#5

Peter Tosh "Coming In Hot"

- Is ther any other other way to cpome on a Top 5 about the heat? 

#4

The Power Station "Some Like It Hot" 

- Okay, this one is a pure 80's summer burner from the supergroup of the day. Almost forgot Robert Palmer's in this one and half of Duran Duran. 

#3

Sly & The Family Stone "Hot Fun In The Summertime"

- With so many songs about the heat, we had to have this classic...

#2

The Lovin' Spoonful "Summer In The City"

- Song gives me the chills...so maybe this is like that counter-intuitive advice to drink warm fluids when it's hot. "Hot time, summer in the city, back of my neck feelin' dirty and gritty..." that's exactly what I was thinking.

#1

Buster Poindexter "Hot Hot Hot"

- New York Dolls frontman finds a hit in this tune that is really not the sort of thing he does normally, but I'm glad he did it. There might not be another song that puts me more in the mood for a vacation... I'm out.
