    Here in Australia we call a REALLY hot day a 'scorcher'. A scorcher can turn a tar road into a slow flowing black creek.

    Here's a poignant Doug Kershaw song about working outside in the blazing hot elements.

    Here's a Capstain/Pumping Shanty that fits the theme rather well!

    One from up and coming folk singer Bob Dylan - Spanish Harlem Incident.
    "Gypsy girl the hands of Harlem cannot hold you to its heat
    Your temperature's too hot for taming, your flaming feet burn up the street'

    Here is an original about an elderly Irish couple who decide to try life in sunny Spain.

    It was born from a banjo tune that I was working on. I am terrible at remembering tunes, unless I put some words to them. So I put some lyrics to the A) part of the tune and then realised I had a vehicle for this week's theme. So, I switched gear and wrote this song. It follows the Irish tune structure of AABB rather than the standard Verse-Chorus-Verse we might expect in a pop song. I hope you like it.

    Tuesday morning (in California at least) dawns and we are up to 37 (I think) excellent entries. If Iíve missed your video please let me know and Iíll add it to the list.

    Thanks to all of you who have contributed so far. I wasnít sure how much room people would find to move around in the theme, but there have been a few surprises and everything has been extremely enjoyable.

    Donít be afraid to repeat a song if you find that it has already been played by someone else. Different versions are always interesting and most welcome.

    If you havenít contributed before and are thinking about joining the fun please do jump in. If you arenít sure how it works donít be afraid to ask. I think youíll find all of the Seasonistas happy to help get you rolling.

    Thanks again everybody for keeping this wagon train rolling.

    Well I've been given a surprise half day from work and my head's still spinning from last night. Only cure for that in an empty house is a heavy helping of distortion and some gratuitous solos.

    This is not the Hendrix song, it's by Kasabian. Never has a three word chorus been so hard to sing.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    This is not the song that I was looking for,said a wise old Jedi,
    but I'm glad that I found it !!

    Mississippi John Hurt is a discovery and this song is great.
    Played on Little Red. A Lazy Palm entry level box .
    Tuned aDF#B. Might do the Bessie Smith one later .

    I wonder how many seasonistas are old enough to remember the ink spots
