Songs about Weathering the Storm
We all know that the power of hurricanes is a terrifying force that we, the human race, have to reckon with. Imagine the power of a hurricane with winds over 150 miles per hour, destroying everything in its path and killing thousands of people and animals. Probably it is impossible to imagine something more terrible than hurricanes of the 5th degree because they are responsible for enormous damage to all life on the Earth. Hurricanes can wipe out entire cities and countries, flood islands and archipelagos, and leave people one-on-one with the elements.
Why talk about hurricanes of degree 5, if even a small hurricane of degree 1 with wind force equal to 80-100 miles per hour can leave metropolitan cities without light, people without medicines, and vital products. Small hurricanes can destroy the economies of many developing countries. Due to global warming and the accelerated pace of natural resource extraction, the frequency and strength of hurricanes have increased, which is very bad for the planet. This is especially true for us Americans, as the U.S. has experienced dozens of major hurricanes and storms in recent years. If unfortunately, a hurricane is coming to your city, we recommend that you listen to all the requests of authorities and meteorologists, stay calm and be ready to evacuate at any moment. To cheer you up we have a list of the songs with the word hurricane in them you can listen to.
Creedence Clearwater Revival with the song “Who’ll Stop the Rain”
This song was ranked by Rolling Stone magazine, where the magazine praised the song about hurricanes and placed it in the top 500 best songs of all time. The tense political situation served to write this song. It was pouring rain at Woodstock in August 1969 and the composers of “Who’ll Stop the Rain ” decided to write a song in which they metaphorically describe the political strife and situation in the country of that era. In the storm song itself, the rain feels like it’s falling non-stop, there’s no end to it. Hurricanes are what bring heavy, torrential rains, and if the hurricane has a low speed, it can rain for weeks.
