The Sounds Of Summer- Day 29 of 95- “Heat Wave”- Martha and The Vandellas. I was hoping not to play this song this summer- not that its a bad song- its a great one but I was hoping for a nice cool summer. Up until now it really hasn’t been too hot- but today it is supposed to be a high of 93 and Saturday 94. It won’t be much of a heat wave though- Monday 80 and Tuesday a high of 79. I guess I can handle a few days of heat.

Martha and The Vandellas took this single to #4 on the Hot 100. It was released as a single in July 1963. Linda Ronstadt’s cover in 1975 went to #5, but the “go to’ version is Martha and The Vandellas. The song was written by the Motown hit makers- Holland-Dozier-Holland. Maybe it’s just me but I’d take Martha and The Vandellas every day of the week over The Supremes- whose songs all sound the same. “Heat Wave”, “Dancing In The Streets”, “Nowhere To Run” all better than anything The Supremes ever did.

    • I don’t know how long your area is going to be in the heat- but looks like 2 days here. I can handle that- it will be in the 70’s here on Monday..

    • It started yesterday with temperatures in the high 90s and is forecast to top today and tomorrow with highs exceeding 100. Looks like on Monday we’re going back to arctic weather with temperatures in the mid 80s!😆

      As long as our central air doesn’t fail, we will be fine. Luckily our system is only a few years old, so knock on wood!

    • Hope it all holds up- at least its not one of those times when you see the 10 day forecast and there is no let up in sight.. I am going to a ballgame Tuesday night- mid 70’s I can deal with that.. until then I will be staying inside!
