On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, JJ Barnes shares a list of chilled out songs to listen to on a sunny afternoon.
Written by JJ Barnes
I share some of my recommendations for the perfect music for your ‘sunny afternoon chilling in the garden with a glass of something cold’ playlist.
Some you’ll know, some you won’t, but all make me want to put my sunglasses on, drink wine, and get a tan on my very, very pale legs.
Pure Shores by All Saints
Written for The Beach, this lovely summery song has upbeat pop beats with laid back vocals.
Mood Ring by Lorde
A chilled out song with Lorde’s interesting way with lyrics and beautiful voice.
Sweetest Thing I Know by Dr Fabola
This song is about all the beautiful things in life, just like sitting in the sun and feeling grateful for the summer.
Bubbly by Colbie Caillat
A pretty and sweet love song that sounds like love in the sunshine.
I Will Wait by Mumford And Sons
A folky love song that sounds like you’re sitting in a pub beer garden, drinking real ale, and getting just a tiny bit sunburned.
Kaleidoscopes by Constellation Prize
With beautiful vocals and laid back Zero-7 style beats, this is the perfect addition to your summer playlist.
Let The Sunshine In by Jimetta Rose And The Voices Of Creation
This song from an LA community choir led by Jimetta Rose does exactly what it says on the tin. It lets the sunshine in!
Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson
Jack Johnson’s music epitomizes a relaxing sunny day. It’s laid back and sounds like it was written on the beach.
August by Taylor Swift
Soft vocals like sunshine over your skin from the one and only Taylor Swift.
