366 Songs 115: Summer Holiday

Quite why this song has been in my head for the last week or so, I have no idea, but that riff keeps returning when I least expect it.

It’s a riff that I want to be stolen by something else, to be used in a way it deserves instead of this treacley, over-produced tweefest with the syrup vocal and trite lyrics, not to mention the light entertainment strings, but… Man. That riff. Somebody, sample it and save it. Please.

(The riff comes from Cliff Richards’ then-backing band, the Shadows, who also did stuff like this:

The Shadows had their moments of awesomeness, as you may be able to tell.)
