Summer Heat Music Play List

 Here is a hodge-podge DJ list for a hot night. Granted, there should be more lists that might be genre specific and perhaps a little bit more up-to-date, but here is a start with some of my old favorites.

  • “Heat Wave” by Martha and Vandellas
  • “Heat Wave” by Irving Berlin (We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave…)
  • “Smooth” by Santana
  • “Summer in the City” by Lovin’ Spoonful
  • “Summertime” by George Gershwin (recorded by Billy Holiday, Sam Cook and countless others)
  • “Hot Fun in the Summertime” by Sly and the Family Stone
  • “Summertime Blues” by The Who
  • “Hot Child in the City” by Nick Gilder
  • “Too Darn Hot” by Cole Porter (written for the movie ‘Kiss Me Kate’ in the 1950’s but the real classic was recorded by Ella Fitzgerald)
  • “Hot, Hot, Hot” by Buster Poindexter a.k.a David Johansen (originally by a calypso artist from the caribbean island of Montserrat named Arrow)
  • “Horse With No Name” by America
