HOT STUFF! “We’re havin’ a heatwave, a tropical heatwave...” I was going to pose the questions as to who sang it first, who made it more famous the second time, in what movies, and who wrote it, but all you have to do these days is look it up on the internet - way too easy! For those of you who do, check out the lyrics - pretty racy stuff for 1938 and even 1954!
