Wind Songs

I’ve been on a hunt for songs and music with the beauty of wind as the theme. There are certainly a number of songs about the terrible power of wind. You know, sinking ships, blowing away dreams and that kind of thing. I posted my query to one of the best folk music websites thinking there MUST be some great ”good wind” folk songs….and three songs were immediately posted in reply:

  • Blow The Man Down
  • Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
  • Watching Lake Michigan Roll

 Ok, so two of the three are definitely NOT wind-positive. And, I can’t find the lyrics for Lee Murdock’s Watching Lake Michigan Roll.  But I’m guessing it may be more about the water and less positive about the wind — who knows?

This is only the first reply I got on the AlleyChat forum (at one of the best 24/7 listener supported live-streaming folk music websites I know - Folk Alley). So maybe there will be others. I’ll let you know.

Now, back to my hunt — here’s what I’ve been able to find as “wind is good” songs so far today.  You will recognize these I’m sure at Everything Pre-School. It tickles me to see that these are positive wind songs for the littlest wind lovers. 

I’m still looking….

If you know the lyrics to Murdock’s song or if you can think of a positive folk song about wind…. how about a comment! – or drop me an e-mail.
