Songs for a Rainy Day Playlist

Rain makes lots of things flow, including metaphors: Wet weather can dampen spirits but also precede growth (and rainbows), and musicians have been using those qualities expressively in song forever. On “Rain” Madonna likens sexual pleasure to thunderous rainfall; in “Missing,” Everything But The Girl compare longing to a barren desert’s thirst for water. And when Kacey Musgraves sings “Rainbow,” she’s pointing out that sometimes you have to look for the beauty in life.

Here's a great one for ya, Johnny Nash " I Can See Clearly Now The Rain Is Gone". It really is a great song. Take care.

I went through my own Pandora play-list and these are the songs that I have about rain, and storms. "Set Fire To The Rain" by Adele, "A Day Without Rain" by Enya, "Storms Never Last" by Dr. Hook, "Who'll Stop The Rain" by  CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival), "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" by CCR. And if this was the month of November we would have "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses, and last on my playlist "No Rain" by Blind Melon. I thought this was fun. Take care and stay safe.

I want to submit one of my songs... actually, I made just one. It's chill out. 🙂 https://www.pandora.com/artist/tux/lost-in-thoughts-single/AL33czqmb96r26J?part=ug-desktop&corr=1743...

tux, I actually just listened to your one song. It is a really cool tune. I added it to my reading playlist. Take care and stay safe.
