If you have a favorite songwriter, you may have heard a few of their songs about the weather. In fact, your local weather is a subject that many people discuss, and local weather events have even inspired songwriters. One of the most famous weather songs, which dates back to the 1950s, is written by Gene Kelly. His song is a classic, turning a stereotype on its head.
Led Zeppelin’s “The Rain Song”
‘The Rain Song’ is a slow-burning rock song by Led Zeppelin, which was originally part of their 1973 album, Houses of the Holy. Robert Plant wrote the song, and he and Jimmy Page played guitar and drums. It’s one of Zeppelin’s slowest songs.
‘The Rain Song’ was the only song from Houses of the Holy that the band performed during its 1980 European tour. In the concert set list, the songs were performed in the order they were recorded, which was similar to that found on the album. For both songs, Jimmy Page played a Gibson EDS-1275 double-neck guitar. For ‘The Song Remains the Same,’ he used the twelve-string section, while for ‘The Rain Song,’ he switched to the bottom six-string part. After the release of the album, the band decided to drop ‘The Rain Song’ from their U.S. tour, but they returned to play it on European tours in 1980 and 1981.
“The Rain Song” was a pivotal song for Led Zeppelin. The band had spent years in relative obscurity, but their success brought them worldwide attention and made them one of the most popular rock bands in history. As their fanbase grew, the band’s live shows became larger and bigger. The songs reflected their ever-expanding visions and egos.
‘Stairway to Heaven’ is a masterpiece of songwriting. It has the weight of a classic rock song, and Jimmy Page’s vision is clear. It remains Zeppelin’s most enduring and memorable track.
AC/DC’s “Thunderstuck” is one of the most well-known songs about the weather. The lead single from their 1990 album The Razors Edge is the band’s most well-known song, and one of their most popular. The song features Angus Young’s signature guitar riff, which is complemented by Malcolm Young’s trademark rhythm. The song is one of the most memorable and popular songs by the band, and has become a classic. It is also one of the few songs from their Back in Black album that’s still on regular set lists. The song’s lyrics are inspiring and motivational, and anyone who enjoys hard rock music will appreciate its lyrics.
Other songs about weather are more about emotion than the weather itself. Despite the fact that most songs are about weather, most songs about storms aren’t about the weather itself. They are about the emotions and experiences that these kinds of weather can create. “Rain on My Parade” by AC/DC, for example, is an upbeat song about the weather, despite the fact that it is a heavy song about a storm.
One of the most famous songs about storms is AC/DC’s “Thunderstun” (1987). The song was inspired by guitarist Angus Young’s experience with a violent storm on a plane. Its lyrics, while evocative, can be tricky to understand. In addition to the song itself, the song’s lyrics have become a drinking game for storm enthusiasts.
“Crying Lightning” by AC/DC is another song that is a favorite for storm lovers. The song’s title refers to the fact that many people cry in order to gain sympathy. In addition, Crying Lightning is a ballad, telling the story of a rebellious biker. It was inspired by the Marlon Brando film The Wild One.

One of Queen’s most popular songs has been covered by many artists. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital music services. Jonathan Clark is a bass guitarist and singer-songwriter.

The song’s lyric was written by John Fogerty. The band released it on their album ‘Mardi Gras’ in April 1972. The song reached #1 in Canada and the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of the band’s most popular singles. In November 2018, the song was certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA.
CCR broke up in 1980. Although they had many fans, John Fogerty refused to perform CCR songs with the band’s remaining members. In 1993, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but John Fogerty didn’t want to play old songs with the rest of the band. However, he came back as a solo artist and performs old CCR hits in concerts.
Selena Gomez’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?”
“Have You Ever Seen the rain?” is a classic rock song about a broken relationship. The lyrics use weather as a metaphor for loneliness and the song was released in 2010. Though it was one of Gomez’s first major hits, this song is still one of her most popular songs. It was originally recorded by Pendulum for their album, I Know What You’re Thinking.
The song has been reimagined so many times, and the new version is no exception. A new documentary about the song’s creation will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the song’s making. It’ll feature footage from the recording sessions of the original 1971 album, as well as footage of the band’s new video. It was directed by Laurence Jacobs, who has previously directed videos for Steve Martin and Elvis Costello.
