Adele – “Set Fire to the Rain“
The song “Set Fire to the Rain” was included on Adele’s 2011 album “21.”
Ultimately, it’s a song about freedom and being able to move on from the anguish of the breakup.
It’s a ferocious tune that captures the intensity of a storm. It’s no secret that Adele’s music is recognized for its ability to convey powerful emotions in a way that’s both beautiful and emotional.
“I lit the rain on fire.”
Moreover, I hurled us into the blazing furnace.
Something died when we fell because I knew it was the final time.
The Doors – “Riders on the Storm“
The Doors’ “Riders on the Storm” is another great storm-themed tune.
It’s one of the band’s best-known songs, and Jim Morrison’s lyrics are said to have been inspired by real-life serial murderers.
In spite of its gloomy subject matter, “Riders on the Storm” is an excellent soundtrack for stormy weather.
Rihanna – “Umbrella“
Rihanna’s Umbrella is unquestionably one of her most successful songs.
On Rihanna’s album “Good Girl Gone Bad” in 2011, the song topped the charts for 10 consecutive weeks.
According to the vocalist, the song is about shielding a loved one from something unpleasant, and the rain serves as a metaphor for that bad thing.
“Umbrella” is a classic pop song, regardless of its significance.
U2 – “Electrical Storm“
As a song on U2’s greatest hits compilation album, “Electrical Storm” represents the band’s signature sound and intensity.
The song’s words and tone, on the other hand, seem to capture the tense emotions associated with an electrical storm.
“I can’t stop thinking about you.”
But if the sky can shatter there must be some way back to love and only love,” I know that’s not enough.
Scorpions – “Rock You Like The Hurricane“
The Scorpions’ “Rock You Like The Hurricane” is unquestionably one of the all-time greats.
Upon its first release in 1984, the song became an instant smash, and it has all the hallmarks of a ’80s hard rock anthem to boot.
As a result, it’s easy to see why this is one of the Scorpions’ most recognizable songs.
Arctic Monkeys – “Crying Lightning“
This is another example of a storm-themed song that is of a different genre and mood.
It’s one of the modern country songs about storms by the American country group Little Big Town.
The lyrics of the song are sharp and they manage to capture the idea of a person feeling like a tornado: overwhelming, powerful, and furious.
“Thought you’ll change the weatherStart a little storm, make a little rainBut I’m gonna do one betterHave the sun until you prayI’m a tornadoLooking for a soul to take.“
Little Big Town – “Tornado“
In 2009, Arctic Monkeys released their third studio album, Humbug, which included the song Crying Lightning.
“Crying Lightning” is a wonderful illustration of Arctic Monkeys’ darker and more raw sound back then.
The song’s amusing lyrics, along with the song’s unique vibe, make it easy to get sucked in.
When it was raining on Sundays, you liked to irritate the ice-cream vendor by playing “Crying Lightning.” I also enjoyed your bizarre, twisted, and crazy hobbies.
Neil Young – “Like the Hurricane“
‘Like the Hurricane’ by Neil Young and Crazy Horse was released in 1977.
When Neil Young was unable to sing due to vocal chord surgery, he wrote this 8-minute composition.
In spite of this, he created an unforgettable love song.
When he says that his particular someone is like an eye of the cyclone, he’s referring to the sense of security and safety that person provides even when confronted with potentially dangerous situations.
“You’re a cyclone of energy.”
You have a serene look on your face, and it’s taking my breath away.
A place where the emotion of wanting to love you is still there “I want to love you yet I’m being blown away.”
Fleetwood Mac – “Storms“
It’s a Fleetwood Mac song that we tucked away for when the storm is over.
Because the song is said to be about the end of Stevie Nicks romance with Mick Fleetwood, it has a melancholy tone to it.
Additionally, the song is depicting the storm as a person’s personality: forceful, sometimes chaotic, and fierce.
„So, my buddy, let me try to say good-bye.
I’d like to leave you with a feeling of warmth, but I’ve never been a calm blue sea.
I’ve always been a whirlwind of a person.
Always a storm in the making.”
Duffy – “Rain on Your Parade“
As far as weather-related song titles go, “Rain on Your Parade” comes to mind.
Duffy’s soulful vocals and peppy lyrics make this a catchy, energetic tune with a lot of revengeful sentiments.
So here is evidence that storm-themed music need not be gloomy or depressive.
Raining on your parade? No, I’m not going to take it anymore.”
It will continue to pour on you until I have your attention.
