The Cloud Appreciation Society


I recently read an article in the New York Times that was published in 2016 about an unlikely collection of admirers. A group that started back in 2004 to sing the praises of...clouds. These devotees are known as "The Cloud Appreciation Society."

Here's a link to the NYT article...

And the society...

The name of the group stuck in my head as a possible theme and title for a mix. So here it is, a cloud themed mix. All the tracks have the word "cloud" in their titles. The music is appropriately drifting and relaxing. All the tunes are relatively new except for a few tracks from 2008, 2014, 2015 and one which reaches back to a Folkways record from 1981.

Look up, admire the clouds drifting by and float away with this mix.

Let's appreciate if they are kept to a minimum - Clouds are the greenhouse gas water vapor.

I like how someone is now seemingly suggesting that clouds are unnatural and should be stopped. He fell just short of calling them racist or transphobic, however.
