- Words by Mr Tom M Ford
There's something about listening to music at this time of year that seems more significant. We often declare a track "the song of the summer" (anyone heard "Get Lucky"?), or suggest records that encapsulate the season best, and whether it's a holiday soundtrack or the defining sound of a festival, with friends and warm weather summer songs feel personal. They stand for good times, and linger in the memory. With this in mind, as we enjoy the final stretch of sunny season, we asked seven men for the tracks they've enjoyed most of late. An eclectic mix (and not one exclusive to clement weather), there's something for everyone - especially if you've been playing Daft Punk on repeat for the past three months. Read the stories behind their picks below, and head to Spotify to listen to them.
