We have entered into what is predicted to be a week of rain. Upon waking today I heard the tap tap of rain hitting the roof and all day long it has been in the background of my thoughts. Of course the current rain has been in the foreground of my thoughts. The thing is that the pressure that builds up just before it rains and while it is raining can often give me a splitting headache.
And in my memories some songs have been popping up and asking for release.
Have you ever thought about how many songs there are related to rain? Just searching on YouTube for Rain and Raindrops will give you a ton of listings that could give me a blogpost word count that goes beyond Nigel Tomm’s “The Blah Story Volume 4.”
While I would love to embed all those songs in here or even give you a list, it would be too easy a cheap shot so I will share with you some of my favorites.
The Beatles “RAIN”
Because embedding all the links here would just not be right (and slow down the entire blog) here are links to a few more favorites of mine that deal with rain:
The Cascades – The Rhythm Of The Pouring Rain
Led Zeppelin – Fool In The Rain
Creedence Clearwater Revival – Have You Ever Seen The Rain
Creedence Clearwater Revival – Who Will Stop The Rain
The Eurythmics – Here Comes The Rain Again
And who can forget that classic – Singing In The Rain
I’ll leave you with one I just discovered: Yiruma’s Kiss The Rain
And with that I bid you all a good day and hope that it is full of sunshine!
