95 Songs of Summer, #52 - "Too Darn Hot" (1990)

OK, it's official - we're melting in Sacramento.  So I'm going to deviate a bit from the usual formula to feature a song that probably wasn't released during the summer, and certainly was never a fixture on the radio.  However, it is from the quite excellent "Red Hot + Blue" benefit album, which featured modern groups doing their own twists on classic Cole Porter songs - all to raise money for AIDS research and relief.  So it may not be a bonafide "summer song," but it certainly fits with the theme and is a nice little change of pace.

So from 1990, today we have Erasure, with "Too Darn Hot."
