While Hurricane Irene has everybody signing the wrong words to the 1982 Dexy's Midnight Runners No. 1 hit "Come on Eileen," the following songs have likely come to mind for many in the path of the big storm.

"The Rain Song" - Led Zeppelin

"Rain" - The Beatles

"Like a Hurricane" - Neil Young

"Blow Wind Blow" - Muddy Waters

"Song of the Wind" - Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson

"Down in the Flood (Crash on the Levee)" - Bob Dylan

"Rock You Like a Hurricane" - Scorpions

"Goodnight Irene" - Leadbelly (Tom Waits' version is pretty cool too)

Or, as some with large amounts of time on their hands have suggested to us, you can find plenty of material just by searching through Bob Dylan's massive output.

There are obvious "Dylan Irene Songs" — "Hurricane," "Shelter from the Storm," — and less obvious, "Rainy Day Women 12 & 35" — but you really could find dozens of related tunes in his repertoire if you listened hard enough.

Until then, we've selected some choice videos of Dylan Irene Songs for your enjoyment.

Musings from a Memorable Summer's End
By Turiya S. A. Raheem

ATLANTIC CITY — Tuesday, Aug. 22: When I pulled up to the Pleasantville Library and saw everyone milling around outside the building, I asked if they were having a fire drill. That’s how I heard about the earthquake in Virginia and the tremors felt in our area. By the time I got home, that was the only news on every TV station. I ventured around town and found that even the BBB’s (black beach bums) had stopped laughing when they momentarily felt the sandy ground beneath them moving this way and that. These sunbathing party animals, who meet on Caspian Avenue beach daily during the summer months, keep their beach chairs and towels in their car trunks year-round. Last week, as they sat in their traditional circle catching up on neighborhood news and gossip and telling jokes, they noticed the young lifeguards bewildered faces as their lifeguard stand threatened to topple — then, the cell phones began ringing. Thursday, Aug. 24: People were still taken aback by the unusual event of earthquake tremors in our area, but no one had time to dwell on Tuesday when Hurricane Irene was dominating the airwaves most of Wednesday and Thursday. I never doubt...
