    Default Season #325 - Feeling Hot Hot Hot

    Spring has sprung here in the northern hemisphere (at least in the low- to mid-latitudes) and we have already had a few hot days here in the Bay Area. And in the desert the mercury is already pushing triple-digits. It got me thinking, we’ve had a season (hosted by Myrna) about cold, but we have never had a season about heat.

    This week pleas help ring in the beginning of (northern hemisphere) summer by bringing songs that have heat/hot in the title or lyrics. Other warm end of the thermometer words (e.g., fire, inferno, etc.) are also acceptable. Or, if you have not yet had your fill of the Mojave radio station from Fallout, play a song about the desert, any desert. As long as it is a hot desert (Sahara, Mojave, Sonoran, etc.) and not one of those cold deserts (Antarctic Dry Valley, etc.).

    Regular rules:
    Season runs Sunday to Sunday
    Multi-tracking ok but ukulele should be front and center
    Mention season 325 in your intro or text in the video
    Videos must be newly recorded for this season.

    Of course originals are welcome, dealing with either of the themes above.

    Please limit to 1 song/day to start. Depending on how things are going I will open it up later in the week.

    There will be prizes, drawn at random at the end of the season.

    Anyone who has been lurking for a while is more than welcome to join in the fun. I promise we don’t bite.

    Remember there is still a little more than a day left in Ryan’s fallout season. I’ll post a playlist to YT once the entries start rolling in.

    Thanks everyone, I’m looking forward to hosting again.

    Now with more PLAYLIST: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...up3WOO0ymWRnTA

    Does "hot" need to mean hot in the ambient temperature sense? I ask because, in most songs it has more the connotation of sexy, randy or feverish, and that doesn't seem quite in the spirit of the theme, particularly if other words suggesting actual heat don't qualify.
    Good questions Ubelele. It doesn’t have to be specifically “hot” or “heat”, but it should be temperature based. Words associated with heat, like fire, inferno, etc., are eligible.

    I’ve clarified in the intro post.

    Now, I've only been married for a few years (and my wife is going through the opposite of menopause right now) but I think the answer is one shouldn't

    This one only briefly mentions the heat (40C, not F) but everything else that happens in the story is either aided or exacerbated by the heat.

    Also a good choice because it not only name drops our host, but would also make a fitting future YouTube title for our very own Rob.




    It's also a scorching bank holiday weekend here so I will be doing a spot of gardening myself this afternoon - hopefully without the complications
