Blown Away – Song Lyric Sunday – Natural Disasters

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/14/18

***

Today Helen has asked us to find songs with the subject of natural disasters. Thanks, Helen!

Quite a few songs came to mind when I read the prompt, but I went with this one. It kind of gives me the chills, as I know exactly how it feels to be in a tornado, as I was in one in 1970.

“Blown Away”, by Carrie Underwood, was released in 2012, from her album, “Blown Away”. It was written by Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, and is on the Arista Nashville label.

    • I can imagine you’d be sick of it by now, hearing it so much! I just very rarely catch it on the radio, so I still like it. šŸ™‚ That’s the thing with songs…they play them way too many times.

  1. I don’t listen to the radio, so I think I’m maybe heard this song once. It’s a sad song, especially considering she’s singing about bringing on the tornado to tear the house down. I have nightmares about tornadoes… I don’t know why. I’m not in a place in the world where they are likely to happen. Must be some fear inside of me. Anyway, great pick for this week! Carrie Underwood has an amazing voice.

    • I would suppose a tornado would be pretty rare where you are. It’s enough to give you nightmares from what you see on the news about them, for sure. We get warnings and watches all the time in the spring. The F5 tornado I was in in 1970 still gives me nightmares. … The song…pretty sad, and her daddy must have been a horrible person for her to wish him blown away. I don’t hear this one very often, but it does bring back reminders. šŸ˜‰

  2. Oh wow. Yes, my grandparents and father were once in one. I wrote about it, as a historic piece, on my blog. She always said she had horrible panic attack when the sky would grow dark.

    • Most definitely with the panic attacks, after being in a tornado. It’s an experience you never forget, and would wish it on nobody. I’ll need to find your story on your blog. Thanks, Kerry.
