It's All Wet, On Wordsmithonia Radio

Earlier this week, it rained a lot.  Well maybe not a lot, but one entire day was taken up by rain.  Parts of our state have been in drought conditions for a few years now, so any time it rains, it's more than welcome.  Add in the fact, that I love overcast rainy day, and rain has been on my mind for a while now.

How can you not love a rainy day?  Okay, maybe you may not enjoy as much if you are having to work, but when you get to have the day off, and it's raining outside, it's almost like Heaven.  I love to stay home with all my curtains open, watching the rain come down.  I'll cuddle up on the couch, or in bed, and watch movies, read some great books, drink some tea, and just have a perfectly lazy day.  I love the way it looks cascading down my windows, the way it smells if I'm lucky enough to be able to leave my patio door open, and the way it sounds as it taps on the roof.  It's something that appeals to all my senses, whether is a gentle sprinkle, or a raging thunderstorm.  Rainy days make me happy.

So I thought I would share a few rain inspired songs with you. The songs can be literal or figurative, when its comes to their use of the imagery.  But they are all songs that I enjoy listening to, and can help take me back to a perfect rainy day, even if it's 105 degree outside with not a cloud in the sky.

One quick note, "Purple Rain" by Prince and "Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks would be on here, but apparently they don't allow their music on Youtube.

Wow great songs celebrating rain my fave is by the Eurythmics. I love the smell of rain too, so clean.
Thanks Ryan

Love the rain! I miss it so much. It's been kind of a tease- the mornings have been overcast but no moisture.

Love the songs you picked! I saw Garbage in concert when I first moved to Phoenix, they opened for Alannis Morrisette- it was a great show!

I love rainy days too, especially listening to the rain hit the pool cover. I'll be humming Purple Rain all night long.

I don't share your love for rain. I'd much rather have snow. I don't mind it if I don't have to go anywhere....however, I also hate the dampness that comes along with it.

Great music selections though. Love that Eurythmics song. :)

Great list! One of these days I'm going to call into work and say I can't come in just because it's raining!
