Roaming into Summer!

Hi everyone!

Cabo Verde beach praia

 

As some of you know, the writers of this blog (myself included) live in Portugal, a country in which the summer has arrived several weeks ago – and hopefully will remain for a few more! As so, we (I am assuming it is not just me) feel like listening to summer songs, whatever that is 😛 And although I am not sure what that is, there are some that we can label as “summer songs” quite easily.

 

Na Ri Na, from Lura, is one of those songs. Lura is a Portuguese singer but her songs are mainly based in Cape Verdean traditional music (she is of Cape Verdean descendent). In 2005 she released her main hit (I guess), Na Ri Na, a great song that makes us want to catch the first flight to Cape Verde to enjoy the beaches and the good weather. Maybe this post helps you to clear your indecisions about this summer vacations 😛

Songs to sing in the shower

ImageHi! Remember me? I’m back from camping and I bring you some old and funny songs to sing in the shower. In this post i will bring up to you some songs that fit perfectly with the moment when we’re showering with other strangers as happens in camping. If you’re thinking of travelling to portugal and stay at a camping place you need to learn these musics. I can guarantee some laughs and that your showering moments will never be the same.

First hit (Caution: this one can bring applauses)

Second hit

Third hit

(This last one was a suggestion made by a friend, thank you DG)

Runaway

Today I’ll bring you another classic from the 60’s (I am not sure, but I must have brought some before :P).

Del Shannon RunawayI got to know today’s song by listening to a Frusciante’s (my guitar idol, if you remember) cover. By the way, if you like John, this concert is a nice one to listen to! 😉

But well, after getting to know Frusciante‘s cover, I decided to listen to the most known version (I thought it was the original until 20 seconds ago), from a guy called Del Shannon, and it became a hit to me, being a top played and performed song – quite funny to play on the guitar and sing, I think.

Hope you like it too and that you go along singing the “wah-wah-wah-wah” part 😛

You can also check Elvis Presley‘s and Kasabian’s versions, if you will.
