21 Thunder and Lightning Songs

lightningI've heard there's yet another thunderstorm warning for the GTA. This time, we get something extra special with our thunderstorm. They're calling for a tornado.

Beware the funnel clouds, kids. And while you're hankering down in your cellar, play these "thunder" and "lightning" tunes I culled from my collection. If I missed any, add them in the comments.

OK, so also does not have any weather terms in the title - but as a rain hater, even I was outside on Sunday night for 1/2 hr getting soaked. I was blasting Fire Woman - perfect for an epic storm.
