What is the Best Song about a Storm?

26 Aug
It’s raining sideways!

I live on Long Island, a little finger jutting out of New York City into the Atlantic Ocean. This weekend, Hurricane Irene will menacingly attack New York and wind gusts on Long Island may shoot up to 90 m.p.h. I have never even driven my car 90 m.p.h. I cannot comprehend these wind speeds. Next time you see us world, Long Island will be embarking on a new mission in northern Canada after Irene picks us up and tosses us over the Canadian border like a wet towel. Okay, hyperbole aside, this seems that it will be the worst hurricane to hit NYC in perhaps a century. The supermarkets are flooded with individuals preparing for the apocalypse. We’re New Yorkers. We overexaggerate like crazy.

Anyway, the hurricane got me thinking. What are some good songs to melodize this damage-inducing event. And then I thought, hey, why not ask you, the reader, to help me pick the greatest song about a storm. Yeah, you know what it is. Poll time. Get out your ballots. Here we go. What is the best song about a storm? I really tried putting this list together with songs only about actual storms, but the metaphorical storm, rain, and hurricane got the best of me. Please, provide your own feelings on best storm songs as well!
