Soundtracks For Summer: Hot, Hot, Hot

Part 31 of my ongoing "Soundtracks For Summer" series.

Now where did the time go?! Crap, it's still summer, time to write about another song!

Today we cover that famous one hit wonder by the great Buster Poindexter. Who who ever expect David Johansen from the New York Dolls would have a meltdown and just put out a weird salsa hit like this? Well whatever, it's a damn catchy song.

And it's perfect for summer, what with the repetition of "hot" and all. I honestly don't know why I haven't covered it sooner, even during that brief period where I was updating more than once a month.

If a song that just screamed "PARTY" was needed immediately, people usually went to this one. Whether you're having a raucous get-together or more likely just pretending to have one, this song just encapsulates fun during a warm night while brightly colored drinks are being strewn about. The fires being twirled by nonexistent jugglers are chasing bugs away, dazzling everyone into a stupor because, fuck, you're partying and nothing's gonna stop you.

Despite the video clearly being filmed in New York City (I spot a McDonald's in the background there), I'm just being reminded of my childhood vacations in Florida when I hear this. It was hot, I'm waiting in line at Disney World, and I want to have some fun. I really want to go back there, haven't been since 2001. I need to stop looking at other people's vacation videos and getting sad you guys.

But back to the song at hand, there's limbos going on! Thanks to this song people are actually enjoying it! It's weird how people can get in the mood do any stupid thing during a party, that's how powerful this song is. Does anyone actually limbo anymore? I don't think I can. My back isn't what it used to be. Great, now I'm sad, yet in a good partying mood again. Thanks Buster.
