Los Angeles Gone With The Wind Playlist

We had some crazy weather in Los Angeles lately, the Santa Ana winds blew up to 80-100 mph, trees fell down (one was across the street when I drove to work this morning), power went down in some parts of the city, and schools closed down for the day! Here are a few songs about the wind.

 – Idiot Wind, by Bob Dylan: ‘Now everything's a little upside down’ … exactly, it was as if the earth had decided to blow out everything, it’s cleaner, but everything is upside down. And yeah, what an idiot wind which damaged houses and cars.

 – Blowin' In The Wind, by Bob Dylan: Dylan likes this wind imagery, and I am not sure what answer was blowing in the wind last night, but, if I was a believer, I would say it must have been a big statement from above.

 – Cold Wind, by Arcade Fire: There is always an apocalyptic-end-of-the-world vision when the wind is blowing like this. As if something big and terrible was about to happen, and the wind was cold as death.

 – The Wind, by Cat Stevens: Actually Stevens was talking about a much more calm wind than the one blowing yesterday night, this song is way too peaceful to talk about this crazy beast that almost took my roof.

 – Against the Wind, by Bob Seger: The wind metaphor in songs is endless as if the wind was our life stream.


– Hasten Down The Wind, by Warren Zevon: There is also something sad about the wind, as if it was changing people’s mood and perspective about life.

– Ride The Wild Wind, Queen: This song gives a better impression of what was going on last night.

– Rain Falls for Wind, by The Sleeping Jackson: The wind is the catalyst for the desire, or the desire itself, I’m not sure.

 – Whistle Down The Wind, by Tom Waits: There is actually no wind at all in this story, but when Waits sings one of these slow sad tunes of his, you just want to leave everything and follow him anywhere to go die in some hole like the wind.

 – Wind Chimes, by Brian Wilson: The wind has calmed down now, it may blow again tonight but right now I can just listen to wind chimes.
