It was raining this afternoon in Nashville. I popped out a question on Twitter, Facebook and around work because it seemed like the thing to do. I received some amazing responses, so I thought I’d post them here. Props are given and links to Twitter profiles (since they’re public).
Here’s the question I asked:
It’s raining in Nashville. What’s your favorite rain song? Mine is Raindrops are falling on my Head – B.J. Thomas.
Here are your kickin’ responses:
@stevegrossman – Purple Rain (Prince)
@thefourmckays – mine is “Singin’ In The Rain!”
@RAM1950 – Mine is Penny Lane. (…the fireman rushes in from the pouring rain, very strange.)
Derek Evenson – Feels like Rain (Buddy Guy)
Joe White – Raindrops are Fallin’ on my Head – B.J. Thomas
Nicole Vilhauer – I sing…”Rain, Rain Go Away!” especially in the winter! Although today it would be “Sing in the Rain” we need it!
Mindy Rott Mateuszczyk – I Wish it Would Rain Down – by Phil Collins.
Nicole Moore Batey – ‘Rainy Days and Mondays….’ : The Carpenters!!!!
Joe Veil – Lluvia caei by Enrique Iglesias Its in Spanish
Pamela Jean Syverson – Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain & Bring On The Rain
Jamie Crabtree – Thunder- Boys Like Girls. Shameless and unabashedly romantic.
Jesse Fletcher – CCR-Who’ll Stop the Rain
Rodger Shimp – It’s Raining Again – Supertramp
Kenn Stilger – My God Rains ! :)
Jamie Crabtree – Not necessarily a rain song, but Sara Bareilles “Come Round Soon” has some good lines in it about rain and thunder.
Chris Unick – “Thunderstorms and Neon Signs” – Wayne Hancock
Mike Wrye – God didn’t make little green apples and it don’t rain in indianopolis in the summertime (Roger Miller)
