- Rainy Night in Georgia – Brooke Benton – 1970
“Neon signs a-flashin’, taxi cabs and buses passin’ through the night A distant moanin’ of a train seems to play a sad refrain to the night A rainy night in Georgia, such a rainy night in Georgia Lord, I believe it’s rainin’ all over the world I feel like it’s rainin’ all over the world”
Me: I feel like it is raining all over Texas.
- Here Comes the Rain Again – The Eurythmics – 1984
“Here comes the rain again Falling on my head like a memory Falling on my head like a new emotion I want to walk in the open wind I want to talk like lovers do I want to dive into your ocean Is it raining with you?”
Me: Annie Lenox – need I say more?
- Who’ll Stop the Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival – 1970
“Long as I remember the rain been coming down Clouds of myst’ry pouring confusion on the ground; Good men through the ages, trying to find the sun And I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain”
Me: One of their best – more about dysfunctional America than you remember.
- Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head – B.J.Thomas – 1969
“Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed Nothin’ seems to fit Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep fallin'”
Me: Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Katherine Ross – no more info needed
- Don’t Rain on My Parade – Barbra Streisand – 1964
Don’t tell me not to live, Just sit and putter,
Life’s candy and the sun’s. A ball of butter.
Don’t bring around a cloud.
To rain on my parade.
Me: What a voice.
- Don’t Rain on Aggie Baseball – Aggie War Hymn – 2016
Me: Ok – I made that up and the Aggies do not have a rain song that I am aware of.
