41 Songs That Keep the Heat Wave Going

, , , , , , ,


The heat wave that’s been plaguing the U.S. for the past week has finally broken, but things aren’t cooling down any time soon. For Music Monday this week, we’ve compiled a list of your favorite tracks that send temperatures soaring.

We welcomed all plays on “hot,” “fire,” “sun,” “burn” and “sweat,” which allowed Coolio’s “Too Hot,” Fiona Apple’s “Hot Knife,” The Trammps’ “Disco Inferno” and Caribou’s “Sun” to all exist peacefully in the same playlist.

Songs such as Yacht’s “Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)” and Disclosure’s “When a Fire Starts to Burn” will make you dance in any temperature, while Fleet Foxes’ “Sun It Rises” and Sun Araw, M. Geddes Gengras and The Congos’ “Sunshine” are there for when it’s time to lay down and take a break.

Naturally, Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” is included for those times you need to tell everyone on the street, “It’s hot.”

Don’t save this playlist for a rainy occasion — the next time there’s a heat wave, blast these songs to help you power through those hot, sweaty days. Only music can make the sweltering summer heat more bearable. (Also, pools.)

If we’re missing your favorite sizzling song, share it with us on Spotify, and we’ll add it to the playlist.

How to Share Your Song With Us

1. To follow Mashable on Spotify, click here. If a popup window asks if you want to launch an external application, say yes. It just means that the browser is opening up Spotify.

2. Follow Mashable, or just send us music by clicking “Send Music.”

3. To send music while browsing tracks in Spotify, follow the MashableHQ account. Then right click (ctrl + click) on the song you want to send, and click the “Share…” option.

4. By default, Spotify pulls up the “Post to Feed” option. Instead, select the “Send to Friend” tab, type in “MashableHQ,” and hit the blue “Send” button.

If “MashableHQ” doesn’t show up when you’re trying to send a track, make sure you’re following the account. If you’re still having problems sending a song after that, let us know in the comments section, below, and we’ll help you fix the problem. Enjoy the tunes!
