The Best Songs About Wind

Windy weather isn’t fun for anyone, no matter what time of the year it is. In the winter, freezing winds help contribute to blizzard conditions. In the spring, high winds often accompany driving rainstorms. Over the summer, gusts of wind remind everyone on the coast of devastating hurricanes. And in the fall, windy days kick up the leaves as a sure reminder of winter’s arrival.

It’s easy to be in a bad mood during a windy day, especially since winds can make simple operations like driving to work or landing an airplane downright dangerous. This playlist is perfect to listen to while you read about weather with our Weather 101 Resources. Click the image below to get started.

In the meantime, we’ve curated our favorite songs about the wind to help put you back in a good mood during blustery days. Here’s a selection of the top ten from our playlist for your listening enjoyment.

1. The Wind Cries Mary – Jimi Hendrix

The first pick for our songs about wind playlist is “The Wind Cries Mary” by the late, great Jimi Hendrix. Whether the wind is crying or whispering to you, it doesn’t really matter. This song is a great pick. And if someone finds Mary, please tell her we have the wind on the line for her.

2. The Wind – Zac Brown Band

The second song on our wind playlist is an appropriately titled song by the Zac Brown Band. “The Wind” is the upbeat jam you need to drown out the howling winds outside. If you’re outside during a particularly blustery day, you might have to hold on for your dear life, too!

3. Summer Wind – Frank Sinatra

We’re bringing it back with this next pick, performed by Frank Sinatra. “Summer Wind” is one of our more favorite types of wind, as long as it’s not accompanied by a thunderstorm or hurricane. We like to think of the summer wind blowing in from across the sea while we sit on the beach. Sounds nice, right?

4. Blowin’ In The Wind – Peter, Paul and Mary

The fourth song about wind included on our playlist is “Blowin’ in the Wind” by Peter, Paul and Mary. This is good for a windy day where you’re looking for answers. We wonder if the wind ever answered them…

5. Winter Winds – Mumford & Sons

We’re halfway through our list, so now it’s time for a winter wind song. “Winter Winds,” by Mumford & Sons, is more upbeat than the title suggests. We especially love the banjo.

6. The Winds of Winter – Ramin Djawadi

To continue the theme of winter winds, the next song is titled “The Winds of Winter.” This piece is from the HBO phenomena Game of Thrones. This particular piece is featured in the last episode of the sixth season. We won’t give any spoilers, but if you want to guess which scene it’s featured in, go ahead in the comments below!

7. Easy Wind – Grateful Dead

There are harsh winds, winter winds, summer winds, and… easy winds? According to the Grateful Dead, there are! Enjoy our seventh song on our playlist of songs about wind.

8. Wind of Change – Scorpions

The wind can put folks in a contemplative mood. Our eighth song on our playlist of songs about wind is the song to meet that mood. “Wind of Change” by Scorpions is one of those rock ballads that we can’t get enough of. Enjoy, children of tomorrow!

9. Against the Wind – Bob Seger

Our penultimate song on our list is probably the one that puts us in the best mood. “Against the Wind” by Bob Seger is one of those classic American tunes. Remember, if the wind really is gusting at dangerous speeds, you will need to seek shelter against it!

10. Dust in the Wind – Kansas

The last pick for our songs about wind playlist is “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas. Easily one of the most popular songs about wind, this song is the perfect way to cap off our playlist. Not to mention, we have an employee who can play the song on ukulele pretty well.
