The Safety Dance

If there's one song that's going to remind me of Summer 2010 then this is it. It was originally released in 1983 by Canadian band Men Without Hats accompanied by a memorable video with a cast of quirky characters.

It's now undergoing a revival and seems to keep popping up all over the place. My favourite routine from the TV series Glee has to be Artie's version of the song in his dream dance sequence at the mall. It has also been used in the Uk for Freeview's Tiny Streaker ad campaign during the World Cup.

And if there happen to be any men, or women, without hats out there looking for a change of image - then here are a few cool designs for a hot summer!

This is my gold, orange and red 'Sunset' design hand-drawn in Caran d'Ache Aquarelle coloured pencil and gold ink, cropped into an oval shape
