So apparently, this week is going to bring the hottest day of the year so far, which is making lockdown and all the restrictions a little easier to take. Just as every good Superhero needs a sidekick, what is the sun without music? I mean, it's still good...but with the right soundtrack, it can make it 100X BETTER - and that's what this week's EscapList is going to do!

 

LISTEN TO ESCAPLIST: SUNSHINE HITS RIGHT HERE.

5. I Heart Sharks - Summer

If you're a fan of Made In Chelsea (we're not judging you, honestly) you may already be familiar with this song. If you're not, you need to check this out - the song that is. We won't make you watch MIC.

6. Mac Miller ft Anderson.Paak - Dang!

Sadly, Mac Miller is no longer with us, but the music he did bless us with is truly incredible. This one. featuring Anderson.Paak, is perfect for any summery playlist!

7. Wham! - Club Tropicana

Another musician who left this world before their time, one half of Wham!...the iconic George Michael! Club Tropicana is a TRUE summer-party starter. You can't help but grab a cocktail and dance as soon as this comes on. Let's have a sunshine boogie, let's have it for George!

8. Tim Berg - Seek Bromance

The world of dance music hasn't been the same since Tim Berg aka Aviici left this planet, but this (amongst loads of others) is a huge, summery, sunshine-filled anthem. It'll never not sound good.

9. Tame Impala - Lost In Yesterday

Taken from their latest album The Slow Rush, Lost In Yesterday oozes that chilled, laid-back, beer in hand, baking in the sun, relaxed vibe...and who doesn't want that? To be fair, the whole LP is incredible, so give the full thing a listen!

10. Will Smith - Miami

And finally, the ultimate summer party anthem. We couldn't have an EscapList dedicated to the sunshine without having this old school banger from Will Smith in it!
