bit in this challenge is trying to keep it under 200 items long 🤣

I'll try to summarize, but just keeping within my Spotify's "Liked Songs" scope!

First, searching "Summer" on the title a see a few great tracks:

  1. Joe Hisaishi - One Summer's Day 
  2. Seth MacFarlane - The Things We Did Last Summer
  3. Vybz Kartel - Summer Time
  4. Simple Plan - Summer Paradise ft. Sean Paul
  5. Cais Sodré Funk Connection - Summer days of fun

Then, there are some other truely nostalgic songs, that keep that summer vibe going:

  1. Akon - Don't Matter
  2. Asaf Avidan, The Mojos - One Day / Reckoning Song
  3. Marc Anthony - Vivir Mi Vida 
  4. Fogo Fogo com Sara Tavares - Kabu Frontam 

And so much more! 🙂

I feel like my playlist will get longer after this post: so many good suggestions from all! 🎶

Best regards, Pedro Deodato
