Heatwave Playlist

PHEW! July’s Heatwave theme is more appropriate than ever today. We’ve compiled a list of 5 sun-seeking tunes that’ll make you think you’re sitting by the pool sipping a piña colada.

1. Martha & the Vandellas – Heatwave

From Motown hunnies Martha & the Vandellas way back in ’63, this month’s namesake.

2. Jungle – The Heat

Moving on seventy years to 2013, here’s the song that inspired a new generation of synchronised roller-skaters (with help from two members of the High Rollaz UK Skate Crew).

3. Heatwave – Boogie Nights

Jump back now to ’77, to the original disco divas. Less cocktail sipping and more shape throwing with this gem.

4. DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith – Summertime

This won the freshest duo in Bel-Air a Grammy in 1992, not to be sniffed at.

5. Sly & the Family Stone – Hot Fun in the Summertime

Sly Stone and his band of San Franciscan sass machines.
