Do you think of Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe - From the 1959 movie Some Like It Hot
Or Do you think of the song - " Some like it Hot" recorded by Power Station. Power Station was a 1980's group which featured singer Robert Palmer, bassist John Taylor and guitarist Andy Taylor of Duran Duran; and former Chic drummer Tony Thompson. Bernard Edwards, also of Chic, was involved on the studio side as recording producer. Interestingly, the band was formed in 1984 during a break in Duran Duran's schedule (Catch that Jane?). Further, Power Station was named after The Power Station recording studio where their album was recorded.
I learned during this post that Robert Palmer is no longer with us - Palmer, who made his home in Lugano, Switzerland for his last 15 years, died in Paris, France in 2003 of a sudden heart attack at the age of 54. Way too young! He is interred at the cemetery in Lugano.
I'll admit, when I think of Palmer, I'm reminded of the following:
Yeah, you got it! The Addicted to Love video of the 80's. Was that hot or what?
But mostly, I'm also reminded of the lyrics to a song by Palmer and Power Station:
Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on
Some feel the heat and decide that they can't go on
Some like it hot, but you can't tell how hot 'til you try
Some like it hot, so let's turn up the heat 'til we fry
Sappy I know - but catchy. Especially the part about turning up the heat 'til we fry!
