My Personal Summer Hit of 2012
Every year, there’s a song which dominates the radio during the summer – the summer hit. This year, there’s not yet such a song. I would like to nominate this drum ‘n’ bass song by Rudimental, featuring John Newman, called ‘Feel the Love’. It’s not an exceptionally happy song, which summer hits almost always are, but the message is there: feel the love. I first noticed this song during broadcast of the European Championship, the public broadcaster ‘NOS’ uses this song to compile the matches in a summary. Not knowing which song this was, I jumped up and used Shazaam on my phone when the song came on yesterday. I’ve been listening to it ever since. Yes, this should be 2012’s summer hit.
