Interestingly, it’s the tracks that have come out in recent years that featured most heavily in the top ten of all time, rather than older tunes or retro classics. Whether you’re dancing round a pool with a group of friends, or having a romantic meal with your partner on the terrace, we hope the project sparks conversation and inspiration for your next trip.”
