Rainy Days and Mondays

As I write this, it's Sunday night. I'm already NOT looking forward to going to work in the morning, and it's raining and cold outside. My friend Candy wrote a blog post over the weekend about some of her favorite sunny day songs, and I have a sunny day playlist, which I'll do in a future post. Today I present to you my Rain playlist, which I pulled together a couple years ago when it seemed that the whole month of April was full of rain.

"Here Comes the Rain Again" - Eurythmics

"Every Time It Rains" - Charlotte Martin

"Storm Comin'" - The Wailin' Jennys (If you've not heard this trio, check them out below. I'm a little addicted to this song.)

"Cue the Rain" - Queen Latifah

"Raindrops Will Fall" - Tamyra Gray (While I'm cool with Kelly Clarkson, I'm still bitter that Tamyra got the boot so early in the first season of American Idol. I would have loved a finale between those two.)

"Set Fire to the Rain" - Adele (This might come off the list just because it's overplayed now, but I do still like it.)

"Don't Rain on My Parade" - the Glee Cast version, which really means Lea Michelle

"Kiss the Rain" - Billie Myers (below)

"I Love a Rainy Night" - Eddie Rabbitt. This takes me back to junior high days.

"Only Happy When It Rains" - Garbage

"Laughter In The Rain" - Neil Sedaka

"Rain King" - Counting Crows

"Let The Rain" - Sara Bareilles

"No Rain" - Blind Melon. I love the Bee Girl.

"Purple Rain" - Prince. Duh. By the way, Purple Rain was the theme of my senior prom.

"Shadows In The Rain" - Sting

Do you have any favorite "rain" songs?

Stay Tuned,

The Gila

    1. I love the Carpenters, but Rainy Days and Mondays is depressing to me and I put the playlist together to be a bit more uplifting. LOL

  3. Ohhhhh, I love Kiss the Rain! One of my all time faves!! Stay warm and dry! Bring on spring, right?

  4. Rain King & Raining In Baltimore. Counting Crows August & Everything After is hands down one of my top 5 albums. First CD I ever owned!

  5. Looooove this post! Now I have some amazing tunes in my head and I'm serenading the Hubby and Kitty!

  6. LOVE the Wailin' Jennys!!
