Playlist: A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out

This week in the incredibly true adventures of my life that can be turned into a quick ‘n easy playlist post, I’ve had the flu. I’ve spent some quality time with my blanket, sweating and shivering and staring at the ceiling in a semi delirious state, humming some of the many amazing songs in this world that reference extreme temperatures. Here are some of them.
