Sonic Sunday: April Showers, Pt. 3

'Musician in the Rain' by Robert DoisneauWell, kids, it's the last Sunday in April and that means the end of the April Showers Mix. You can still access the tunes from Part 1 and Part 2 for a limited time.

OK, so now that we're through all three parts, feel free to complain about how song x wasn't featured here. My apologies to Guns 'N' Roses for not making the cut, but that's what they get for writing a song about rain that I don't like. And my apologies to Milli Vanilli for being too ridiculous to even consider.

"Singin' In The Rain," Gene Kelly - I'm singin' in the rain/Just singin' in the rain/What a glorious feelin', I'm happy again/I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above/The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love

"I Love A Rainy Night," Eddie Rabbitt - Well, I love a rainy night/It's such a beautiful sight/I love to feel the rain on my face/Taste the rain on my lips/In the moonlight shadow

"Rainmaker," The Rainmakers - And the rainmaker came to town/And the people got what they wanted/The rainmaker came to town/And everybody got what they need/The rain came falling down cats and dogs and buckets/And the rainmaker sailed away on a flood of relief

"Rain," The Cult - Hot sticky scenes, you know what I mean/Like a desert sun that burns my skin/I've been waiting for her for so long/Open the sky and let her come down/Here comes the rain/Here comes the rain/Here she comes again/Here comes the rain

"Another Rainy Night (Without You)," Queensryche - But now my take-out food is growing cold/And the candle's burned a hole in the floor/And I'm still waiting for the ring of the phone/I'm all alone/And it's another rainy night without you/Guess I'll leave the light on for you/It's just another rainy night without you

"The Rain," Oran "Juice" Jones - Now here you are begging to me to give our love another try/Girl I love you and I always will/But darling right now I've got to say goodbye/'Cause I saw you (and him) walking in the rain/You were holding hands and I'll never be the same

"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," BJ Thomas - Raindrops keep fallin' on my head/But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red/Cryin's not for me/'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'/Because I'm free/Nothing's worryin' me

"Let It Rain," Eric Clapton - The rain is falling through the mist of sorrow that surrounded me/The sun could never thaw away the the bliss that lays around me/Let it rain, let it rain/Let your love rain down on me

"Rain King," Counting Crows - Don't try to bleed me 'cause I've been there before/And I deserve a little more/I belong in the service of the Queen/I belong anywhere but in between/She's been lying and I've been sinking/And I am the Rain King

And to put an end to this rainy mix, here's a little bonus:

"Waitin' On A Sunny Day," Bruce Springsteen - It's rainin' but there ain't a cloud in the sky/Musta been a tear from your eye/Everything'll be okay/Funny thought I felt a sweet summer breeze/Musta been you sighin' so deep/Don't worry we're gonna find a way/I'm waitin', waitin' on a sunny day/Gonna chase the clouds away/Waitin' on a sunny day

I can't stop the rain.....

Nice to see some Gene Kelly in there. I was in love with him when I was younger.

I never said I was normal.

Singin in the Rain was on TV the other day. I love that movie.

I have to admit that Rain King is one of my guilty pleasures. Of course now that you know this, I can't let you live.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
