Hot town, summer in the city ...

Our Tropical Heatwave continues .... "hot and humid nights to be expected" ... We re being told to stay indoors, not to jump into rivers, to keep hydrated (thats easy, I just drink lots of cold liquids - I particularly recommend the Stella Atrois new French cidre) as we see gasping commuters coping with those hot trains and buses. Cool fresh rain is promised for tomorrow after some summer storms - bring it on, the flowers and plants will love it ...
Summery songs? How about: "Sunny Afternoon" by The Kinks / "Summer in the City" - the Loving Spoonful / any version of "Summertime", maybe Ella's or Nina Simone's / Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning" or "Night in the City" + "The Hissing of Summer Lawns" / Nelly's "Hot in Herre" (produced by Pharrell, whose "Happy" certainly is a must / The Beatles "Here Comes The Sun" / Bob Marley's "Sun is Shining" .... thats enough to be going on with.
