Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Posted by at 12:49PM

It’s that time of year again.  Bust out the squeaky boots, jackets, and umbrellas, ’cause it’s raining.

But don’t let that get you down.  Instead, appreciate the musical genius that’s been inspired by this meteorological phenomenon over the years.  Here’s my sweet 16 of great songs about rain.

  1. Fool in the Rain – Led Zeppelin
  2. Have You Ever Seen the Rain? – Creedence Clearwater Revival
  3. JTR – Dave Matthews Band
  4. Riders on the Storm – the Doors
  5. Africa – Toto
  6. Who’ll Stop the Rain? – Creedence Clearwater Revival
  7. Dreams – Fleetwood Mac
  8. Rain – MIKA
  9. Fire and Rain – James Taylor
  10. Streets of Love – the Rolling Stones
  11. Purple Rain – Prince
  12. Here Comes the Rain – Eurythmics
  13. Standin’ in the Rain – ELO
  14. Sultans of Swing – Dire Straits
  15. Penny Lane – the Beatles
  16. After the Rain Has Fallen – Sting

Feel free to comment with your favorites – I’d love to expand my rainy day playlist.

    Fool in the Rain over The Rain Song? For shame…

    “It’s Raining Again” by Supertramp?

    A cursory search of my iTunes yields an entire Enya album “A Day Without Rain” and a bunch of Yanni songs. That disconcerts me greatly.

    But how about Bob Dylan–A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall?

  4. George says:

    What about “Box of Rain” by The Grateful Dead??? Absolutely essential to any rain playlist. So is “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson.

  5. Marty says:

    3 am by MB20

  6. Shane says:

    “Why Does It Always Rain on Me?” by Travis is a necessity.

  7. CJ says:

    Leaving out “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses is sacrilegious.
