Music Monday - Rain

It's been a cloudy and rainy day in Dubai today, so it seems fitting to dedicate this week's Music Monday to 'rain' songs.

In no particular order, here are my favourite songs about rain:
Gene Kelly's Singing in the Rain
The Carpenter's Rainy Days and Mondays
 a-ha's Crying in the Rain
BJ Thomas' Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
Garbage's Only Happy When it Rains.


"Im singing in the rain / Just singing in the rain / What a glorious feeling / I'm happy again"


"What I've got they used to call the blues / Nothing is really wrong, feeling like I don't belong / Walking around some kind of lonely clown / Rainy days and mondays always get me down"

"Someday when my crying's done / I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun / I may be a fool / But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain / I'll do my crying in the rain"

"Raindrops keep fallin' on my head / But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red / Cryin's not for me / 'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin' / Because I'm free / Nothin's worryin' me"

"I'm only happy when it rains / I feel good when things are going wrong / I only listen to the sad, sad songs / I'm only happy when it rains"
