Hurricanes Are a Force to Be Reckoned With

There are few things meaner than the punch packed by a Category 5 hurricane. Winds in excess of 157 mph can cause catastrophic damage, leveling entire communities, placing lives on the line, and sending debris airborne. Poof! Gone. Even Category 1 hurricanes—with wind speeds of 74-95 mph—are a force to be reckoned with, considering that they can cause power outages, fallen trees, and both personal injury and property damage.

If a hurricane is headed your way, take heed of your meteorologist and either shelter in place or evacuate. As you do so, rely on this playlist of pop, rock, and country songs about hurricanes to keep you company.

1. "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by Scorpions

You can count on local radio stations to break out this go-to hurricane song before evacuation plans are in full swing with boarding up windows and loading the car. It's a 1984 metal favorite and the signature song of the German band Scorpions.

The lusty lyrics describe a man who is ready for love or anything that resembles it. On the hunt for a sexual partner, he is "ready to make it with someone I choose" and seeks to unleash all his pent-up energy. Because the narrator boasts of being such a virile man he stands prepared to rock his lucky lady "like a hurricane." (Oh, dear God. Run for shelter, girl.)

Sultry lyrics on songs like this prompted Tipper Gore and the other Washington Wives to petition the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to place parental advisory warning labels on music in 1985. The practice continues to this day.

2. "Hurricane" by Luke Combs

Having suffered a bad breakup, the man in this rousing country crossover song from 2016 had to be convinced by his buddies to go out for drinks. He knew that emotionally he was headed for stormy weather when his friends started chatting up his ex's friends.

Then his ex walked in, and he was a disaster:

The moon went hiding
Stars quit shining
Rain was dropping
Thunder 'n lightning
You wrecked my whole world when you came
And hit me like a hurricane
You hit me like a hurricane.

What did he think was going to happen? The weather forecast wasn't exactly sunny, if you know what I mean.

3. "Hurricane" by Thrice

The romance in this 2017 hard rock ditty seems doomed, even as the narrator struggles to hang on to the love that he and his partner share. The overarching tone is ominous as he recalls the early days of their love affair, likening it to her grasping a red rose and cutting her hand on the thorns.

As the dark storm looms overhead, he anticipates additional conflict between them but seeks to give shelter to the good thing they have. Those symbolic hurricane winds, representing the turbulence of their relationship, threaten to forcefully rip their bond apart in "a tidal wave of fear and pain."

4. "Hurricane" by Theory of a Deadman

Divorces, like natural disasters, are supposed to happen to other people. That's what the guy in this 2012 hard rock song thought until he got caught up in the ruins of a marital bust-up that felt like a hurricane had swept through his life. While the fierce winds stole the positive memories of his ex-wife, the lightning strikes of distrust painfully scorched the love they once shared. He's willing to endure additional psychological torment to get to a more positive place in his life.

5. "Hurricane" by The Fray

Some of us find ourselves dangerously attracted to lovers with ferocious energy and power, as if they're angry with the world. The guy in this 2014 alternative rock song is drawn to a small-statured lady who channels hurricane-force dynamism and thunders loudly through life, yelling and invoking fear. For all the issues that that girl must surely have, the narrator assumes he is the one who can fix her or at least be there to clean up her messes. Don't do it, Bud.

6. "Who'll Stop the Rain" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

The pouring rain at Woodstock in August 1969 was the inspiration for this 1970 folk-rock tune by CCR. It adopts a weather metaphor to depict the era's political strife:

As long as I remember
The rain's been comin' down
Clouds of mystery pourin'
Confusion on the ground.

In the song, the rain seems non-stop. Hurricanes are often associated with torrential downpours, often 6-12 inches. Storms that are slower moving typically bring more rain. "Who'll Stop the Rain" was highlighted by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."

7. "Hurricane" by The Band of Heathens

The Gulf Stream winds whip and moan as the Pontchartrain bridge sinks ever lower into the causeway. There's a foreboding tale here in this 2011 bluesy rock cover of "Hurricane," a threatening song that describes the assurance of a New Orleans old-timer. While a man from Chicago insists that The Big Easy will not outlast this storm, the old man boasts that he has survived many hurricanes. The lowest point in the city is approximately eight feet below sea level.

8. "Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season" by Kenny Chesney (featuring Jimmy Buffett)

Country singer Kenny Chesney dusts off this 1974 Jimmy Buffett ditty for a duet. The tropical-themed song featured a narrator who drinks his way through hurricane season (technically, June 1 to November 30) doing a whole lotta lounging around. He passes out in his hammock, strolls down to the bar for a break, then watches the developing storm from the beach. Squalls are brewing on the Gulf Stream, there are whitecaps on the ocean waves, and it's nearly time to close the shutters and go inside, undoubtedly to drink some more.

9. "Ridin' the Storm Out" by REO Speedwagon

If you haven't evacuated in time, then there's no choice but to hunker down and ride the hurricane out. This 1973 hard rock song starts with sudden guitars blaring, like the dangerously high winds themselves. However, the storm they're riding out in this song is a harsh winter blizzard in the mountains.

10. "Waiting for the Hurricane" by Chris de Burgh

As a hurricane takes shape, stranded Caribbean tourists grow anxious in this quick tempo 1981 pop song. The sea is roaring, and the lights go down. The fishing boats are safely tied up, and vacationers have their suitcases in hand trying to get off the island, but the last flight out has left. As winds pick up, it's obvious that no one is going anywhere tonight:

'Cause there ain't nowhere to hide,
Waiting for the hurricane.

11. "Hell or High Water" by KISS

In addition to high winds, hurricanes typically whisk in torrential downpours of 6-12 inches of rain. This results in inland flooding that wreaks havoc on the lives of all of those in the way.

The dude in this hard rock tune was left by his lover two days ago and now he feels like he's drowning in tears. The poor guy misses her so badly that he's losing sleep but is determined to win her back come hell or high water.

During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, about 80% of New Orleans was under as much as 20 feet of water. Over 15 million people were impacted in a variety of ways, and 1,833 lives were lost. Even today, 705 people have never been accounted for.

12. "The Tide Is High" by Blondie

Hurricane winds send the sea waters cresting to new heights, but that's okay because you're dauntless like the gal in this reggae-infused rock hit from 1980. She covets a man who is inundated with other romantic options. However, instead of giving up she doubles down in perseverance. Leave it to her to be the last girl standing. "The Tide Is High" was one of Blondie's four #1 hits.

13. "Hurricanes" by Dido

After a hiatus from the music industry, Dido reemerged with this electro-tinged pop track in 2018. In the hopeful love song, a woman describes her desire to face all of the "sound and the fury" that life has to offer. Rather than running away from the hurricane-like challenges that threaten to overwhelm the couple, she looks forward to facing life's difficulties and joy together.

14. "Blame It on the Rain" by Milli Vanilli

In the wake of a hurricane, you can blame a good portion of the destruction on the rain, like the sorry sucker who narrates this 1989 pop song. The tune was a #1 for lip-synching German duo Milli Vanilli. That was before they became exposed for not singing on their own records. (Session musicians sang their parts, and they even had their Grammy Award for Best New Artist revoked.)

The song's narrator regrets breaking up with his ex and seeks to win her back. Rather than accepting personal responsibility for letting her get away, however, he blames his bad choices on the rain. What a cop out.

15. "Hello Hurricane" by Switchfoot

This upbeat 2009 alternative rock song was inspired by the moving account of a woman who lost her leg during the Hurricane Katrina evacuation. Exemplifying personal grit, she said that she walked out of her old home and despite the loss of her leg, she was determined to triumphantly walk into her new one.

This song's narrator eyes the blood-red skies and senses there is an oncoming hurricane. With his windows and doors boarded up, he defiantly tells the hurricane that even if everything he owns disappears,

All your dead end fury is
Not enough.
You can't silence my love.

Indeed, hurricanes may splinter our homes. They may ruin our precious belongings. However, they cannot destroy the bonds of love that we share for one another.

16. "Storm Coming" by Gnarls Barkley

A menacing storm is on the horizon in this 2006 R&B/neo-funk number imbued with deep spiritual messages. The song is imparted from the perspective of a songwriter/ narrator who perceives that God speaks through him to powerfully communicate with the masses.

The impending hurricane conveys exciting, frightening, and uncomfortable truths. As such storms thrash about destructively, they draw people together, huddling together for mutual aid and support. The narrator insists that rather than questioning why (because these are unanswerable questions), it's more important to go about the business of life, living and dying.

18. "Here Comes the Rain Again" by Eurythmics

You'll be so tired of rain by the time the storm is over. Even in the absence of flooding, you'll feel waterlogged.

Rain can also symbolize feeling down, just as it does in this 1984 new wave song. A woman laments feeling depressed, confused, and disconnected from someone she had a former relationship with. She's trying to make sense of what's in his heart and mind and whether it's raining there too:

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you.

17. "After the Hurricane" by Jazmine Sullivan

Clouds loom large in her lover's eyes and then his tears start flowing like rain. The woman in this 2008 R&B song uses a hurricane as a metaphor for a turbulent breakup. As her lover delivers the bad news, she realizes that her heart is right in the path of destruction.

19. "I Feel Like I'm Drowning" by Two Feet

A hurricane's path is no place to be if you fear drowning because it's the water rather than the wind that presents the primary hazard. According to the National Hurricane Center, storm surge, rainfall flooding, high surf, and deaths just offshore (within 50 nautical miles) accounted for 88% of storm-related casualties over a five-decade period.

The guy in this 2018 alternative rock song fears that he's drowning at the hands of his toxic lover. When she's not around, his life is okay, but she's suspicious, scheming, and holds him down. She's slowly killing him, and he feels like he's drowning.

20. "Help!" by Beatles

Building damage, downed power lines, and toppled trees are just some of the destruction left by a hurricane. Communities will need help rebuilding broken lives, and it won't be easy:

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me?
Help me? Help me? Ooh

When John Lennon wrote this 1965 rock song, he was inspired not by weather but by the experience of the band's stressful overnight rise to global fame. The tune became a #1 hit in many countries, and Rolling Stone later honored it as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."

Hurricane Andrew was a Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that struck the Bahamas and Florida in August 1992. It caused 65 deaths and $26.5 billion in damage. Shown here is a devastated mobile home community.

      Yeah...hurricanes are expected and very much unwanted here in Florida. Although I have memories of them from my youth in Virginia..one quite unpleasant one tore the top off a huge tree, carried it over our house, and most kindly placed it on the ground. We were most thankful for that. Thanks for sharing these tunes...some are favorites of mine. Once again..stay safe and well. Angels are headed your way.ps

      Had my share of hurricanes. I like the rain, but like some of your singers, only in good measure. It's the wind that scares me. Yes, metaphorical hurricanes can be just as deadly, but they come and we'd better prepare as much as we can.

      Of course the Scorpions tune immediately came to mind when I saw the title of this playlist!

      My add would be Stevie Ray Vaughan "Texas Flood." (And he might also say that he "Couldn't Stand the Weather.")

      Hope the weather is beautiful and peaceful where you are. As I'm commenting, we've got some rainy stormy stuff rolling in. Take care!

      Love this stormy list. We used to live in a hurricane zone in the Keys, Miami and Tampa. Fondly remember many hurricane parties when we had no place else to go. This would have been a great playlist for those gatherings. I may have missed it here but Etta James' Stormy Weather is a good tune.

      Good morning Flourish, the thought of a hurricane is terrifying. At least, they come with some warning (not like earthquakes which we are prone to here). We don't get tropical storms here in the Pacific NW but still have had our fair share of windstorms (Google the Columbus Day storm of '62 which I still remember after all these years).

      This is a great list. I had no idea that there were so many songs with the same title. I guess that is because they are so upsetting--just like love. I'm glad you included Lena Horne's Stormy Weather.

      So far, we have been lucky in only suffering power outages in the heat of the summer during hurricanes and tropical storms that have come our way. Many people have lost their homes and possessions. Now that it is the hurricane season, we pay close attention to any warnings that come our way. I'm not surprised that this is a topic for songwriters.

      Living in the Atlantic Northeast, we can experience our fair share of hurricanes and tropical storms...and the season is now upon us. I have to say that Credence and Lennon and are my favs in this wonderful collection. As always, thank you for the wonderful music. Happy Sunday. :-)

      You was familiar always find the most unique topics for your articles. I was family with a bit mroe than half of the songs you listed. I have always like the Creedence song and I guess that says something about my age. LOL I enjoyed all of this music, as per usual. Have a great week, Flourish.

      I enjoyed this set, Flourish. We're 28 days into hurricane season and have a long stretch ahead of us. September is usually when the destructive hurricanes hit Florida. So far, I've been thru many, including Hurricane Andrew, and have come out unscathed. Thank my lucky stars!

      I really enjoyed the song by Band of Heathens. I've not heard of them before but love their sound. So much so, that I've Googled them to see what else they've done. I just may need to add them to my collection.

      You simply must add "Stormy Monday." It has been recorded a number of times. Not sure who recorded it first. Might have been B.B. King, but the version by Lee Michaels is the best I've heard. Easily the best organ rock solo. :)
