Weather Songs

Well I've been thinking about the weather a lot lately, and how I am absolutely sick and tired of all of this WIND.
The wind here is ridiculous. It blows 25-35 mph and it knocks you down from every direction. Every. single. day. No matter what time of day. Even at 7:45am making my trek across campus for classes.
So speaking of meteorology, here are some songs with titles relating to the weather (in no specific order):

1. "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" - Creedence Clearwater Revival
2. "Blue Sky" - Allman Brothers
3. "Storms" - Fleetwood Mac
4. "Sunshine of Your Love" - Cream
5. "Candle in the Wind" - Elton John
6. "Let it Rain" - Eric Clapton
7. "Fire and Rain" - James Taylor
8. "Winds of March" - Journey
9. "Dust in the Wind" - Kansas
10. "Call Me the Breeze" - Lynyrd Skynyrd
11. "Goodbye Blue Sky" - Pink Floyd
12. "Get Off Of My Cloud" - Rolling Stones

What song title relates to the kind of weather you're having right now?

Wow, I didn't realize there were SO many songs that had to deal with weather... awesome!

@ Dan: We need rain here too. It's been pretty dry.

Here's to hoping everybody has a "Blue Sky" (Allman Bros) today! And no wind for me, Jeff, Unholy & Salem.
