Hi Community,

I'm looking for songs which have a relation to the topics sun/sunshine/california and in between.

It's not  just the title or the lyrics. Could be the sunny sound itself and has not to be just soul music. 

Thanks in advance and have nice and sunny weekend.

Best

Martin

AIN'T NO SUN SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE.

It's been recorded by The Dynamics, The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, and Chuck Jackson. But the best version is by Dusty Springfield from her album Definitely.
