It’s been raining more often than any of us would like. Every time you look out the window, there’s the wet stuff. Sometimes music helps the situation, or hinders it. I’m going to lean towards the former here… This playlist will get you through the rainy day blues!
Blind Melon – No Rain: Well that was obvious. This ‘90s classic will never get old.
Tech Romance – Her Space Holiday: Alright, so this song could be described as emo, it’s kind of whiny. However, it’s got a great orchestral loop in it. Perfect for watching those rain drops fall down the window, just like your tears! A weak analogy, often found in Emo songs.
Flunk – Blue Monday: This is a “New Order” cover that’s completely re-imagined – the perfect song to listen to in bed on a rainy day.
Milli Vanilli – Blame It on the Rain: So what if these guys will live in infamy as not actual being singers and had a Grammy revoked because of it. But, “You gotta blame it on something….”
BB King and Eric Clapton – Come Rain or Shine: This song needs no introduction at all. But let me say this: its mother (expletive) BB KING and ERIC CLAPTON.
Chad Van Gaalen – Willow Tree: When you’re stuck inside watching it pour, this track from Calgary native will keep you going.
CCR – Have you Ever Seen the Rain: Yes Mr. Fogerty, we have.
TLC – Waterfalls: Stop judging me, you love this.
Fleetwood Mac – Dreams: Fun fact: Stevie Nicks went to school to become a meteorologist, so when she sings: “Thunder only happens when it’s raining”, it’s fitting. I can’t lie to you. She didn’t. But she should have.
Bishop Allen – Rain: We need a song to bring us back up a bit. “If it’s ever gonna get any better/it’s gotta get worse for a day” are words that we should remember when it’s looking the bleakest.
