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
Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
Hard Rain Gonna Fall
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[youtube.com/watch?v=VuJ9TNg3API]
Okay, now it’s your turn…
50 thoughts on “Songs For A Rainy Day”

Here Come That Rainy Day Feeling Again by The Fortunes
One of my favorites!
Who’ll Stop the Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival
I though it was Have You Ever Seen The Rain, by CCR – my mistake!
Rain, rain go away, come again another day
Now how could I have forgotten that one? 🙂
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..
David Gray…Sail Away. I’m with Lori. Fun…
It’s a great song. And this is fun…
Hey, what about my prize?
Twelve cases of undying admiration are heading your way – as soon as I can get to the post office. But first prize goes to Lori..
This game is rigged.
Laughing…are you saying you wouldn’t like to receive twelve cases of undying admiration? How can you put a price on that?
Bank your admiration. Cracker Jacks, caramels, chocolates…anything
Nope – not good for you.
A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall . ..
I can’t take credit for this one, but “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” – REM
Oh God, I hope not!!
Already on the original list…You’ve got a million of ’em Bill..
I hope the rain doesn’t wash you out and you are all well and safe
Well we’re safe, but have no power..
Looks like someone got “Here Comes the Rain Again.” Glad you’re safe…
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).
I’m glad that mighty storm
Left you safe and warm!
If I didn’t know better, I’d say you’re a song writer!! 😉
