Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

In case you haven't noticed, it's effing hot out there. But rather than run from it (although we are sitting in air conditioned rooms, for the most part) we're going to embrace this sweltering weather with some celebratory music. Here's Martha and the Vandellas with "Your Love is Like a Heatwave"

This is the official video for Hot Hot Heat's single, "Talk to Me, Dance with Me"
