Ok, so if you haven’t been following the blog you might not know what the heat test is. Basically, it’s the Summer anthem litmus test. And it’s really easy, here’s how you do it:
1. Put the song in question on a cd or your phone
2. Start car, roll windows down, press play

Every year brings a different vibe, and this year has already had some strong candidates, but I’m still waiting to crown mine. In the meantime, here are some songs that would go great on any memorial day bbq playlist:
