Top Ten Music Genres to Listen to on a Sunny Summer DayInspired by the list by Metal_Treasure about the songs to listen to in Summer 2017.
The Top Ten
A German genre rooted in the French chanson, later in the American swing, and got more and more pop and dance oriented over the years.
The genre is characterized by easily digestible and clean lyrics, simple sing-along melodies, positive feelings and compositions mostly in minor.
The genre is among the best selling in German speaking countries. Schlager albums by famous artists were certified up to ten times platinum and the genre has been around for decades and attracts people of all target groups, genders and ages (if you look into the audience of schlager concerts, you'll see teen boys next to elderly couples), however many people are embarassed to admit they like the genre. Schlager is often looked down upon for whatever reason. But I think it is just right for sunny summer days, even if it's not among my favorite genres.
And also: Andrea Berg is a good schlager singer-songwriter who also has a bit more emotive songs. - Martin_Canine
There is something so magical and ethereal about a Blues vocalist / guitar and / or harmonica being played / performed and listened to in the open air, especially on warm, sunny days. There is just such a strong and overwhelming sense of freedom. There really is nothing quite like it. - Britgirl
This is the happiest and yet the most overlooked and underrated music genre in World music - or any music genre.
Please take time to listen to the likes of Buckwheat Zydeco; Boozoo Chavis; Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band; rocking' Sidney... It WILL make you smile, especially on hot sunny days - this music just makes these days more special. - Britgirl
I really love this. - Britgirl
Great for driving to on a gorgeously warm sunny day. - Britgirl
Nothing like a bit (or rather a lot) of Funk for Hot Fun in The Summertime. - Britgirl
