Songs About Rain

It's been rainy here in Ohio today, and I've been walking around singing rainy-day type songs.

It's no secret that I love the Carpenters, and Rainy Days & Mondays is a particular favorite of mine:



Ronnie Milsap's Smoky Mountain Rain is another good one...reminds me of listening to his records as a kid.



And probably my favorite song about rain, the Cascades - Rhythm of the Rain. I was around 11 the first time I heard it, and I've loved it since then. If my life had a soundtrack, this would definitely be on it.




There are tons of songs about rain, and I'm in a rainy day mood. So, what's your favorite song about rain?

This is the first time I am replying to a music thread. But this song popped into my head as soon as I saw the title of the thread. Now it is stuck there.

Garbage wins. I really hope they come back from hiatus soon.

How did no one post this yet?...


And, of course this isn't technically about rain either, but another obvious choice...
