It is another rainy fall day, we need some sun! I enjoy the rain in most cases, but there comes a point that you just want to see the sun. I was thinking about all of the songs that talk about rain. As my thoughts ran through the play list of rain songs in my head, I wanted to put them down before they left my mind. Here is a quick list of my favorite rain songs.
First song is from 2005 by Breaking Benjamin, it’s called Rain. It has the sad yet hopeful vibe I think we all get on gloomy, rainy days.
No Rain by Blind Melon is another song about rain, great lyrics, great rhythm and a memorable bee costume. We have all been that Bee girl at some point in our life. Anyway, it’s memorable enough for me on this rainy day. I like watching the puddles gather rain…………..
Rainy Night In Georgia
This song is one of my all time favorite songs about rain. Sung by Brook Benton, it makes me remember that everybody feels like it’s raining all over the world, sometime. Love lost and memories carried forever, that is the gist of this one. If you have never heard it, you should listen, put it on your Ipod and think about the one that got away.
Rain King is a little more upbeat song by Counting Crows from the 90′s that if you remember it, you will not be able to stop yourself from singing along. I belong in the service of the queen, I belong anywhere but in between, she’s been crying and I been thinking and I am the Rain King.
Like The Rain
Clint Black contributes this one to the list because it captures the feeling that I sometimes have about the rain. The sound of rain falling outside the window, while I remember a special moment, and remember a love that is lost and gone, much like the rain. I never liked the rain until I walked through it with you……………..
This one is by Oran “Juice” Jones, one of my favorites from the mid eighties, I really haven’t heard this song in years but it’s worth a listen. I saw you and him, walkin’ in the rain. You were holding hands and I will never be the same. Classic rant in a song, ever ending with this line: That’s right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don’t you know
that. You without me is like corn flakes without the milk! This is my
world. You’re just a squirrel trying to get a nut! Now get on outta
Elvis was the King, and you can’t have a “rain song” list without him. Kentucky Rain is about searching for the girl that got away. Looking at this list it seems to be a common theme for many of these songs and probably why they mean so much to so many. Don’t know why you’re gone, what your running to or from, all I know is that I want to bring you home…………..
Raining On Sunday
Keith Urban got this one right. Even though today is Tuesday, I think the feeling of ”Raining on Sunday” always seems pretty good. What ever comes Monday can take care of itself. We’ve got better things to do. Memories………….
If you have any you think I should add, just let me know.
