Hello there inmates!

Does this winter never end? I know that’s a stupid question, but I simply can’t wait for the weather to warm up. I’m fed up with wearing several layers everyday. Don’t mind me, I’m just complaining to the laptop really. I hope that all of you are surviving out there, especially those of you affected by snow. We’re fairly lucky with that on the island, it’s very rare for snow to bother us here. You better keep safe out there or I’ll be most upset.

So, on to less droll conversations. Who likes music? Well, that’s what we’re all here for today! If you don’t really like music, I’m not sure why you’re here. Surely not for me rambling nonsense. So, did anybody see the clue for todays theme? I certainly hope so! I spend at least 5 minutes searching for those you know!

So, let’s get right down to it eh? Todays musical theme is the weather! Yep! Now I know previously I have covered the cold and winter. I’ve covered summer and the heat. But what about the weather in a more general sense? What about the wind? The rain? What about simple calm blue skies? Those still have merit don’t they? Who doesn’t like not having to worry about the weather on a given day eh? Well, there’s plenty of music inspired by all kinds of weather. It doesn’t always have to be the extremes after all. The wiles of the natural world are something that has inspired souls since the beginning of time. I imagine people have created music about it even back in the cave and fire times! Skulls for drum sets anybody? So, I’m sure I don’t need to explain how all kinds of natural climates could inflame an artist. Let’s just get to it!

So please, join me as we delve into the musical minds of elemental artists the world over!

Creedence Clearwater Revival – Have You Ever Seen The Rain

Hale – Blue Sky

Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Snow (Hey Oh)

Pharell Williams – Gust of Wind

The Weather Girls – It’s Raining Men

And there we have it! I feel like I just watched a very jazzy weather forecast. If only they were always musical in nature on the tv eh? Mind you, that may be a bit more first thing in the morning. I don’t think anybody needs somebody singing about the virtues of north westerlies at 7am. Alas, I hope that you enjoy the choices I’ve shared today and that you check out the artists as ever. They always deserve it. Some well-known names there for sure!

Speaking of not-very-well-known names, have you heard of my social media sites? It would mean a great deal to me if any of you deigned to like/follow me over on those pages as well. I’ll include links here as always. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and lastly (and least) a page over on Twitter as well. If you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please also consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thanks for everything my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

    All good songs, but CCR’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” is by far my favorite.
