Hurricane Songs

Hurricane Dorian will be on us in a couple days. Of course venue owners want me to keep gigging all weekend. Tonight I'm hosting an open mic at a local bar. What songs should we play?

I'm thinking:

Gimme Shelter
Who'll Stop The Rain
Have You Ever Seen The Rain
Like A Hurricane - Neil Young
Jumping Jack Flash

Any other ideas?
Riders on the storm . The Doors

Texas Flood. SRV

Thunderstruck. AC/DC

Against the wind. Bob Seeger

When the levee breaks . Led Zeppelin

It’s raining again . Tom Petty

Storm front . Billy Joel

Clapton. Let it rain

Songs in the Dorian mode? Very common, but it might give you something to talk about between songs. I copied a short list of a few:

To hear the Dorian scale on a keyboard, start on D and it's straight up the white keys to the next D

Anne Murray's "Snowbird". Cause Dorian is just like a Florida Snowbird. It moves 1 mile an hour, can't pick a lane, and has no idea when to turn.

Mary Chapin Carpenter Twist and Shout.
Living on the Delta is quite a show, there's a hurricane party every time I go.

There's always Couldn't Stand the Weather by SRV. Maybe Singin' In The Rain if you're feeling like Fred Astaire.
