On the Chinese Calendar the start of Spring is February 4 for the year 2003.

I feel "It's too darn hot" is a bit much. Laughing
(I have a little obsession with the summer heat, with a particular memory of the song.)

Hey, satt! Thanks for the Chinese solar calendar info. Looks like I was born between Chushu (Limit of Heat) and Bailu (White Dew).

So, "It's too darn hot" is too much, eh? Well, it was either that or Buster Poindexter's (AKA David Johansen) "Hot Hot Hot". Not too many songs with "warm" in the title.

So, you must be Leo or Virgo, which is also a solar concept.
"On the sunny side of the street" is solar, too.

In fact I am a Virgo, too. ("It never entered my mind.")

"My old flame"
