Respect the Wind (by Eddie and Alex Van Halen)

There’s also Hot for Teacher, but I’ll save that for another time. He’ll be missed.

Created for the movie Twister, Eddie and Alex Van Halen’s song plays during the end credits. It’s a perfect song for a nighttime ride, or watching a storm late a night.
