Whoa. I thought it was hot a month ago. Today is Texas frying-pan hot. Time for some more seasonal music.

The Zombies say “It’s the time of the season for loving…”

Paul Robeson sings “…and the living is easy, fish are jumpin’…” but not when it’s this hot.

Cole Porter wrote and Stacey Kent sings,

“…when the thermometer goes way up
and the weather is sizzling hot
Mister Adam for his madam is not
cause it’s too darn hot, it’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot.”

I agree with the latter, it is just too darned hot!

I hate hot weather. I despise the summer. But, crap, what can I do? Without air conditioning, there is just no getting around it, even in Seattle. So, let us proceed to the Serenity Prayer:

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

The point being, “accept the things I cannot change.” No matter how hard I scrunch up my eyebrows and hunch my shoulders, it is not going to get cooler outside until the effing sun goes down.

Instead, let us focus on some summertime tunes, one after the other. Starting with the Kinks who are lazing on a sunny afternoon. The Kinks tend to show up at many of my blogs.

Now, Mungo Jerry In the Summertime:

Kick it up a notch with the Lovin Spoonful…

Then drive it up as high as it can go with Blue Cheer, whoa!

And let us bring it on home with Mr. Steve Fromholtz and the Texas Trilogy. “‘Cause it’s hotter than hell when the sun hits the land…”
