Lazy Weekend Music – the heat is on
Posted July 9, 2016on:
Good Saturday and weekend to you Widdershins
This time we can truly say thank goodness this week is over! Yes, the heat is on, and in many ways.
It did not start well with the announcement and statement by F.B.I. Director James Comey regarding Hillary’s use of her private email server when she was Secretary of State. The good news was that he stated there was no way anyone would make a decision to prosecute her or her assistants over the server. The bad news is that the Republicans were, to say the least, not happy with that decision and decided to call the Director
on the carpet, uh to Capitol Hill to answer some questions they had. They still didn’t like the answers they got and so the merry go round will continue.
Then, two episodes of dismay and disgust as, once again, two black men were shot and killed for seemingly no reason at all in Baton Rouge and a St. Paul suburb. After that, a third episode of utter horror as a lone sniper opened fire on Dallas police officers as the officers were present at a peaceful protest of the first two shooting events. The attack killed five officers and injured another seven.
After these events this week, let’s have a “time out” shall we? I don’t know about the weather where you are Widdershins, but it’s been hotter than, well, it’s been hot this past week. Heat indices in Bama were in the 100° range and in nola there were heat advisories most of the week. So with that let’s take a look at some songs about summer, heat and the like. There are tons of songs out there with mentions of heat, fire, summer. I’m also adding in some images of dogs and heat because although we aren’t in the dog days of summer yet, they’re approaching.
(1) Summer in the city ~ The Lovin’ Spoonful
(2) Hot Summer Night ~ Grace Potter and The Nocturnals
(3) Hot! Hot! Hot! ~ Buster Poindexter
(4) Heat Wave ~ Martha & The Vandellas
(5) Too Hot ~ Kool and The Gang
* * * *
Now sometimes when it’s too hot you want to cool off
(6) Ice Ice Baby ~ Vanilla Ice (now don’t laugh too much!)
(7) Rupert Holmes ~ Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
Okay Widdershins, you get the drift and idea. I know you’ll be able to come up with some songs and we can take our minds off of shock, sadness and the like for a day or two.
