“Some Like The Heat” — the Miami Heat Song
WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THE HEAT? That — or a variation of that — is the question people have been asking themselves for months on months on months. This video doesn’t answer that question, but it does ask the question in an awesome way that involves Power Station’s 1985 mega-smash “Some Like It Hot”. If you don’t remember Power Station, they were a somewhat super group composed of John and Andy Taylor from Duran Duran, Tony Thompson from Chic, and Robert Palmer, who was from Robert Palmer. Giving them full supergroup status might be stretching it, only because neither Eric Clapton nor any of the guys from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, or Mudhoney were involved.
Anyway, this song kicks ass, and not just because Mike Miller’s monkey and the monkey that used to chillax on Shawn Kemp’s back are in it. It kicks ass because it’s so timely, Morris Day is considering changing his band’s name to “The 30 Minutes Late” out of respect. Last season when LeBron, D-Wade, and that other dude lost to an old German and an old Kidd and a tiny Puerto Rican and Tyson “Who’s the Afterthought Now, Bitch?” Chandler and some guy who makes reality TV shows about women he doesn’t have sex with (hell yes Matrix, some girl better snatch you up fast because you are a catch that should not be immediately released just because Tyson Chandler is better looking), everybody was like “Hey, it’s their first season playing together, they’re still trying to find an identity and build their bench”. But if they don’t win it all this year, THEY ARE SCREWED FOR ALL ETERNITY. Or at least until next year when they bring in Erick Dampier to provide a reliable presence in the steam room, and maybe Peja to extend the defense. Hey, it worked for the Mavs!
In other words, The Decision has already been made: you’re going to watch this at least seven rings. Or seven times, whichever comes first.
