With Extra Chill being a music blog and all, I decided it would be appropriate to gather a collection of songs to listen to during a hurricane. Originally I wanted to just write an article about the top 10 hurricane songs, but I got carried away and ended up making an entire hurricane playlist. The playlist is in a hand-picked order and is made to be listened to front-to-back, but you can feel free to shuffle if you so please. I tried to capture the whole spectrum of feelings associated with an approaching hurricane, from the anticipation and anxiety that precedes it, to rockin’ out while the hurricane rages around you, to the clearing and sunny skies that follow.
I pulled from a wide variety of genres for this one, from alternative rock to classic rock, to pop and even some punk and emo. Some of my favorites include “Play Crack the Sky” by Brand New, “In Bloom” by Nirvana, “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin, and “It’s Rainin’ Men” by The Weather Girls. Throw this on and crack open a cold one before you lose power and they aren’t so cold anymore.
Be safe everyone. See you on the other side.
