Broadjam Member Reviews

A verry nice voice and a professional arrangement. A good build up, starting with the piano first and than the orchestra, really nice and smooth and easy to listen to.Good job!!

    - stampa

Excellent tone to the male performer's voice. The music is very reminiscent of Louis Armstrong and should work well in jazz clubs and for jazz radio. The lyrics were excellent and very cleverly written. Also found the song to be very original. Taking something like the weather and making it the theme of a song is not a thing that very many of us think about so kudos to the composer for thinking out of the box.

Lyrics

We've been movin' kinda slow
It seems
It's a temperature thing
How I wish it was spring
Or autumn
With its football air
But it's not, so we're coastin'
'Cause baby, it's roastin'
Toastin'

It's hotter than hades
It's tough on old ladies
It's a Scorcher outside
You can join my parade
To seek some sycamore shade
Before our senses get fried
With our backs to a tree
We'll sip some sweet, cloudy tea
Toast this mean summer sun
While we pray for a breeze
To knock the heat to its knees
Gotta be a hundred and one
Plus one, plus one

I've contemplated moves
To cooler climes
But I know from the past
That this heat just can't last
So, copin' is the best I can do
I'll, suspend my debatin'
While patiently waitin'
Evaporatin'

It's hotter than hades
etc.
