A few months ago I was feeling nostalgic and listing all of the songs about rain that I liked, and that is an awesome list, but I was urged to add a few more songs to the list and instead of using the same post, I started a new list of songs that reminded one of my friends about what they love about the rain. Water in and of itself has a quality of power to it, no matter if it is a river, a lake, an ocean or the rain, water can touch the soul. Enjoy the list of favorite songs about rain Part Two, Music is a passion of mine, it fills up many of my memories and I believe it is the language of the soul.
Purple Rain - Prince
Prince and Purple Rain go with the eighties like corn goes with flakes, like Tango goes with Cash, like Peas and Carrots! But really if you take a quick gander at the hairstyles of the people in the video you will understand life in 1983 pretty well. I always ask myself the same question when I look at the hair styles and clothing of the 80′s, “What were we thinking?”. This song and video is a true time capsule. And the first of our favorite songs about rain part two page!
Singing in The Rain- Gene Kelley
This song should have definitely been on the first list, I mean who hasn’t been so happy in love that they tap danced down the street? Happens to me once a month. But seriously, I challenge you to listen to this song and not sing along and tap your feet as you listen to the words. It’s fantastic, makes you want to learn to tap dance and buy an umbrella all at once.
Bring on the Rain -Jodee Mesina
This song was a surprise to me, it projects the feeling we all have when some things haven’t gone our way, sometimes it is just better to embrace the rain and all that comes with it, because if you don’t experience the rain you will never appreciate the sunshine when it comes, whether it is literal or metaphorical. Bring on the rain and we’ll get through it and move on!
Is It Raining At Your House - Brad Paisley
Who hasn’t felt like this, wondering what someone you loved is up to, how are they feeling about things? Are they as angry, lonely, hurt, or missing you like you are them? These questions are timeless and have been asked by everyone who has a heart and has ever had it broken. You can’t listen to this song without missing someone. It only helps to know that everyone else has felt this way too.
It Will Rain - Bruno Mars
This is a song that is not in my normal genre of music, but being urged to listen I can see why it would go on the list, the thoughts about losing the one that you love and the hurt that will result from that. Being a person that is not approved of by your significant other’s family is not a new thing. It is a tale as old as any. Even though I have never been a big Bruno Mars Fan, I like this song.
Kissing in the Rain – Toby Keith
I really never would have thought that Toby Keith would make this list, but Kissing in the Rain belongs. Songs about love from the past are great and if you add rain to it you have a winner. The story in the song I can relate to and it makes me feel like I am young again.
