Who In Your Family Remembers This UK Summer Number 1?

Less than one more week until we officially hit everyone’s favourite season! The weather’s hotter, the days are longer and the moods are lifted – in no small part to the inevitable rush of feel-good, summertime songs that get released every year.

While some of these tunes  have endured longer than others, they all help to create a moment in time – a stamp of sorts – that can always be travelled back to, even if it’s just for a few minutes.
