Rain

July 23, 2021

Between wildfires and drought, other than we need it badly, I don’t have much to say about today’s RDP prompt, RAIN. But I do have a lot of songs I like with the word “Rain” in the title. Here are some of them:

Purple Rain
Early Morning Rain
Box of Rain
Let it Rain
Who’ll Stop the Rain
Laughter in the Rain
Singin’ in the Rain
Fire and Rain

I guess I just realized that there are a lot of songs with the word “Rain” in the title. And now that I’m thinking about the word “Rainy”, there are more:

Rainy Days and Mondays
Rainy Day People
Rainy Day Woman (Waylon, not Dylan)
Here Comes that Rainy Day Feeling Again

Enough of this. I wonder if I like songs about rain because I’m a water sign? Or maybe I’m Only Happy When it Rains? Nah, that’s Garbage.

Rain
Charles Bukowski

a symphony orchestra.
there is a thunderstorm,
they are playing a Wagner overture
and the people leave their seats under the trees
and run inside to the pavilion
the women giggling, the men pretending calm,
wet cigarettes being thrown away,
Wagner plays on, and then they are all under the
pavilion. the birds even come in from the trees
and enter the pavilion and then it is the Hungarian
Rhapsody #2 by Lizst, and it still rains, but look,
one man sits alone in the rain
listening. the audience notices him. they turn
and look. the orchestra goes about its
business. the man sits in the night in the rain,
listening. there is something wrong with him,
isn’t there?
he came to hear the
music.

So many rain songs, which one do I like the best right this minute to share? I like Springsteen and I like Prince and I like Purple Rain so when 1 + 1 +1 = 4 that’s what you go with.

    I Wish it Would Rain. The Temptations–not me. We have gotten plenty these past 2 months. My jungle of a backyard will back me up. **see what I did there?!** πŸ˜†

    Heck, out here in the NW corner of Arizona, any rain is welcome.
    I like “The Rain, The Park, And Other Things” by The Cowsills.
