Spring showers call for mood music.
Much as I love the bluesy rock vibes of Wide Mouth Mason, one of my favourites of my favourite band is this slow, emotive, melancholic ballad that makes me want to have a warm drink and a satisfying book to read and relax on rainy days like today. The last few bars of vocals always gets to me.
The weather outside is cold and wet, the rain reminding me of songs in my music listening history that are about the sometimes inclement weather. Here are ten songs about rain that came to mind, in no particular order:
- East 17 – “Let It Rain”
- Prince – “Purple Rain”
- Bruno Mars – “It Will Rain”
- The Beatles – “Rain”
- Wide Mouth Mason – “Midnight Rain”
- Adele – “Set Fire To The Rain”
- Blind Melon – “No Rain”
- Nelson – “After The Rain”
- Wide Mouth Mason – “Rained Out Parade”
- Eddie Rabbit – “I Love A Rainy Night”
