I wonder sometimes if winter and summer are sworn enemies or secret lovers. A friend of mine always talked about how much he loved listening to "Heart of the Congos"and other super blissful, sunshiny dub records in the winter. It kind of fits, in a strange way. I often get weird winter-nostalgia in the summertime, and this song is about the vice-versa. My room-mate's cat went kinda wild this last summer and would be out in the sun all day, coming back inside from hunting delirious and deeply dehydrated. Have you ever seen a panting cat? It's really un-nerving. Panting dogs are pretty commonplace, but a crazy-eyed panting cat is really freaky.
