Music For a Heatwave
As we're set for record temperatures for a July day today, I thought I should raid my music for appropriately themed music to share. I discovered, to my horror, that I had no music by hit 70s group Heatwave, and neither did I have Marylin Monroe's 'Heatwave'.
Having ruled those out, I then looked for some of the most stereotypical titles associated with this weather, and so I bring to you 6 tunes of varying coolness for this hottest of summer days!
Sandra – In the Heat of the Night [Buy 'The Essential Sandra']
Billy Idol – Hot in the City [Buy 'The Greatest Hits]
Suzanne Vega – 99.9F [Buy '99.9F']
Stereophonics – Lying in the Sun [Buy 'Just Enough Education to Perform']
Doves – Catch the Sun [Buy 'Lost Souls']
Chicane – Low Sun [Buy 'Behind the Sun']
If anyone has any more suggestions please add them as comments!

Meet the Contributors: Helen Ryan
Even though I've already posted my first entry – I must obviously fill in the required paperwork…
Name: Helen Ryan
Number one in UK when I was born: Duran Duran – The Reflex
First album bought: Erm, it was a long long time ago, and I suspect it was Jason Donovan – Ten Good Reasons
First gig attended: The Corrs at Wembley Arena with my Dad. A pretty average gig really.
Favourite album: Depends a lot on my mood. Quite often whatever’s currently playing. Hmm, Suzanne Vega – Solitude Standing
Favourite song: Again it depends a lot on my mood, but I’m gonna go with Sarah McLachlan – Possession
Favourite gig: Live 8, or is that cheating?
Favourite band: Depends a lot on my mood, there’s a surprise for you.
Favourite genre: World Music, Chill out, I’ll eat a bit of any cake though (unless it has nuts in)
The band you like but are embarassed about/feel is a little out of place in your collection: Nothing is out of place in my collection it spans System of a Down to Leonard Cohen to Hans Zimmer to Ella Fitzgerald to Deepak Chopra. Wait a minute, I have Leonard Cohen?
Number of CDs bought since 1st January 2006: None, I believe that birthdays are the time for the receiving of such things!
What musical event would you most like to see happen: Eurovision winners Sir Cliff and Lordi dueting. That would make me laugh.
Musical hero: Kylie Minogue. Let it rest at that.
Music's biggest enemy/ies in my opinion are: Musical elitists who refuse to try music outside of their genre. People who make stereos without turntables – you are the reason that I use a stereo only a couple of years younger than I am.
