This week, Iâ€™ll be catching up with friends and family on the east coast, so Iâ€™ve put the call out to some of Canadaâ€™s most famous stars to guest blog for me. My request was simple: Tell me and the readers about your favourite summer song. It could be a new hit or a classic jam, but write about the song that most reminds you of the awesomeness of summer.
Today’s guest is none other than George Stroumboulopoulos. Fresh off a hit summer run on CNN, Strombo is known for his love his love of music, so I knew he would pick something great for his favourite summer song.
Donovan – Hurdy Gurdy Man
Summer songs have a tendency to be a little too whimsical for my liking. Not this record. It is built on a foundation of uncertainty and unease. Like a late summer breeze. It feels nice, but you know that doom is coming 😉
George Stroumboulopoulos’ show is back with all new episodes beginning Sept 16th on CBC.
