Lobal warming: a heatwave playlist

Is it finally cooling down? Will there be some respite this weekend? Snakes alive, I hope so. In the meantime, I have wakefully and overheatedly indulged in a typical late-night YouTube wild goose chase for some favourite tunes to express the fire within. Hope you enjoy the playlist.
