All of these songs talk about clouds in some way, shape or form. Some of them may even remind you of your favourite memories as a child – listening to this music might bring back memories from your childhood yourself.

1. “Cloudbusting” by Kate Bush

Written about the relationship between Peter Reich and his father, Wilhelm Reich, a controversial Austrian scientist who believed in something called “orgone energy,” which was said to be found everywhere. He had even written a book on it.

When he moved to America with his family from Europe, many of his theories were put into practice – including cloud-busting. This is where he would go outside during storms and use instruments to bring down clouds for an experiment that proved or gone energy existed.

In this song, Kate Bush sings: “And when I’m feeling blue / My daddy lets me know / All you have to do is / Just take a look at the sky… And there beyond those puffy clouds / A little bit of blue / That’s where my daddy is and he lets me know”


2. “Cloudy day” by Tones and I

This song is all about the beautiful things that come from cloudy days. From rainbows to colour, it’s all here in this track.

Some of our favourite lyrics are: “It’s not their fault / The sun has gone away too soon” and “I get so tired of seeing them smile on sunny days.”


3. “Clouds” by Zach Sobiech

A song about someone who wishes they could be with their loved one forever, even after death. “I have died every day waiting for you / Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years / I’ll love you for a thousand more” are just some of the lyrics that make this track so beautiful and touching.

Zach Sobiech passed away in 2013, and this song was his goodbye to the world. It is still prevalent today – with over 20 million views on YouTube since its release!

4. “Cloud” by NF

Another song about heartbreak and longing, NF sings that he wishes he could be with his significant other. “I’m wishing I was there / To kiss you in the rain” are just some of the lyrics to this touching track by NF.


5. “Thunderclouds” by LSD ft. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth

This song is about overcoming obstacles, like “thunderclouds” in your life. It’s an upbeat track that will have you dancing around in no time! The music video has over 470 million views on YouTube – it features Sia too, who adds to the gorgeousness of this song.


6. “Cloud Nine” by The Temptations

This song is off of their album called Cloud Nine, which was released back in 1969. This one’s a little bit more upbeat compared to some of the others on this list, but it’ll still make you want to sway along with them as they sing about wanting “cloud nine.”

Another great tune that was featured prominently during the 60s era – and for a good reason.


7. “Open The Clouds” by Unspoken

A beautiful track that speaks of God’s love for us and how He is always with us even in the darkest times. “Open The Clouds” was featured on their album Awaken, which came out back in 2009. A great song about finding hope during difficult times!


8. “Strange Clouds” B.o.B ft. Lil Wayne

Another upbeat track that’s about how it doesn’t matter what you’re going through – as they sing: “We all feel alone, we wish somebody would call / We all got the same thing on our mind.”

There might be some struggles, but everything will work out in time. A great song for those who are looking to overcome their obstacles!


9. “Clouds Never Get Old” by Bas

A song about how they might have some struggles, but that doesn’t mean their lives will be over. “The way it is now, I’m alright / The rain will go away” as well as “Crying leaves me empty and cold sometimes / But the clouds never get old.”

It’s an excellent reminder for those feeling blue to know that everything will be alright…and not give up hope.

10. “Smoke Clouds” by James Arthur

A song about how we all have some darkness in our lives, but that’s okay. “I’m just a man who makes mistakes / I smoke clouds till the day I die.”

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do – there will always be obstacles and struggles. That doesn’t mean that everything is going to fall apart, though!
