Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #101 – “Feels Like Summer,” from Shaun the Sheep Movie
101. “Feels Like Summer,” from Shaun the Sheep Movie
I don’t remember much about the actual film — like most Aardman movies, I forget a lot of the plots and think they’re generally just kind of pleasant without loving them all that much — but I do remember this song. This plays a couple of times throughout the film, and each time I head it, my ears perked up, because it’s just a catchy, lovely song. It’s like a later Beach Boys song, or like a That Thing You Do kinda one-hit wonder song. It’s quite literally a song that feels like summer, and it’s really well done.
And also, how fitting that today, for a lot of people, is the actual beginning of their summer.
