Hurricane Song

Album: Hurricane Song (2005)
  • This was released in 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It's sung from the perspective of a storm survivor who's stranded on a roftop and can't get help. It's a scathing indictment of the US government's slow reaction in getting aid to the storm's victims. >>
