It’s been raining and freezing here in San Francisco, and that got me thinking about the emotional effects weather can have on people. Some feel refreshed and invigorated after running in the rain, some curl up by the fireplace and read a book, some whine about bad drivers and wet socks…
Weather – and rain specifically – has surely inspired more than a few artists to write music. Let’s get nostalgic and take a look at some odes to rain from years gone by.
Gene Kelly – “Singin’ in the Rain”
Beatles – “Rain”
Dinah Washington – “September in the Rain”
CCR – “Who’ll Stop the Rain”
Led Zeppelin – “The Rain Song”
Milli Vanilli – “Blame it on the Rain”
Madonna – “Rain”
Missy Elliot – “The Rain”
Blind Melon = “No Rain”
And of course, one of YouTube’s own celebrities…
Tay Zonday – “Chocolate Rain”
