By Silvio Rodríguez

Cuba’s lauded poet and singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez is probably one of the few artists on this list that is actually singing about a real hurricane. I’d like to say that he composed this tune after such hurricane-related atrocity in so and so town or city, but in reality, I was just researching themes for this list, and thought this was a really great song. One of my favorite lyrics of “Huracán” is “Hurricane, don’t torture my sun.”
