This Tornado Loves You

When love songs talk about disasters, it’s usually metaphorical – a flood of tears, a storm within your heart, etc.

But Neko Case, in her latest album, Middle Cyclone, has a more literal take on things. With the lead track, This Tornado Loves You, she presents the perspective of an actual tornado as it relentlessly pursues an unrequited love.
Disturbing? Slightly. But also surprisingly tender.
Sound intriguing? You can listen to the whole album streaming on NPR music.
