Question of the Week: November 12th, 2013

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, by Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot, is based on the true story of a November shipwreck on Lake Superior, and immortalizes the “gales of November.” Do you have a favorite song about weather, seasonal or no?

    One of my favourites was “Christmas never made it into Darwin” which was about Cyclone Tracy that hit Darwin on Christmas Eve evening in 1974. Sad song but powerful, first time I heard it I was too young to get the significance.

    The Cult’s “Rain” wins by default, as I can think of no other contenders (I’m sure you can guess what it’s about).

    There’s a song by a German folk singer from when I was a kid that was about how brilliant rainy weather is and why everyone hates it – the singer says he’s just glad weather still exists at all. 😀

    It’s not exactly about weather, but “A Little Fall of Rain” from the musical Les Miserables was the first to come to mind (which is no surprise given my username, haha).
