The weather here has been so bad lately, rain coming down hard and often, that I thought I’d use it as a good thing and post my favourite songs featuring rain in the title. With no particular order (and with apologies to Adele and Led Zeppelin), feel free to choose a favourite or any you want to add.
How about “Singing in the Rain” by Gene Kelly? 😉
That was in the original draft actually. The film is a classic, but that remix really had to go in. There’s a comedy duo called Morecambe and Wise who did a sketch on it which is wonderful too https://www.thesun.co.uk/video/tv/morecambe-and-wise-parody-singin-in-the-rain/
What about “God save the Queen” – “Long to rain over us”?
Ha. You do look at things differently.
That’s a nice one 🙂
You’ve covered rain songs well. My favorite has made the list.
Thanks. Which one was it?
The purple one…
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain
That’s the one! 🤗
I really like that version of “Singin’ in the Rain” you posted. A great way to start the day, rain or not. 🙂
The Mint Royale one?
Yes. I love it!
I appreciate your positive spin on a wet situation. Good job! I like your list and would only add “I Wish It Would Rain” by the Temptations. 🙂
That’s a good one too. I was hoping it would inspire sunnier days but it’s still rained plenty.
Good list ☔️
Any list always benefits from The Beatles 👍
It’s been raining all morning here, so it was the perfect time to read this post. 🙂
Thanks Amanda. There’s been so much rain here I could easily be inspired to do another 8.
I love rainy days…as long as I don’t have to do a lot of driving.
And reading instead 🙂
Great picks, Alex. My favorite movie is “Singin’ in the Rain,” and I love that song, too.
That film is guaranteed to put you in a good mood. And I really do recommend that Morecambe and Wise sketch. It’s brilliant. Wherever the cop stands or moves to he always gets drenched 😂
Nice! I didn’t know the Madonna or Mint Royale videos, or songs. Love the list, and here’s a rain song for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NFywQdeKSoby the legendary Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Happy to share. And thanks for the link. I had not heard back that before! It was good to hear.
I sing a song about rain by Saariaho, Il Pleut very soulful on a wet day.
I’ve learnt so much from your blog 🙂
Not me singing 😊
I love Here Comes The Rain Again it reminds me of my parents and Madonna.
Madonna is just about to release her 14th studio album! That’s some achievement.
I know she’s amazing, her Ray of Light album was the soundtrack of my childhood 😀.
Nice! You’ve got me wondering what my childhood soundtrack music was. It was before my time but I did listen to Duran Duran and Tears for Fears. I feel so happy to have seen both live.
My parents taste in music was usually what we listened to in the car every day. Queen it’s a kind of magic, Eminem, Erasure, Kate Bush, Madonna, I listened to Glee, Britney, Spice Girls, Christina Aguilera on cd. With hindsight I wish I’d spent more time with classical music but I’ve played some catch up.
