Songs For A Rainy Day

I’ve been creating a playlist in my head.  I admit, I do weird things in my head.  It’s entertaining though – thinking of  music that is appropriate for today.  So far, I’ve got

Singin’ In The Rain

Stormy

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

Hard Rain Gonna Fall

Windy

It’s Rainin’ Men (it’s not really – at least not here)

I Can’t Stand The Rain

Rainy Days And Mondays

Another Grey Morning

And a friend of mine sent this one, which I had never heard before

  1. Oohh, lovin’ me some JT on this blustery day! And as for ‘rainy day’ songs, what about “I Think It’s Going to Rain Today,” by Norah Jones, “In a Region of Clouds” by William Ackerman, “The Rain” by Melody Gardot, “River of Tears” by Madeleine Peyroux, “Sail” (probably our lawn furniture) by AWOLNATION, “Sail Away” (again with the furniture) by David Gray, “Skyfall” by Adele, and for the pièce de résistance, “Stormy Monday” by Eva Cassidy…. xoxo, L

    • You win the prize Lori!!! I had to go looking for William Ackerman’s song – I loved it!! As I do all the songs (and you introduced me to Melody Gardot and Madeleine Peyroux)…Great choices…I’m humming already. xoxo, m

      • Oh good! Glad that I’ve got you humming–anything to counter the raging of the wind outside. It’s really starting to kick up here now…. And David, I’m thinking Mimi’s undying admiration is pretty sweet…. 🙂

      • It’s kicking up here too…glad we’re still able to write to each other!! And thank you sweetie, I think undying admiration is a pretty good runner’s-up prize..

  2. And after the rain stops…..
    ‘I can see clearly now the rain has gone’ Johnny Nash… and
    ‘Here comes the sun’ The Beatles……. and
    ‘Beautiful Day’ U2

    Sorry… the optimist got the better of me.

    • I’m always for the optimist winning out – these are terrific (I’m a particular fan of ‘Beautiful Day’, but anything by the Beatles is awesome).
