Music Monday – Feel the Heat

Our air conditioner is kaput.  Waiting for the refrigerant is going to be refilled tomorrow, but until then, it’s going to be a hot summer night.  I know there are folks in the world who are hotter than us or who don’t know what air conditioning is, but it doesn’t make it any less miserable when you’re used to having air conditioning.
Feel the Heat by Jean Beauvoir
(released 1986; peaked #74 US Hot 100, Top Ten across Europe & Australia)
You feel the heat
Just feel the heat
You gotta feel the heat, yeah
Feel the heat, feel the heat
From the Cobra soundtrack.  This is the only song I can recall ever hearing by Jean Beauvoir, at least by that name, but he’s very involved in the music business as you can see by clicking on his name above and reading his Wikipedia page.  I liked the movie, too.  It wasn’t great, but I’m a Stallone fan.
The Heat Is On by Glenn Frey
(released 1984; peaked #2 US Hot 100 & Australia, #4 US Mainstream Rock, #8 Canada)
tell me can you feel it
tell me can you feel it
tell me can you feel it?
The heat is on
the heat is on
the heat is on

Another soundtrack song.  This song did much better on the charts and airwaves, as did the movie, Beverly Hills Cop.

Hot, Hot, Hot by Buster Poindexter
(released 1987; peaked #45 US Hot 100, #11 US Dance)
I’m hot — You’re hot — He’s hot — She’s hot
I’m hot — You’re hot — He’s hot — She’s hot
(Real hot) — (Real hot) — (Real hot) — (Real hot)
Ha-ha-ha – Oh Lord

Quite the big party song, this song may not really mean hot as in temperature, but it still fits how I’m feeling this evening.

Some Like It Hot by The Power Station
(released 1985; peaked #4 Canada, #6 US Hot 100, #7 Belgium)
Feel the heat burning you up, ready or not

Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on
Some feel the heat and decide that they can’t go on
Some like it hot, but you can’t tell how hot ’til you try
Some like it hot, so let’s turn up the heat ’til we fry.

Not quite sweltering and we’re not choosing to turn up the heat, but it’s hot and humid nonetheless.  Great Eighties song!
A Horse With No Name by America
(released 1972; peaked #1 US  Hot 100, #3 US Adult Contemporary & UK Singles)
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry

Our heat is hot, but our ground isn’t dry, which is a big part of the problem.  The humidity makes hiding in the shade sticky.
