Originally posted at Voices on the Square, a new blog in the sphere featuring News, Information, and Fun!Howdy howdy howdy everybody! Yessir, it's Tuesday evening so you know what time it is! Yes, thank gawd - it's time to leave all the bad news and politics behind and escape into our favorite tunes instead!
Well, I am in the direct path of Isaac as of right now. I'm putting this together Monday night instead of Tuesday, cuz I'm not sure I will have power Tuesday night. So if you don't see me in the comments, I lost power, but I'll be here if I do have it. And that's my inspiration for tonight's theme!
The theme tonight is songs about hurricanes and related weather conditions and terms. They can be songs directly referencing hurricanes or weather conditions, or even associated terminology like pressure. They can also be off of albums with any of those in the title or by artists with any of those in their names.
So what are your favorite songs about hurricanes and related weather conditions?
Come below the kosquiggle for a few of mine!
Also, one quick note: In an effort to try to cut the upload time, if you can remember, when you go to embed in the comments, you can change the size to a smaller one, like 350 width. Maybe this will help. If it doesn't, back to the drawing board. And no worries if you don't want to or don't remember - no big! :D
First, where I am located. The map is from the NHC's interactive Isaac path map. The black line is the projected path of Isaac's eye. The rest is self explanatory. Supposed to be hurricane strength when it goes over.
*Updated* The eye is now supposed to pass to our west, which puts us on the bad side of Isaac; the good news is Isaac is not a very strong and developed storm.
Now onto the music!
The Sky is Crying:
Rock You Like a Hurricane:
When the Levee Breaks:
And one more in the tip jar!
