This Bic Runga composition, which might be described as a letter home from an itinerant performer, was released in her native New Zealand on April 7, 2003 and peaked at #14, but remained in the Top 50 for 20 consecutive weeks; it was rated 36 in the country's annual Top 50 chart. Although she usually plays guitar, she performs "Listening For The Weather" at the keyboard supplemented by harmonica.
Runga recorded a slightly uptempo version with a backing band including Ben Maitland on acoustic guitar for Nic Harcourt's Morning Becomes Eclectic
show on KCRW Radio in October 2002.
