Last Sunday – while the sun blazed across the mid-day sky, I came across the wonderful Guardian Music writers’ own ‘soundtracks to the summer’. As a concept, it was simple – their writers, telling the stories behind their favourite summer tunes, in short, snappy nostalgic accounts.
From stories of first-love, to childhood holidays, each one was a poignant, personal and provocative account of the memories we all have of past-summers, and the tunes that we remember them by.
This blog is about continuing that idea, and extending it to some of Britain’s best loved writers, musicians, and new talent – as well as the people who make the music industry tick.
The format is simple.
One story, five tunes. Real life memories, lived experiences and nostalgic trips into the past – tell us the story of your own summer playlist.
Your task is set.
It’s time to get sharing.
