With our region finally getting some much needed precipitation thanks in part to former hurricane Gustav and three more storms making their way through the Atlantic, I felt like “Rain” was an appropriate subject for this fifth day of September. So grab your umbrellas, here we go:
Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain – Willie Nelson , does Willie really need an intro? I didn’t think so!
I Wish It Would Rain – Nanci Griffith, beautiful song by a fantastic songstress. ‘Nuff said!
Milli Vanilli – Blame It On The Rain, not technically on the iPod but I just had to include it for obvious reasons which we won’t elaborate on! (hehehe)
Rain – The Beatles, (for Brother Will) Widely considered The Beatles’ finest B-Side, and according to George Harrison, the precursor to Mtv!
Black Rain – Ben Harper, nope – not “Chocolate Rain.” Even better, as long as you enjoy angry, politically charged rock and roll! (sorry if the video below doesn’t work right for you. but I couldn’t find anywhere near as good a version of it on YouTube…)
