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.

  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
