Happy Music Monday! You know what they say, April comes in like a lion and- oh, well, they WILL say that soon, thanks to climate change issues. And speaking of climate change, today Scott's gonna take a good, hard look at songs about the weather. Join him, won't you?

Crowded House - Weather With You

 

It's interesting how often the weather is used as a metaphor for love. Or maybe, that shouldn't be so surprising. Emotions can be calm, stormy, lovely or horrid. Maybe we're just little weather events that thing they're people. Whoa, man. Whoa.

More weather songs on the way. See you after the jump!

The Waitresses - Go Make The Weather

 

Weather's seen as something far beyond our control. We can build skyscrapers and bridges, but we can still only say "there's an 85% chance it won't rain on Saturday!" Someone who can make the weather? Why, they'd be unto a GOD! And certainly able to handle the stresses of day-to-day life better than us.

10,000 Maniacs - Like The Weather

 

Weather also can be two things at once. Someone who knows how to read all the secret subtexts can find a deep meaning into the shape of the clouds on the horizon. Others? They might just find they give a little extra beauty to a sunset. Deep, isn't it?

Lena Horne - Stormy Weather

 

And then there are those storms. Scary? Perhaps. Damaging? From time to time. But those storms can also be lovely, even as they clear out the broken things that just aren't able to survive.

The Weather Girls - It's Raining Men

 

C'mon, you knew it was gonna show up at some point.

Plenty more weather songs to post, so GET ON IT, PEOPLE! Let us also just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. See you next week.

A bunch of rain songs:

Creedence Clearwater Revival: "Who'll Stop the Rain" and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?"
"Here Comes the Rain Again" by the Eurythmics
"Rainy Days and Mondays" by the Carpenters
"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" by B.J. Thomas

And after the rain is done, there's sun--"Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles

Now I'll have "It's Raining Men" stuck in my head (I'm not complaining). Ginger spice (Geri Halliwell) did a cover, video is worth a look if you're into fit women dancing around in a sports bra and bikini briefs.

The barometric pressure has no relevance to me.

I was going to comment that how can something called "Music Monday: Weather Songs" NOT include "Rainy Day and Mondays"?

What, no "Riding the Storm Out" by REO Speedwagon? For shame.
