    Just sent off to Planet Rock a new Rockblock. 20 favourite tracks. I selected tracks with a link to summer. Not easy, but finally chose songs that rock fans hopefully like to listen to.
    A few of my favourites are : Holidays In The Sun - Sex Pistols. Summer In The City - Lovin Spoonful. Feeling Good - Muse. Schools Out - Alice Cooper. Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden. Sunny Afternoon - Kinks. Anymore suggestions ?

    Some that aren't summer songs but nevertheless remind me of summer:
    59th Street Bridge Song - Simon and Garfunkel
    Good Vibrations / Surfin USA / California Girls - Beach Boys
    Roam - B52s
    Everyday Should be a Holiday - Dandy Warhols

    Great track. Not sure why I never explored them more as I love their epic 'He's simple, he's dumb, he's the pilot '

    Patio Song - Gorky's Zygotic Mynci

    Qualifies as summery, as it has the lyric, 'Oh, isn't it a lovely day, my patio's on fire.'

    Great lyric and a great song.

    This is pretty Mediterranean sunset right now. Can't get enough of the dub remix either. Album drops tomorrow too.
