(1966) "Sunny " is the name of a song written by Bobby Hebb. It is one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released. BMI rates "Sunny" number 25 in its "Top 100 songs of the century".
Hebb wrote the song after suffering a double tragedy - a national loss followed by a personal one: On 22 November 1963. the day after US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Hebb's older brother Harold was killed in a knife fight outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events and many critics say that those events inspired the tune. Others claims Bobby wrote the song for God. Certainly, events influenced Bobby's songwriting, but his timeless melody, crossing over into R&B (#3 on U.S. R&B chart) Country and Pop (#2 on U.S. Pop chart), together with the optimistic lyrics, came from the artist's desire to express that one should always "look at the bright side" - a direct quote from the author. Hebb has said about "Sunny":
"All my intentions were just to think of happier times – basically looking for a brighter day – because times were at a low tide. After I wrote it, I thought "Sunny" just might be a different approach to what Johnny Bragg was talking about in 'Just Walkin' in the Rain'".
"Sunny" was originally part of an 18 song demo recorded by producer Jerry Ross, also famous for Spanky and Our Gang. Keith's "98.6" and Jay and the Techniques (Hebb was the first artist to cover "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie", in fact, but didn't want to be considered a novelty act and let the song go to Jay Proctor). "Sunny" was first recorded in Japan by Mieko "Miko" Hirota - the "Connie Francis" of Japan, where it was said to have done well on the charts. In America it was released by vibraphonist Dave Pike on Atlantic Records in 1965 on the " Jazz for the Jet Set " album, a full year before Philips released the 45 version produced by Ross and arranged by Joe Renzetti. This information was made public - as well as sounds from the first two versions of "Sunny", on the BBC's celebrated "Songlines" program in early 2006.
"Sunny" was recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York City and released as a single in 1966. It met an immediate success, which resulted in Hebb touring in 1966 with The Beatles.

Weather is a fascinating subject. It is such an intricate and amazing process, which our mother earth goes through on a daily basis. All over the world, weather seems to be a very important aspect for our everyday lives. For instance; sunny weather can bring on a very harmonious and beautiful atmosphere, while cloudy and rainy weather can bring about tragedy. In 1998; the earth experienced an El Nino which brought on fierce weather, flooding, and hurricanes. Weather systems are very broad and detailed, so please; sit back and enjoy as I attempt to tackle the subject of weather systems.
Throughout my essay, I will be using the scientific methodology in my research methods to determine what I know, what I want to know, and the many unanswered questions that exist. Before I dig any deeper into the complicated weather systems, I will first describe a very important detail to our “weather drama.” There is a very distinctive body of air called an air mass. This distinctive body of air is the effect of the surface on the air, which created regional, homogeneous masses of air having specific conditions of temperature, humidity, and stability. These masses of air interact to produce weather patterns.
I will explain the differences between winter and summer weather patterns. By using inductive reasoning, we know that winter generally brings cold, and wet weather, while summer generally brings hot, dry weather. By using deductive reasoning, I will now discuss the logistics behind winter weather and summer weather.
Cyclonic storms shift across the continent along storm tracks. These storm tracks shift lattitudinally with the sun and seasons, therefore creating what we know to be the summer months, autumn months, winter months and spring months. The typical storm tracks that cross North America are farther southward in winter.
I will be discussing a weather system for North America, and specifically for California. Here in the North, we have what is called Continental polar, or cP. These cP air masses form only in the Northern hemisphere and are most developed in the winter when they dominate cold weather conditions. An area covered by cP air experienced cold, stable air and clear skies. North America also has what is called Maritime Polar, or mP air masses. mP air masses are in t.

. and sulfate aerosols. Pollutants play a key role in the hot summer weather. Due to the hole, which has been created in the ozone layer from continuous Anthropogenic pollutants, the UV rays are extremely dangerous to humans, plants, and animals. Smog is also responsible for the hazy sky and reduced sunlight in many of our cities including LA, and Mexico City.
We will now discuss Aledo. The reflective quality of a surface is a fascinating process in which we call the Albedo effect. This involves surface color, angle of sun, and surface texture. A portion of arriving sunlight bounces right back into space without being absorbed or performing any work. This returned energy is called reflection albedo. This is the reflective quality of a surface. For instance, the snow in the high sierras has a very high reflection albedo of 80%-95%, While the forested area at big Basin has a low albedo of only 10%-25%.
As you have just read, all of these topics play a key role in weather systems. They are all so intricate, and individual, yet all seem to work together simultaneously to provide us with the daily weather patterns we experience.

Solar Thermal Energy Essay - Solar thermal energy is dead. A solar thermal heating system can cost upwards of $7,000 to install and it most likely won't even save you too much money. This is why many people debate over whether they should use a solar thermal water heating system, because they think they are saving money, or an inexpensive traditional water heating system. A traditional heating system is a system that is powered off of electricity, gas, oil or some other fuel. A solar thermal heating system uses the energy from the sun, hence “solar”, and it turns that energy into hot water to either heat a home or to provide domestic hot water.

Weather and Culture Essay - An old Norwegian saying states that “there is no such things as bad weather, only bad clothing.” The saying may be old, but its value is without a doubt contemporary, encompassing the Norwegians’ embrace of nature and the effect of the weather on their culture. This Norwegian culture, from clothing to food, to leisure activity to art, has always been greatly influenced by the climatic conditions, and continues to be so today. It is a society deeply rooted in traditions and mutually linked to its environment, which allows for much outdoor activity, even though the country finds itself at the fringes of the north.

Analysis of A Black Birch in Winter Essay - Analysis of A Black Birch in Winter This poem is extremely easy to understand if one understands the comparison being made. Although by saying that a tree may look old in the winter but it will appear reborn in the spring is what Wilbur is talking about, he is relating and comparing this to the life of an aging man. The poem states that "Old trees are doomed to annual rebirth, new wood, new life, new compass, and greater girth." This means that the tree will stretch and crack year after year to accommodate new growth. [tags: Black Birch in Winter Essays]

New England Weather Essay - In the New England area, the weather is very unpredictable due to the following reasons. New England sits right in the middle of the Jet Stream, a weather pattern that remains fairly consistent as it guides the weather for the entire United States. To the north of the Jet Stream, you have very cold Arctic air, and to the south of it, you have the warm moist Gulf air. These two factors help to create a very unstable atmosphere that can change the forecast of the weather at anytime. Many New England states lie along bodies of water. [tags: essays research papers]
