Music and Lyrics About the Wind

Many people will agree that songs with the word "wind" in the title aren't always about the weather. Lyricists usually use wind as a metaphor to reflect someone's mood. From Bob Dylan to Elton John, songwriters have used the concept of wind in their songs many times in various ways.

Moreover, the changing winds in different seasons can evoke different emotions. For example, a lyricist usually refers to a painful situation by comparing it with cold winds blowing in winter. On the other hand, they can use wind to convey a sense of romance by comparing it with the cool breeze blowing during spring and autumn.

Many Emotions in a Single Word

It is surprising to see how one word can emanate so many emotions. Rough wind blowing during a storm may represent a feeling of uncertainty or a rough mood. The beauty of the song and how the lyricist uses the word "wind" depend on how you perceive its meaning. To you, "The Wind Cries Mary" may pull at your heartstrings because of its heartbreaking lines. But to someone else, the same lines may represent a different emotion.

The beauty of art—in this case, writing lyrics—is how different people perceive the same word differently. A lyricist may use wind to evoke a feeling of togetherness, but the entire song may have an undertone of separation to someone else.
