Care to share any songs that go well with the rain?

Asked by Joker94 (8175points) December 25th, 2011

If you haven’t visited yet, I highly suggest making your way to when you get the chance, and leaving the tab up while you blast some tunes. I dunno if I agree that rain makes everything better, but it certainly isn’t hurting a few of my favorites. Care to share any you think would gel? Here’s all I’ve got so far:
Exile Vilify by The National
Run Like Hell by Pink Floyd
The High Road by Broken Bells
Hackensack by Fountains of Wayne

@filmfann & @zenvelo Darn it! I completely overlooked that one! And I love The Who! On that note, did you ever hear Pearl Jam’s cover of that song? It’s magical, I promise.

@Bellatrix I’m familiar with a couple of those, like Fire and Rain, and I absolutely adore Red Rain. I’ll have to check out the others :)

You will find them all on YouTube @Joker94. I bet you know most of them when you hear them.

Oh no oh no don’t let the rain come down
Oh no don’t let the rain come down
Oh no don’t let the rain come down
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown.

I don’t know what song the chorus comes from, but I often sing it when it rains.

Bob Dylan’s Blood On the Tracks album. And Otis Redding’s Try A Little Tenderness, I’ve Got Dreams to Remember and I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.

Same Old Lang Syne
