Drank it sitting in the sun
It was summer of '11

Welcome to a surprise special show of Giggles Radio with a tonne of great tunes to sit and chilax to in the sunshine.

It's a bank holiday weekend here in the UK and amazingly it's sunny so we're taking the chance to celebrate with classic tunes and grooves that will get you in the mood for drinking a beer poolside (or a coke window side, or whatever).

Join us from 4pm.

  • 16:25

    AudioLovely Day by Bill Withers.

    We are listening to the 7" Sunshine Mix.

  • 16:26

    The original Lovely Day single reached number 7 in the UK charts, the first time it was released.

  • 16:35

  • 16:39

    AudioGet a Move On by Mr. Scruff.

  • 16:40

    Mr. Scruff was last spotted setting up a record label called Ninja Tuna, which was also the name of his 2008 album.

  • 16:40

    http://www.mrscruff.com/

  • 16:41

    The trouble with URLs is that could say Mr Scruff or Mrs Cruff. Who knows?

  • 16:43

    Ah ha, closer inspection reveals the record label to be Ninja Tune ( http://ninjatune.net/ ) whilst the album was Tuna. A small but significant difference.

  • 16:49

    AudioShe Said by Longpigs.

  • 16:50

    I can't find a site for Longpigs either, but they split up in 2000 which may be why. Dee Boyle left the group and their record company went bust, so they called it a day.

  • 16:51

    Richard Hawley, though, was in Longpigs, then joined Pulp, and has a pretty successful solo career... and a website! http://www.richardhawley.co.uk/

  • 16:55

    AudioSteal My Sunshine by Len.

  • 17:06

    Steal my SunshineSingle cover.

  • 17:07

    Len was founded by brother and sister combo Marc and Sharon Costanzo.

  • 17:08

    A fact from Wikipedia for you: "The group used a $100,000 budget to make the video. They flew to Daytona Beach, Florida with two dozen friends while the area was crowded with people on their spring vacations. They spent much of the budget on alcohol, buying so much that they broke their hotel's elevator trying to lift it."

    AudioDon't Steal Our Sun by The Thrills.

  • 17:14

    http://www.thethrills.com/

  • 17:15

    It looks like the site hasn't been updated since 2008, which could be related to the fact The Thrills were dropped by record label EMI after poor performance.

  • 17:15

    Don't Steal Our Sun was the fourth single off their debut album So Much for the City, but only charted at 45 in the UK.

  • 17:19

    AudioIsland in the Sun by Weezer.

  • 17:19

    http://www.weezer.com/

  • 17:20

    You can't have anything against a band who put Hurley on the cover of their album.

  • 17:21

    This song wasn't originally planned to be on the album - Weezer (The Green Album) - but the producer fought for it and it became one of the band's most popular, and most-licensed tracks.

    AudioStrawberry Letter 23 by Shuggie Otis.

  • 17:53

    Supposedly, the title comes from strawberry-scented letters sent to Otis by a girlfriend.

    This song is sampled in Outkast's Ms Jackson.

  • 18:07

    AudioDuke of Earl by Gene Chandler.

  • 18:07

    Gene Chandler's real name was Eugene Dixon but that matters not as he was forever known as Duke of Earl, or more simply The Duke.

  • 18:10

    AudioMr. Big Stuff by Jean Knight.

  • 18:12

    Mr Big Stuff was released on Stax Records and was up for a Grammy but lost out to Aretha Franklin's cover of Bridge Over Troubled Water.

    Sara Dallin says of the song: "It looked at the oppressive heat, the misery of wanting to be with someone as the summer ticked by. We've all been there!"

  • 18:26

    QuoteComment from Steven Roy: Dungarees are always wrong. I blame the cocktails

  • 18:26

    AudioSummer Girls - LFO.

  • 18:27

    This is the best I can do on the website front: http://warp.net/records/lfo

  • 18:28

    Apparently, the song was never meant for release, recorded simply for a demo tape but was leaked to a radio station. That's why it's full of cultural references and inside jokes.

  • 18:28

    As is always the way, it turned out to be their most popular song.

  • 18:29

    I have never worn Abercrombie & Fitch, I should probably rectify that. I wonder if they do dungarees?

  • 18:31

    AudioSummertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

  • 18:32

    Jazzy and Will did four albums together. Four! I had no idea.

    It all ended when Will Smith started looking for full-time acting work, then he recorded the theme to Men in Black, and the rest is history.

  • 18:33

    Summertime was originally released in 1991, but re-released in 1998 to coincide with the duo's Greatest Hits album.

  • Cannonball is marvellous :P

  • My own fault for listening to R1 in the car :)

  • I think my sister had Len's album

  • I am wikipediaing and all the character names in the movie don't match up with the names in the song, which are the names of the singers. So maybe not in the movie?

  • Sorry I was busy buffering - which movie was this in?

  • My own fault for listening to R1 in the car :)

    The weird thing is that I secretly love the songs that were overplayed on R1 which I hear years later. I tend to not own them so it's great to hear them like old acquaintances.

  • Sorry I was busy buffering - which movie was this in?

    Go

  • Go

    Aha. Katie Holmes...

  • Aha. Katie Holmes...

  • I have maintained my no manics no stereophonics rule all this time... but I am going to break one of them this show

  • Surprise Giggles Radio :D

    Hi all

  • The band did but Dakota was 3 or 4 years after 12:51

    ah, ok. they do sound similar i agree.

  • stereos came waaay before the strokes, though, right?

    as a band the phonics were a good few years ahead, but those tracks were released fairly close

  • I've turned this off. Let me know when it's OK to come back. Tsk.

  • ah, ok. they do sound similar i agree.

    I do think they are both great songs... And for a start off you can hear what he's actually saying in this song

  • I've turned this off. Let me know when it's OK to come back. Tsk.

    To be fair, it could be U2.....*flees*

  • I've turned this off. Let me know when it's OK to come back. Tsk.

    boo! This is the good one!

  • I've turned this off. Let me know when it's OK to come back. Tsk.

  • They played this in the pre-game show (or was it halftime) at an NFL game at Wembley a couple of years ago.

  • Same rthym but different but close-sounding (chord) notes, Giggles. E's intead of C's and all that.

  • it's okay, giggles is bound to play something without words in minute ;)

    The very next track after 12:51

  • boo! This is the good one!

    a thousand trees is better...

  • I'd play this on any radio show i'd ever be on

  • Dakota was the point they got good again after some pretty poor attempts at albums IMO.. although again, it was played on the radio a lot..

  • Just to cheer you up, this was knocked off the top spot by McFly.

    heheh!

  • I just realised I did play this already on the D show!

  • Hi Steven

  • Hi Steven :)

  • I just realised I did play this already on the D show!

    you did. i was looking to prove you'd played them, but gave up. not sure i've heard any manics though.

  • This is the only song anyone knows by them over here, pretty sad really...

  • you did. i was looking to prove you'd played them, but gave up. not sure i've heard any manics though.

    No I'm pretty sure about that...

  • Hey (Doctor) Steven Roy !

  • Sudden recollection (after not actually listening to any 'Phonics for some while) I think the album ending was better than the singlle

  • This is the only song anyone knows by them over here, pretty sad really...

    oh dear :(

  • Hey (Doctor) Steven Roy !

    Loved the daily Jordan. Shame it was on the one day when no-one was around when it went live

    i do!

  • why do you own albums you don't like?

    This sentence doesn't make any sense but it's the best I'm going to be able to come up with:

    I am politically opposed to them rather than disliking them as such.

    Blimey, yes I think I do.

  • I am politically opposed to them rather than disliking them as such.

    I don't mean politics of the band... It's just like yeah I can't explain it

  • I am politically opposed to them rather than disliking them as such.

    I certainly don't agree with everything they say, not violently so though.. a good song is a good song

    That is an absolute classic from one of their Xmas shows. They were the biggest thing on Xmas TV for about 20 years

  • In those years this is what we had to put up with (and tortured our American Cousins) with as these two comedians Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster where both on CBC and the Ed Sullivan show.
