NME's 50 Greatest Summer Anthems

Wakacje na blogu chciałbym zacząć od kolejnego postu zainspirowanego artykułem prasowym. W tym roku NME zapytało 50 wykonawców o to, jaka piosenka najbardziej kojarzy się im z latem. Rezultaty znajdziecie poniżej, załączam także odpowiednią playlistę.

Alex Kapranos - Franz Ferdinand - Shamir - On The Regular

"I think it might be a summer song this year. It feels fresh and it’s original and the energy’s really good. It feels like an uplifting and optimistic song – it puts you in a good mood, which is what I like from a summer anthem. I love the video, too."

Andy Bell - Ride -  Oasis - Live Forever

Alloysious Massaquoi - Young Fathers - William Onyeabor - Fantastic Man
Austin Williams -  Swim Deep - Mafia Lights - West
Bez - Bob Marley - Rebel Music
Brandon Flowers - Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody Who Loves Me
Brian Briggs - Stornoway - Teenage Fanclub - Ain't That Enough
Carl Barat - The Libertines - The Velvet Underground - Cool It Down

Chuck D - LL Cool J - Tell Tha World
Dave Grohl - Cheap Trick - Surrender

"I remember being on the bench in Ocean City, Maryland, drunk as hell, sitting on a lifeguard chair at three o’clock in the morning and singing that song at the top of my lungs. And realising that it actually felt good to sing and release like that.”

Dominic McGuiness - The Bohicas - The Kinks - Plastic Man
Du Blonde - Frank Zappa- Camarillo  Brillo
Florence Welch - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - The Jubilee Street

"I think this was the song that summed up the last summer I had. That was the summer that I was writing ‘How Big,How Blue, How Beautiful’. It’s so beautiful,it’s like something just opening out, butI don’t think it’s particularly summery. I would probably still try to put it on at a barbecue, though. That does happen. I’m like, ‘Can we just listen to Nick?’ and everyone’s like, ‘No! Like, come on!’ So yeah, I’m not sure I’m the best person to ask for light, summery tracks!

Frankie Francis - Frankie & The Headstrings - Kool And The Gang - Summer Madness
Frank Turner - The Levellers - What A Beautiful Day
Ghostpoet - Howlin Wolf - Smokestack Lightnin

Goat - Canned Heart - Going Up The Country
Harry Koisser - Peace - Yacht - Psychic City
Hugo White - The Maccabees - Paul Buchanan -  Summer's On Its Way
Huw Bunford -  Super Furry Animals - Azealia Banks - 212

James Murphy - LCD Soundsystem -  Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers - That Summer Feeling

“It’s a really summery, happy sounding record but it’s actually one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. The chorus goes on about how ‘that summer feeling’s gonna haunt you’, it talks about all the great things about summer, but how nothing will compare to them.”

Jason Williamson - Sleaford Mods - Wiley -On A Level
Joel Amey - Wolf Alice - Klaxons - Golden Skans
Josh Tillman - Father John Misty - American National Anthem

“It fills me with visions of summer cookouts and mindless patriotism.” 
Karen O - Shannon - Let The Music Play
Kieran Shudall - Circa Waves - Pixies - Debaser
Killer Mike - Run The Jewels - The 2 Live Crew - We Want Some Pussy
Lemmy - Motorhead - The Byrds - Mr. Tambourine Man
Locksmith - Rudimental - Earth, Wind & Fire - September
Madonna - The Human League - Don't You Want Me

“When I think about what a summer song is, at first, I think of something celebratory and up – but that’s not quite really it, because I’ve dug some incredible summer songs that weren’t. This song reminds me of the days of Danceteria, New York. I’d spend all night on the dancefloor in some hideous outfit while all the skinny, fashionable girls threw drinks on me.”

Mark E. Smith - The Fall - The Velvet Underground - White Light / White Heat
Mike Skinner - The Streets - Dizzee Rascal - Bonkers

"For those moments where people go absolutely crazy it’s all about the big grime hits. I don’t like playing too much grime, but there are always a couple of tunes that are absolute monsters.‘Bonkers’ is fantastic.”

Nick Harmer - Death Cab For Cutie - Led Zeppelin - Friends
Paul Banks - Interpol - Frank Black - The Adventure And The Resolution

Thurston Moore - Ramones - Rockaway Beach
Tom McFarland - Jungle - Marlena Shaw - California Soul
Tom Morello - Rage Against The Machine Tool - Undertow
Yannis Philippakis - Foals - Souls Of Mischief - 93 Til Infinity

"It’s a total hip-hop classic of that era with a real summery feel to it and it has the lyric ‘Mahi Mahi,
good vibrations/So many females, so much inspiration’, which is a pretty great couplet. The moment I hear it, itmakes me wanna go down to the basketball court. "

Wayne Coyne - The Flaming Lips - Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
