Here are some songs about actual disasters, I'm sure a lot of you may have heard these already, but I digress. Interesting from the perspective that Gordon Lightfoot had sailed the Great Lakes multiple times himself and remains in contact with many of the Edmund Fitzgerald victims' relatives, and Tornado '87 is inspired by Nils Edenloff's own experience surviving the Edmonton tornado in 1987. I guess I should also mention that a song about a tornado is a perfect fit for this site?
The Rural Alberta Advantage has another song entitled "Beacon Hill" about the 2016 Fort McMurray wildfire (the community of Beacon Hill is a part of Fort McMurray)

Gordon Lightfoot is one of Canada's true treasures. Maybe the US equivalent would be John Prine, whose first hit "Sam Stone" was about a different kind of disaster

I'm not gonna get into the politics and all that, but in short, is it foolish to say that not every single person and/or thing from Russia is an agent of Putin?

Kombinaciya is a Russian band I like, and the band is also very interesting from a historical standpoint; if it weren't for Gorbachev's reforms there's NO WAY a band that released songs such as "American Boy" would have come into existence before the end of the Soviet era.
