Song of the Moment: “Rain”

No deep meaning behind this one…it’s just raining tonight. There is something very satisfying about big downpours of rain—it’s very cathartic. Plus, I love the excuse it gives me to hang around inside and watch a movie, take a bath, etc.

Not much deep meaning in this song, either—it’s Madonna, after all. When I was a kid, I took dance for about seven years, and I remember we used to warm up to this song, stretching out on the floor. This seems like the kind of memory I might have made up, but I feel like I remember doing those stretches one evening when it actually was raining out.

I have an entire playlist devoted to songs about rain, and this isn’t the best song on it, but somehow it’s always the one I want to listen to first when it’s raining out.

    I have an entire playlist of songs about sun :) Whenever it's a bright and sunny day, I just want to listen to upbeat songs about the sun. Maybe I need a rain playlist too!

    One of my favorite rain songs is “Stand in the Rain” by Superchic[k]. Also “Bring on the Rain” by Jo Dee Messina. I guess both of those are more about metaphorical rain.

    Me, too! I did a post last year about my zillions of playlists.

    “Bring on the Rain” is on my playlist, but I don't know “Stand in the Rain.” I should check it out.
