What Rocks You Like a Hurricane?

Posted by on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 10:37 AM

Aah! Our our own Megan Seling is stuck in New York, about to face off Hurricane Sandy. GET HOME SAFE, MEGAN! I've had the Scorps' in my head all morning.

What songs make you think about storms and hurricanes?

Right now:

Sandy, the aurora's rising behind us,
The pier lights our carnival life forever

That OutKast song where a girl's trying to use the phone during a thunder-and-lightning storm and she gets yelled at by her grandmother.

Throwaway Street Puzzle by Fairport Convention w/ Sandy Denny sharing vocals.
"They'll move you mister, just like a hurricane moves a tree."

bonus Richard and Linda Thompson

Just The Motion
"Blown by a hundred winds, knocked down a hundred times
Rescued and carried along. Beaten and half-dead and gone
And it's only the pain that's keeping you sane
And gives you a mind to travel on
Oh the motion won't leave you, won't let you remain, don't worry
It's a restless wind and a sleepless rain, don't worry
'Cause under the ocean at the bottom of the sea
You can't hear the storm, it's as peaceful as can be"

I'm with #5, just listen to the entire Aquemini album.

there's always Bob Dylan's A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall. Or any and all Sandy Denny, in this case. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2xODjbfY…

Ben Harper's Black Rain is about the response to Katrina, which keeps being mentioned, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgscOzOkx…

And I always think of Milli Vanilli http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB0Le3oM1…
Be warned though. Blame It On the Rain is a TERRIBLE song.

Nobody has affection for some newer stuff? An entire Neko Case album, for instance? ;)
