Singing one of the 10 best songs about weather might be a good way to avoid talking about the weather. Heck, you might even solve a person's need to watch The Weather Channel. Weather, when it's used to describe love, applies rain talk to bad times, and sunshine to the good. And because we've all experienced both of these familiar climate conditions, we can all relate.
- "Only Happy When it Rains" by Garbage. We all know somebody like this, right? They're the kind of people that live just to suffer. And that's not really living at all.
- "Mr. Blue Sky" by Electric Light Orchestra. This song has been used in countless movies of late. ELO may be more popular now than when they first started. Yet it begs the question: Where do you deliver the mail to a Mr. Blue Sky?
"Good Day Sunshine" by The Beatles. The Beatles are from Liverpool, England. Good day sunshines are few and far between. So when they get a day like that, you best believe they're going to write a song about it.
- "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles. Sunshine can also express how one feels when life starts to get better. The sun in the sky is a sign that the bad weather may be over for good. Now, if the sun really did move towards the Earth, that might be a disaster waiting to happen.
- "Rock you like a Hurricane" by The Scorpions. What, you didn't think there'd be at least one song on the list about sex? Hey, this song is every dude's dream. One wonders when they'll name a hurricane after The Scorpions.
- "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves. TV ad people love this song. The song makes the viewer feel so good, all they want to do is go out and buy stuff — their stuff. Walking on actual sunshine, however, is not recommended by 100% of pediatrists.
"Heatwave" by Martha and the Vandellas. "Has high blood pressure got the best of me/Or is this the way love's supposed to be?" Women with their hot flashes are probably not in love. But if you're younger than, say, 40 and feel this way. You may be in love.
- "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" by Bill Withers. This is the opposite of "Here Comes The Sun." When a great woman walks out of your life, the sun oftentimes follows her. This should make you think about how you prepare that pre-nup. You wanna make sure you still get sunshine after she leaves.
- "You are the Sunshine of my Life" by Stevie Wonder. Ah, ain't that sweet? It's so tempting to make blind jokes here. But that just wouldn't be right.
- "Weather With You" by Crowded House. One has to wonder if Crowded House had Bill Withers in mind while writing this song. Weather men have trouble explaining how, for instance, storm fronts follow pretty girls.
