Stormy weather: Pop songs make it rain

You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows — just let the Hot 100 be your Al Roker. We look at several current chart hits that take meteorology (and extended metaphors) into their own hands

Posted on

Hunter Hayes, ”Storm Warning”
Hot ladies = hurricanes; Hayes didn’t even bring galoshes.

B.o.B Feat. Lil Wayne, ”Strange Clouds”
Wow, these clouds smell so…aromatic! Just like Willie Nelson’s tour van.

Bruno Mars, ”It Will Rain”
That’s not rain, it’s Twilight tears.

David Nail, ”Let It Rain”
Guilty cheater Nail begs for sky baptism. Unclean!

Adele, ”Set Fire to the Rain”
Mad love or science experiment on MythBusters? She’ll never tell.
