When I got out of the Army, a friend recommended a book to me about a CIA assassin who was also a zen master (yeah, I know, but just go with me for a second).  Anyway, the guy had a garden built in the middle of his house so when it rained he could sit on a cushion, close his eyes and listen to the rain drops hit the various leaves.  The image has always stuck with me…
While I was in Liverpool recently, I was sitting next to an open window (reading) and the memory came back to me, so I closed my eyes and I’ll be darned if I couldn’t hear the drops striking various things – the window, the roof, the trees, etc.
This in turn got me thinking about “rain” themed songs.  Most are usually about crying over a breakup, but some are not.  It turns out there are loads of songs which use this imagery.  Here are some of my favorites from across my life:
Breakups:
It Must Be Raindrops
Listen To The Rhythm Of The Falling Rain
I Wish It would Rain
Happiness and/or Memories:
Singing In The Rain
I Can See Clearly Now
Alabama Rain
Walking In The Rain (With The One I Love)
Shelter From The Storm
As always, read the words (first), then go listen to the songs/music.  If you agree they’re terrific or just bring back memories for you – drop me a comment.  Don’t forget to buy from your source or go visit someone playing live music.  That’s the best way to support the Arts!!
