Cruel Summer

We are having a major heat wave in New York right now. It’s been over 95F and humid for two days and the weather report says nothing is going to change for at least a week. Considering it’s only Tuesday we are in for some long hotness. The one song that really triggers my mind into summer mode is Cruel Summer by Bananarama. Something about the melody and singing just feels like summer.

“Hot summer streets and the pavements are burning I sit around. Trying to smile but the air is so heavy and dry. Strange voices are sayin’. What did they say. Things I can’t understand. It’s too close for comfort this heat has got right out of hand.” – Bananarama

What’s your favorite summer song?

  1. Beach boys would be sweet, reminds me of kinder summer days. Right now i can barely breathe outside, hooray humidex. Best idea is staying in the studio, tidying up cables, listening to new music.

  2. 75 all year round in san diego. It would be hard to live anywhere else after living here. When there is blizzards and 10 feet of snow and ice, it’s still in the 70’s here. not to hot or cold here
