Songza app recommends music depending on the weather

You’re staying in all night to wait out a gnarly storm, curled up on the couch reading a favorite book by candlelight. Naturally, in this kind of a situation, many of us gravitate toward soft, soothing melodies that contrast well with the torrential chaos outside. But now you may not have to sift through your library to find that perfect song to complement whatever Mother Nature is throwing at you.
