    Well for a couple of days now it's been temps in the high nineties and the forecast says we shall break the 100 barrier.

    So while the humidity is killing me, I figured it to be fun to start a thread about songs which evoke that feeling of a summer and temps above the level which is comfortable.

    "It was too hot to sleep"

    This one isn't so much the lyrics, it's the song itself which just puts that vision of those HOT summer nights where there's just no relief.

    And can I just express how much I still do LOVE this song...

    And another which gives the visual of the heat just radiating but this time in a club in Downtown New York.

    I could have chosen every other version of that song but this one captures that "We have to move slow because it's too dang hot."

    I read that at least at some point the Bob Marley best of always shoots back into the top 100 every summer. Don’t know if it is still, or was ever true, but I like to believe it.


    Overplayed though it may be.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    "Hunka hunka burning love" the British can only dream about coming up with lines like that. Elvis plays one of his legendary 3 second guitar solos at 1:20 if you're interested.

    They're going to hate us in the future for being so casual about the weather.
