The Midweek Hop - Feeling Hot Hot Hot

A weekly musical feature inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round'
'Balami I200' 1957 Jukebox
'Balami I200' 1957 Jukebox

This weeks theme is...Feeling Hot Hot Hot
Inspired by the current UK heatwave!
1. Summertime by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong

Lazy, languid, long sunny days...
'Summertime' from the musical 'Porgy and Bess' was released in 1957. 

2. (Love Is Like A) Heatwave by Martha and the Vandellas

Hot enough to have a fever?
'(Love Is Like A) Heatwave' entered the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1963 reaching Number 4. 

3. In The Summertime by Mungo Jerry

Not sure the lyrics of 'Have a drink, Have a drive' should be taken literally!
'In The Summertime' entered the chart on 6th June 1970 reaching Number 1. 

Happy listening!
