Look, we know Tropical Storm Andrea is getting a lot of press today — particularly here in Charleston where just a little sprinkle can trigger a massive Market flood, but she’s not getting a lot of love.

Yes, she’s the first tropical storm of the season, but Jim Cantore and the rest of the Weather Channel gang just aren’t giving her the kind of “it’s the end of the world as we know it” juice that they normally give to summertime tropical storms.

So we decided to put together a little playlist for Tropical Storm Andrea, you know, to let her know that we’re thinking about her and that even though she’s just a homely, underdeveloped gal, we didn’t forget her Sweet Sixteen birthday like all those other bastards. She’ll always be a princess of pouring rain to us.

Here’s to you, Andrea. Rage on in your own little Molly Ringwald way.
