WHETHER YOU ARE out and about this weekend on the beach or down the pub or else just keeping the head down, we’ve compiled the soundtrack for the bank holiday weekend.

Earlier today, we asked our followers on Twitter and our friends on Facebook to make some suggestions for songs to accompany the long weekend and you were obliging in your droves. Thank you for that!

So without further ado here’s your bank holiday mix tape.

We’ve got More than A Feeling that this weekend is going to be a good one…

How about this sunny weather we’re enjoying? We bet you’re wishing we could have it All Summer Long

Still, with these high temperatures it would be nice for a bit of a Summer Breeze…

We wonder if it this June bank holiday will be as good as the one back in the Summer of ’69…

Are you off down the country or heading up to the Big Shmoke for the weekend? You might avail of rail services in which case it will be like The Day We Caught The Train

Are you off out for a few scoops? Perhaps you will be looking for some one to Take Me Out…

If you’re off out on the road for the weekend then this power ballad from Fleetwood Mac should keep you entertained in the car. If you are on the bicycle, make sure you don’t break The Chain…

Some of us on road trips will be confined to the back seat. We’d hate to be Stuck in the Middle With You

Perhaps, if you’re working working or feeling under the weather, you’ll get the head down and be Going Underground…

But if the weather stays this good, chances are you’ll hit the Beach Baby…
