The votes are in.

After much heated debate GavD wins a voucher worth €25 to spend at his leisure in any of the 13 Golden Discs Stores nationwide.

Gavin selected surprisingly sturdy, stupidly infectious 1998 smash Sunburst by Picture House (above) as the ‘quintessential’ song to start an Irish Summer.

He explains: “Perfect pop loveliness that even your granny would sing along to.if it doesn’t cheer you up, you have no soul.

Fight!

Bubblin’ under:

Otis Blue: “The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish Summer is ‘Five honours and a 175’ by Irish band The Alsatians. A perfect paean to the post-leaving summer months.“Five honours and a 175, an education and a licence to ride

Columbus: “The perfect song to herald the start of THIS Irish Summer is “Joxer Goes to Stuttgart”.As we return to the Euros and return to the good times(?), Christy’s feelgood social commentary is your only man!”

Anne:
“The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish Summer is ‘No Rain’ by Blind Melon.”

Smith:
“The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish summer is ‘Summer in Dublin’ by Bagatelle ‘and the Liffey as it stank like hell.’ Still does.”

Brother Barnabas:
The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish summer is Welcome to the Cheapseats by The Wonder Stuff.

Brianers: The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish Summer is Hello,Hello,Hello,Hello,Hello by Something Happens.

Randy Ewing:
“The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish Summer is July by Mundy, all the highs and lows of an Irish summer in a few minutes.Saw him sing it 2 weeks ago in the Academy and still sounds great. He even wore the cowboy hat!!”

JoeO:
“The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish summer is Samhradh, Samhradh by The Gloaming.”

The People’s hero: “The perfect song to herald the start of an Irish Summer is – Why Does the Sun Shine? (The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas) by They Might Be Giants…”

Thanks all.

      What? I hear you ask*…

      Somebody mentioned a bridge on the Soutrhside that you can jump off. You wouldn’t happen to know what bus-route it’s on, would you?
      I don’t know how to express my disappointment.
      -But congratulations to the young lad who won it. I bet your Mam and Dad are proud.

    Thanks.. It was great to be selected to not win a 25 euro voucher that I wouldn’t have spent anyway.
    It’s just Anne, no D though. :)

      Could you not just say nothing, if all you do say is negative?

      Not a big ask now, is it?

          Many have a moan and groan – very few JUST whinge and whine – huge difference

        You’ll have to address this question directly to your mother. She was banned from here weeks ago.
