Music Time – Flossie

In honor of Tropical Storm/Tropical Depression Flossie, I thought I’d do a song post.  Especially because if the power goes out, no one in Hawaii will be posting anyway.  But KAN (and her Sweetie) will hold us up.  😉


So, I’m looking for hurricane/storm/rain/winds/hail/twister/tornado/waterspout, etc. music.


Here’s a few of my favorites:


Like a Hurricane – Neil Young  *One of my favorite air-guitar songs


Riders On The Storm – The Doors


Riding The Storm Out – REO Speedwagon


Okay, your turn.


Coming up sooner than you think.

Endless Summer 03

    FWIW, the flip side of Climax’s “Picnic in the Rain” was “Walking in the Georgia Rain” —

    (Sweetie out)

  2. KAN says:

    …and 2) Bruce Springsteen: “Thundercrack”

    (This is an older song of his, but a staple of many of his live shows over the years.)

  3. KAN says:

    Sweetie jumping in on KAN’s account for two more that I thought of after we shut down last night:

    1) Bruce Springsteen: “Thunder Road”

  4. KAN says:

    Of course, I thought of one more, listing it only b/c I know Rodney likes the group (but I can’t find audio/video):

    “Picnic in the Rain,” Climax.

    ‘Alekoki – Kalakaua/Lunalilo

    ʻAʻole i piliwi ʻīa

    Waters of Alekoki
    Like the rains of the uplands
    Sitting this side of Nu`uanu

    I ka lehua nani o Pana`ewa
    E kau mai e ka la
    Me ke kilihune ua”

    Translation: “Celebrated is Hanakahi’s Hilo

  22. 4G says:

    Awww – Bambi! Made me think of Carly Simon, “Itsy Bitsy Spider/Coming Around Again”. I posted this before – sorry; I love this version:

  23. KAN says:

    “Blues in the Night,” done here by Ms. Ella Fitzgerald

    “Now the rain’s a-fallin’, hear the train a-callin, ‘Whooee!’
    Hear that lonesome whistle blowin’ ‘cross the trestle, ‘Whooee!’
    A-whooee-dah-whooee o’ clickety-clack’s a-echoin’ back the blues in the night
    The evenin’ breeze will start the trees to cryin’ and the moon will hide its light when you get the blues in the night
    And take my word, that mockingbird’ll sing the saddest kind of song, he knows things are wrong, and he’s so right”

  24. KAN says:

    Sweetie’s entry above made me think of:

    “Cloudburst,” Barry Manilow

    “Land Down Under,” Men at Work

    “Do you come from a land down under
    Where women glow and men plunder
    Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
    You better run, you better take cover.”

  27. KAN says:

    @ct – that’s awesome. I’d not heard the song before, but Sweetie, who’s a huge Chicago fan, recognized it. Peter Cetera, whom I always thought was sexy, just looks skanky in that video! Yech!

  43. KAN says:

    Sweetie sez:

    “Thunderstorm” movement from Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony (“Pastoral”). BTW, if the “Klemperer” last name sounds familiar, it’s because Otto, the conductor here, was the father of Werner Klemperer, aka Colonel Klink from “Hogan’s Heroes.”

  44. KAN says:

    Third (Presto) movement from the L’Estate (“Summer”) portion of “The Four Seasons,” (Vivaldi) which is supposed to represent a summer storm.

    CCR – Bad Moon Rising

    I see the bad moon arising.
    I see trouble on the way.
    I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
    I see bad times today.

    Don’t go around tonight,
    Well, it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.

    I hear hurricanes ablowing.
    I know the end is coming soon.
    I fear rivers over flowing.
    I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

  63. 4G says:

    Simon and Garfunkel, “The Leaves That Are Green”:

    I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song.
    I’m twenty-two now but I wont be for long
    Time hurries on.
    And the leaves that are green turn to brown,
    And they wither with the wind,
    And they crumble in your hand.

  64. 4G says:

    Diana Ross, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”:

    No wind, (no wind)
    No rain, (no rain)

    We’re goin’ up around the bend

    We could get together for awhile
    It’s been such a long time

    Rock and Roll music …..

    @Seawalker – da guy went to Aiea High School. I heard he became a teacher. If his students only knew the dumb stuff he used to do…

  70. Seawalker says:

    @khs – “There was this guy who always tried to light his fart to entertain us girls. The stoopid burned his pants one time. Gosh, the stuff we used to do…”

    LOL, must be a Kaimuki thing. The Tiger Code of Ethics would not allow you to pass gas in front of someone for entertainment. Instead, us McKinley-kine would just do these monster belches to get your attention instead. Anyway, we were too busy with auto mechanics class. 😆

  71. khs68 says:

    Eagles – Desperado

    Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences, open the gate
    It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you, before it’s too late

  72. khs68 says:

    Kaimuki High School Alma Mater – Go Dawgs

    Here in fair Hawaii’s islands,
    There’s a spot that ever calls,
    Where in view of Diamond Crater,
    Stand old Alma Mater’s halls,
    Where the trees lift high their branches,
    To the whispering ocean breeze,
    There, dear Kaimuki is calling,
    To our hearts’ fond memories.

    “Song of Old Hawai`i,”

    Bee Gees – How Deep is Your Love

    I know your eyes in the morning sun
    I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
    And the moment that you wander far from me
    I wanna feel you in my arms again

  85. KAN says:

    khs68 also made me think of:

    Had to learn this for a show a couple of years ago.

  86. KAN says:

    “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen

    “Thunderbolt and lightning,
    Very, very frightening me.”

  87. KAN says:

    khs68 also made me think of:

  88. KAN says:

    khs68’s Born to Be Wild made me think of:

    “Greased Lightning,” from Grease

  89. KAN says:

    I tell Sweetie when Rod’s running a song game, and he always says “That’s nice. . .” He is even busier than I am right now, so he probably won’t play, but he did mention:

    “The Rainmaker, ” Michael Nesmith

  90. khs68 says:

    Steppenwolf – Born to be Wild

    I like smoke and lightning
    Heavy metal thunder
    Racin’ with the wind

    Take the world in a love embrace
    Fire all of your guns at once
    And explode into space

  91. KAN says:

    @4G: yep, too much going on right now. But it’s hard to sleep when Rodney runs a song game because my brain won’t stop thinking of songs!

  92. khs68 says:

  94. KAN says:

    Wow, I can’t stand this song:

    “Dust in the Wind,” Kansas

  95. KAN says:

    Possibly my favorite Frank Sinatra song:

    “The Summer Wind.”

  96. KAN says:

    “Nani Ko`olau,”

    “Nani Ko`olau a he pö anu
    Ka `iniki welawela o ka Makasila
    I laila käua i walea ai
    Me ka wai o ka `ülala e hö”

    Translation: “The beautiful Ko`olaus and a cold night
    I feel the sting of the Makasila wind
    We passed away the time
    With the waters of song|”

  97. 4G says:

    @KAN – was wondering where you were at. 😉 Hate when that happens (life getting in the way – LOL). I totally forgot about “The Rain in Spain” . . . “By jove, I think she’s got it . . .” LOL!

  98. KAN says:

    Speaking of names, in honor of the Hurricane by the same name:

    “Sandy,” John Travolta, from “Grease”

  99. KAN says:

    Remember that Korean artist Rain who was supposed to perform in concert in Hawai`i, then didn’t?

  100. KAN says:

    Pink Martini often performs with lead vocalist Storm Large (I don’t know if that’s her birth name or not, but she’s fabulous).

    Here, they’re doing “Amado Mio”:

  101. KAN says:

    “The Rain in Spain,” from “My Fair Lady.” It’s Audrey Hepburn’s mouth, but Marni Nixon’s voice.

  102. KAN says:

    “Stormy Weather,” Lena Horne

    (My goodness, Lena Horne was gorgeous, with a voice to match.)

  103. KAN says:

    DIO: re ‘ula’ula:

    Amy Hanaiali`i does a great song called “Ka `Ua Ula,” the Red Rain, which is apparently her `aumakua. (I can’t find video or audio, unfortunately. It’s a great song.)

  104. KAN says:

    4G: re “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”-

    Sweetie has actor friends that we sometimes hang out with, and amongst them are several musicians. We always ask one guy what he wants to hear/sing, and he always says “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” Last year, we called his bluff and sang the whole song. All seven long verses.

  105. KAN says:

    I think “For You I’d Chase a Rainbow” is probably my favorite Kalapana song. Another favorite, ‘though I can’t find video/audio of it, is Anzen Chitai’s “Hitoribotchi no Niji,” (“Niji” = rainbow).

  106. KAN says:

    Ct – I love “Here’s That Rainy Day,” & esp. Kenny Rankin’s version. I’ll see your “Rainy Day,” and raise you a

  108. KAN says:

    I hate it when life gets in the way of my playing the song game!

    Boz Scaggs, “We’re All Alone”:

    Outside the rain begins and it may never end

    Forever more, forever more

    Dean Martin, “Let it Snow”:

    When we finally kiss goodnight
    How I’ll hate going out in a storm
    But if you really, really hold me tight
    All the way home I’ll be warm

    @M: don’t know about a storm, but it’s sure muggy, no?

  128. Mark'75 says:

    @ct: Howzit!!

  129. M says:

    Guud morning MLcers!
    Was there a storm last night?

  130. 4G says:

    Sade, “The Sweetest Taboo”:

    There’s a quiet storm
    And it never felt like this before
    There’s a quiet storm
    That is you

  131. 4G says:

    Gordon Lightfoot, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”:

    The Beatles, “I’ll Follow the Sun”:

    One day you’ll look to see I’ve gone
    For tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
    Someday you’ll know I was the one
    But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun

  132. 4G says:

    @ct! Long time no hear! I hope that all is well with you. 🙂

    The Ronettes, “Walking in the Rain”:

    The Kingston Trio, “They Call the Wind Maria”:

  133. DIO says:

    While this song does not hardly mention anything directly, it is probably the most related to the current topic, as it commemorates an actual natural event in the Islands, an earthquake and tsunami that hit Miloli`i.

    Diane Aki – Lā `Elima

  134. DIO says:

    keoni: Going through the list of posts above, I came upon yours and He Aloha Nô `O Honolulu. For me, that song will always be special due to Hoʻokūkū Hīmeni at Ke Kula `O Hogwarts 😉 Lei `ula`ula was the color of lanakila that night, the color of my class.

  135. DIO says:

    NaPueo: No shame. If you know any more, post ’em. Anything that adds to the post count is good. 🙂

    Man, that was supposed to be Yvonne Elliman in Saturday Night Fever. Push “P” for penthouse, somebody. LOL

    Many years ago, someone asked me to deliver some documents for him to this bar in Waikiki. No big deal. Figured if I was headed to a bar, I might as well go git myself a beer. So I stroll into this alley way on Kuhio. Kind of dark in there. Music’s blaring. Walked through the door. Holy, $hit! What did I see? All women. But it wasn’t women. It was all he-women. Tattoos, drinks were going, and all looking at me. It was a gay bar. Dropped off the documents as fast as possible. I was shaking walking out. Never mind about getting a beer. I’ll never forget, as this song was playing. Used to like the tune before, but not anymore. And it was only drizzling that night. LOL

    Goodby Honolulu
    In the Kûkalahale rain
    Mamala, the entrance of Honolulu Harbor

    @Seawalker Mini Garden been closed for a year. Lucky Belly is the new place there.

  169. Seawalker says:

    One time, I took a karaoke class. It was pretty good. Learned some things. Vibrato, holding a bag in front of your mouth to practice blowing and carrying a tune, and of course, being able to blow out a candle with your exhaling breath. In class, he told us he once had a gal take his class. Very monotone and was not expected to be anything big. Wrong. It ended up being her. A wanabe karaoke singer to major pop singer in Saturday Night Live.

    It doesn’t matter is she rained or not. She rocked!

  170. Seawalker says:

    Catching the bus, it would never fail to rain whenever you got off. Hey, when did they close Mini Garden on Hotel Street? That place was classic for late-night grinds. No, I wasn’t in the area. LOL

    This one’s for you Rod. Wash ’em good.

  171. Seawalker says:

    All this talk about the disco–just saw a former DJ at Rumours Nightclub on TV this morning. Yup, looks the same and even has the same company from way back when. But the guy was cool. He new what it meant being single because he was probably hopeless and single too back then. Anyway, whenever I saw him, he would ask what song I wanted played. Being the smooth operator I thought I was, it was always a slow song. Hey, when the DJ asks, you tell ’em straight from the heart. You are looking for love. Even though it’s in all the wrong places. So, right back at you Mr. DJ. I always appreciate your help.

    Back to Flossie in a while, crocodile.

  172. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL!

    Is it just me, or does it seem like public schools used to be closed more frequently due to rain/storm? Those were good days. They don’t seem to close schools nearly as often these days. 🙁

    James Taylor, “Fire and Rain”:

    From Grease, “Greased Lightning”:

  173. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Even though you stay all wet and miserable in the rain at Aloha Staduim, you did it because it was the place to be in college. Shoots, it was Saturday night and a packed house in the stadium. No school until Monday. Can you top that? Sure. So after Hawaii won in the rain, we made plans to go to La Mancha’s over at Keeaumoku afterwards. You are jacked from the game. You are stoked you partied all afternoon. You are still full of beer and ready for more. So we would fight the traffic home to shower and get changed to continue on with the night. When the beer flows, any kine flow from your mouth. “Eh, how many numbers you going get tonight?” “We going check ’em out, who’ll be checking us out.” Yah, yah, yah. So we ask the bouncer if the place is happening. What else? Of course, brah! We make our rounds. Okay, rejection. We go get drinks. We make a second round. Okay, more rejection. We getting more desperate. So we make a third round. Rejected! Finally, we give up. Nothing but rejections that night. But hey, you know what? U.H. won and it’s all good.

    The music’s blaring at La Mancha’s. Hey, DJ can you play us this song?

  174. 4G says:

    @Seawalker, @Mark’75, and @dihudfan – Let’s go ‘Bows! 🙂

  175. Seawalker says:

    Here, here @dihudfan… going to depend on the QB Graham. If he’s the real deal, and I have a feeling he is, then U.H. should be back in the Hawaii Bowl or better. But Chow has to hurry up too. The buggah, he’s getting makule. Just because his mind is fine doesn’t mean he’ll coach forever. So come Saturday, if I had tickets, I’d go to Henry Louis, fill myself up with ribs and beer, and then catch the bus to the stadium. It’s cold and miserable at the games when it rains. But a U.H. win makes it all worth while. And so it goes…

  176. dihudfan says:

    @ Seawalker and Mark’75… I no can wait too… I hope we hear this song alot this season!!!

    “Louisiana 1927,” Randy Newman

    “What has happened down here is the wind have changed
    Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
    Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
    Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

    The river rose all day
    The river rose all night
    Some people got lost in the flood
    Some people got away alright
    The river have busted through cleard down to Plaquemines
    Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline”

    Newspaper boy days. Come rain or shine, you have to get the papers out. Did it for 5 years. 24/7/365. But the days where it was raining cats and dogs was the worse. I remember one time my brothers and I were sicker than sick. But we had an obligation. It was pouring outside. No choice. You just suck it up and do your work. I remember seeing my mother so worried. She didn’t want to see us go out in the rain in our condition. But all parents worry for their kids. That’s okay mom, we needed the money, but it was also our choice to have a paper route. You guys did fine bringing us up. You just learn to hustle…

  186. Seawalker says:

    @Mark – The ’07 season. We are sitting at 12-0. Washington and Jake Locker is coming to town. We’re number 12 in the bsc standings. So I go down to Cooke Field to watch Colt zing it in practice. The squad’s loose. Confident at the same time. U.H. is smokin’ hot. And so is the public’s expectations. Game is on ESPN. We go down 14-0. Washington is driving. Bam! The tide shifts. U.H. takes over the game. We win. 13-0, baby! Sugar Bowl bid looming. We end up number 10 in the final bcs standings. That, it was, was a once in a lifetime season. It’s never too late to turn back now…

  190. Seawalker says:

    My memories of the rain is at the U.H. football games. Back in the 80s’. Halloween night. Homecoming. Game’s a sellout. Tim Lyons and Bernard Quarles splitting the QB duties. It’s been raining since tailgate time in the afternoon. Half-time show was a blast. U.H. is driving for the touchdown. Band’s pumping it like there’s no tomorrow. Man, it can’t get any better than that. Just hearing this song makes me go wild. And so does everything else! LOL
