Favorite "Weather" Songs #7 - "Electrical Storm"
August 30, 2017 7:41pm CST
With Hurricane Harvey continuing to pummel parts of Texas, it's time for #7 in my Favorite "Weather" Songs series, which is basically songs with some form of weather in the title. The 7th spot belongs to "Electrical Storm" by U2. Produced by electronica legend William Orbit, "Electrical Storm" was specially recorded for U2's 2002 compilation album, The Best of 1990-2000. Despite being an international hit, it was seven years before the band performed the song live, in Barcelona, as part of their 360° tour. And "Electrical Storm" was definitely an international hit. While it stalled at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100, it reached Top 5 status in 14 other countries, including #1 in Italy, Portugal, and Spain. I've attached the official video, which stars drummer Larry Mullen Jr. and actress Samantha Morton. Enjoy! (Info verified by Wikipedia)
