Rain Songs

Ah, it's raining... Okay, top five songs about rain!
1. Rain, Martin Stephenson & the Daintees
2. Tinseltown in The Rain, The Blue Nile
3. Famous Blue Raincoat, Leonard Cohen
4. Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, Burt Bacharach
5. Why Does It Always Rain On Me?, Travis


  1. Actually, Famous Blue Raincoat doesn't have that much to do with rain. I should have chosen Brand New Friend by Lloyd Cole and The Commotion, that start with this line:
    Walking in the pouring rain
    Walking with Jesus and Jane
    Jane was in her turtleneck
    I was much happier then

  2. Nice selections! I think I would also add "Rain and Tears" by Aphrodite's Child.

  3. Tor Lundvall - City Rain

  4. And you have, of course, the monster hit ballad from the 80's, Tears In The Rain by Robin Beck.
    Ah, those were the days...

    I won't mention Purple Rain by Prince, or November Rain by Guns'n'Roses, or Summer Rain by Alphaville, or Soft Rains of April by A-ha, allthough they are all very nice songs!
