I think we had one of the hottest Julys in history here with more than 32°C - 35°C almost every day (that's 90F - 95F) and no rain for three weeks. Since we aren't in Madrid or the Death Valley that's quite extreme... (and we don't have a Siesta either ;))

but things are getting back to normal - we should get some 28°C (82F) today...

^ Hey Dappled! I didn't know you were from Sweden :)

and I thought Edna and me were the only "Mainland" Europeans here... (Jag Ælskar Sverige :grin:)

Well, I was guity of not reading your Post correctly Dappled. I thought "how wouldn't 'How Much I Feel' have made a Top Ten with 48 points", but you've shown where they placed! Thanks for your research. I think Van the Man will make it this time.

If he doesn't make it this time, that'll be twice this group has committed a crime.

I'm with you RonJon. It may be hotter than Hadies, but it sure beats February in West Virginia. We had a heat index today of 105. I actually made it out to the pool and as long as you were in the water it was ok. As soon as you got out the sweat starts to pour out of you. If I lived near the ocean I would take you up on catching a wave.

Hi Ron. I'm 'acquiring' a couple of songs I don't know before I vote. Also I'm listening to a few other tracks I haven't heard for a while.

With the heatwave, someone should have nominated Surfin' U.S.A.; it probably would have made #1. I have my 'Motown' Double CDs here at the moment, but I could always go and get my 'Best Of The Beach Boys' (after Being With You - Smokey Robinson. What a great song).

:)

Surf's definitely up. I'm going to Atlantic City then Wildwood Crest next week for the surf. The family called from the shore today and said the water felt great. Beach Boys will do it for me. Do It Again maybe..

Enjoy Mate. :thumbsup:

Love Do It Again. It was a huge Hit here in 1968, especially in my home City of Brisbane. We have the best beaches in Australia here in Queensland *, but we're the furtherest Capital City from the surf! Only an hour's drive North or South though. * That will stir up some of my fellow Australians.
