Now that the Dog Days of summer are behind us, it’s a great time to look back or rather, listen back, to your songs of summer and relive those precious vacations.
I have selected a few of the sunniest tunes from the last 27 years. These songs were big hits in Europe (and the USA in some cases) and are from artists around the world. Give them a listen and perhaps add them to your song list. Singing along and rolling down windows are optional.
