The rain is finally gone, the flowers are blooming and it’s beginning to look a lot like…summer! We know it’s not officially our favorite season until June 20th but the temperature is starting to climb and when every day is sun-drenched and requires shorts and sandals, it’s not a crime to call it summer a lil early. In celebration, we asked you your favorite songs about the hot hot heat. Here are our favorites:
“It’s gettin’ hot in herre / (So hot) / So take off all your clothes / (Ohh)”
It’s a mystery to us why Nelly spelled “here” with two r’s in this song’s title. Maybe it was so hot that he got confused? Don’t know if we condone taking off ALL your clothes at the club, but in the comfort of your own home we think it’s cool. If you don’t have A/C sometimes you just have to!
“Well, I’m hot blooded, check it and see / Got a fever of a hundred and three”
We get that Foreigner is trying to say they’re hot-blooded like animals and they’re all fierce and passionate and stuff, but if you really have a 103 degree fever, you should go to the hospital. Please.
“Can’t tan pon it long, naw eat no yam, no steam fish, nor no green banana / But down in Jamaica we give it to you hot like a sauna”
The concept of this song and video may be that Sean Paul can keep you warm even when it’s cold out, but that doesn’t mean this song is purely seasonal. Plus, if it’s still cold where you live, dancing to this fast beat will warm you right up.
