Music Monday: Heat Wave

For those of you who haven't been hit by the past week's incredible cold of winter, please count yourself lucky, send us some sunshine and just enjoy the music. For anyone who's seen their local temperature go below zero degrees Fahrenheit, maybe this Heat Wave video will warm us all up.... an oldie but goodie from Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.

Whenever I'm with him
Something inside
Starts to burning
And I'm filled with desire,
Could it be the devil in me?
Or is this the way love's
supposed to be?


It's like a heat wave
It's burning in my heart
I can't keep from burning
It's tearing me apart

Whenever he calls my name
So softly and plain
Right then, right there, I feel that burning flame
Has high blood pressure
got a hold on me?
Is this the way love's supposed to be?


Sax Solo.................

Sometimes I stare in space
Tears all over my face,
I can't explain it, don't understand it,
I ain't never felt like this before
Now this funny feeling has me amazed
Don't know what to do, my head's in a haze,
It's like a heat wave.

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Ha ohhh yeah

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
ohhh yeah

I feel it, burning, right here in my heart,
Don't you know it's like a heat wave

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Don't you know it's like a heat wave?
Burning right here in my heart.

So funny! I thoughts about this for a moment last week. I was freezing, but I cannot complain, I live in Vegas and its not as cold as my Friends are experiencing in the East Coast. Great selection :)
