Songs for a Flood

It’s raining pretty hard in Baltimore today, and parts of the area are under a flood-watch.  A friend of mine told me that Fells Point is flooding.  I don’t find that hard to believe.  So here’s a list of flood themed songs for you today.

1.) Theme From Flood – They Might Be Giants

2.) Lost in the FloodBruce Springsteen

3.) Who Will Stop the Rain?Creedence Clearwater Revival

4.) High Water (For Charley Patton)Bob Dylan (Dylan has many choices, but I decided to go with this one because it’s one of my favorites of his latter-day career, less obvious.)

5. March into the Sea – Modest Mouse

6.) Walk to the Water – U2 (Joshua Tree-era B-side)

7.) The River in Reverse – Elvis Costello & Allen Touissant

8.) When the Levee Breaks – Kansas Joe McCoy, Memphis Minnie

9.) Down by the Water – PJ Harvey

10. Famous Blue Raincoat – Leonard Cohen
