Pizzagirl's Falling in Love: British Summertime playlist

It's time to start getting excited, Dear Reader. We're less than a month away from the unofficial start of our 2019 festival season. That May Day Bank Holiday weekend means one thing - Live At Leeds. Packed with (literally) hundreds of the best new bands on the planet, it sees one of the country's most vibrant creative cities turned into a mecca of buzz, hype and awesome live music.

To celebrate, we're holding a special Live At Leeds takeover. Over the course of the day (11th April 2019, in case you're coming to this late - Ed), we'll be bringing you all kinds of stuff from and about the acts playing this year's event. If you're going, it'll help you plan out those all-important spreadsheets. If you've not yet picked up your tickets - well, what are you waiting for? You can grab 'em here, right now.

Who doesn't love a good rom-com? Miserable bores, that's who. Thankfully Pizzagirl isn't either of those things, and so our Liam has curated a playlist soundtracking his very own British summertime falling in love adventure. Featuring Don Henley's optimistic 'New York Minute' to start, and ending up at having had the time of his life, via lots of tracks that are kind of about rain, it's def a ride.

Don Henley - New York Minute

Okay, so it's not summer yet, but it's been hot for a few days now, and you're feeling that good stuff, but always remember, just like Don Henley sang "in a New York minute, everything can change!"

Clairo - 4ever

That summer high has found you in the middle of a soapy sweet love affair with that burger stand attendant you spoke to twice, but is it ever gonna change, are you going to feel this way forever?

Talking Heads - Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)

Okay like there's now been more sunny days than rainy days what's going on? I'm confused!? The heat goes on... And the heat goes on???

Kings of Convenience - Gold in the Air of Summer

You've been flirting on and off now for about three weeks with this burger stand attendant, and I really think there's something going on between you guys! You get handed a lovely sweet fresh burg, and it shines like gold in the air of summer.

Ariel Pink - One Summer Night

That unreliable weatherman on that channel you hate just burst your love bubble by saying that there's a massive blast of rain showers expected specifically right over your house tomorrow, damn! Guess you better enjoy this one summer night?

Christopher Cross - All Right

You've woken out of bed to your post sleepy nightmare turned REALITY; it's raining!!! BUT calm down okay it's only a bit of wet! It's alright I think we're going to make it! It WILL be sunny again!

Thundercat - Them Changes

You've accepted the natural volatile nature of the world's weather, some days are sunny and some days are not so sunny. You're less angry than you were two rainy days ago, it's just them changes!

Bill Medley - (I've Had) The Time Of My Life

Apparently you don't look as handsome as you did when it was sunny, wow nice! You had your heart broken burger style, and now you're back to that grey drizzle! It's been a journey, I've loved every second of it, (I've had) the time of my life, and I owe it all to you.

Pizzagirl plays Live At Leeds (4th May) and more.

Give all this a try
