A Playlist for This’ll Be Our Year

Last week I sent you the links to listen to the brand new single by The Random Hubiak Band, “This’ll Be Our Year.” This week, before I go into the story of the song’s inception and production, I’ve simply got a nice playlist for you. I tried to match the mid-60s style of the song itself to the songs from that era that inspired it, as well as some later songs (from the seventies through the present) that were either also inspired by those same sounds or which celebrate the summer, since this is our official “summer single,” replete with sun, sand, and ocean references!
