Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.” ~ 1971 song by the Carpenters

Actually, no.  I like the rain.  It rained Monday night.  Could that mean we have a cold front coming to Florida?  With visitors in town, I’ll have to stay tuned to the weather report!

Rain is the theme of many songs. Admit it, when you read these words, the timeless tune is running through your head!

Singin’ in the Rain – originally published in 1929:
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

Rhythm of the Rain – Cascades 1962:
Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

Who’ll Stop The Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival 1970:
Long as I remember the rain been comin’ down
Clouds of mystery pourin’ confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages tryin’ to find the sun
And I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain
