The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about wind. Do you have a favorite wind blowing song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about the wind. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good wind songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a wind songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan, Candle in the Wind by Elton John, and Idiot Wind by Bob Dylan. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has wind in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about blowing wind, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
