This week, I’ll be catching up with friends and family on the east coast, so I’ve put the call out to some of Canada’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.
