Ten Million Rainy Days: City Paper’s Hurricane Sandy Spotify Playlist

You're home, you're wearing sweatpants, and you need some rainy-day tunes. Well, here you go.

Hopefully, it covers all your hurricane bases: Some levity, some pathos, a hefty supply of local. And, in the case of that Bryan Ferry song, some sexy. Did I miss anything essential? Let me know in the comments. Thanks to the folks I bugged in Google Chat for suggestions.

    Not having Bruce Springsteen's "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" as Sandy(!) is destroying boardwalks up and down the Jersey shore -- including Asbury Park -- makes this list completely invalid.

    @Big Pappa: Would've been kind of obvious, no? Ditto Neil Young's "Like a Hurricane" and Bob Dylan's "Hurricane." And the Springsteen song, too.
