Hurricane Party

Who needs some hurricane music? Despite the fact that the national media is treating this like the end of civilization, we east coasters are really quite alright. Boston will get a bunch of rain and wind, but I live on the 7th floor up on a hill, so I will be fine. I just hope that the power doesn't go out cause that would suck. But I'm all stocked up with cookies, donuts, and beer just in case I'm shut in! Here's some hurricane music for you. Let's all go get shitfaced!

Great list, and good drinks! One suggested addition: Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Couldn't Stand the Weather."

OOooo, that's a good one. I totally forgot it. I'm sure there's others I've missed too. So many hurricane songs, so little time!

Great list, love the Buffett. BUT, how about R.E.M. "End of the world as we know it. "It starts with an earthquake - eye of the hurricane"
