Summer Soul Station Part 7: Soundtrack To Sunrise

This is a downtempo/funky chill mix for the early hours to sunrise, when you’re waiting for sleep to come with Summer Soul Station on, your favourite radio station, of course… ;-) These are soft tunes to make you feel comfortable, when you’re alone in your bed and music is your only company. ‘Don’t you forget about me’ from the movie ‘The breakfast club’ was first offered to Bryan Ferry in the 1980s, but he refused. He still regrets his refusal to this day, because it was his chance to have a breakthrough hit in the US. Billy Idol didn’t want to record the song either. Finally the Simple Minds accepted the track and it’s their bestselling song until this day… The version I included is from the album 'Hollywood, mon amour', a project from Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague). The new Washed Out album lacks good songs, but I like the Lovelock remix of their new single ‘Eyes be closed’. Enjoy these songs that accompany sunrise! Pictures from Valeria Querini.

If you want to hear some more, you can listen to my Trip To The Seaside on AOR Disco. Thanks to Matthew for giving me the opportunity to do a guest mix.
