  • favourite rainy songs

    Lately i like to listen to this when it's raining:




    Well small change got rained on with his own .38
    and nobody flinched down by the arcade
    and the marquise weren't weeping
    they went stark-raving mad
    and the cabbies were the only ones
    that really had it made
    and his cold trousers were twisted,
    and the sirens high and shrill
    and crumpled in his fist was a five-dollar bill
    and the naked mannikins with their
    cheshire grins
    and the raconteurs
    and roustabouts said buddy
    come on in
    cause the dreams ain't broken down here now
    now ...they're walking with a limp
    now that

    small change got rained on with his own .38"
    and nobody flinched down by the arcade
    and the burglar alarm's been disconnected
    and the newsmen start to rattle
    and the cops are tellin' jokes
    about some whore house in Seattle
    and the fire hydrants plead the 5th Amendment
    and the furniture's bargains galore
    but the blood is by the jukebox
    on an old linoleum floor
    and it's a hot rain on 42nd Street
    and now the umbrellas ain't got a chance
    And the newsboy's a lunatic
    with stains on his pants cause

    small change got rained on with his own .38
    and no one's gone over to close his eyes
    and there's a racing form in his pocket
    circled "Blue Boots" in the 3rd
    and the cashier at the clothing store
    he didn't say a word as the
    siren tears the night in half
    and someone lost his wallet
    well it's surveillance of assailants
    if that's whatchawannacallit
    and the whores hike up their skirts
    and fish for drug-store prophylactics*
    with their mouths cut just like
    razor blades and their eyes are like stilettos
    and her radiator's steaming
    and her teeth are in a wreck
    now she won't let you kiss her
    but what the hell do you expect
    and the Gypsies are tragic and if you
    wanna to buy perfume, well
    they'll bark you down like
    carneys... sell you Christmas cards in June
    but...

    small change got rained on with his own .38
    and his headstone's
    a gumball machine
    no more chewing gum
    or baseball cards or
    overcoats or dreams and
    someone is hosing down the sidewalk
    and he's only in his teens

    small change got rained on with his own .38
    and a fistful of dollars can't change that
    and someone copped his watch fob
    and someone got his ring
    and the newsboy got his porkpie Stetson hat
    and the tuberculosis old men
    at the Nelson wheeze and cough
    and someone will head south
    until this whole thing cools off cause
    small change got rained on with his own .38
    yea small change got rained on with his own .38

    I've always loved this one, in the rain especially:


    the rain came down
    the rain came down
    the rain came down on me.

    the wind blew strong
    the summer song
    fades to memory

    I knew you when
    I loved you then
    the summer's young and helpless.

    you laid me bare
    you marked me there
    the promises we made.

    I used to think
    as birds take wing
    they sing through life so why can't we?
    you cling to this
    you claim your best
    if this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain.

    the nighttime creases
    summer schemes
    and stretches out to stay.
    the sun shines down
    you came around
    you love easy days.

    but now the sun,
    the winter's come.
    I wanted just to say
    that if I hold
    I'd hope you'd fold
    open up inside, inside of me.

    I used to think
    as birds take wing
    they sing through life so why can't we?
    you cling to this
    you claim your best
    If this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain.

    this winter song
    I'll sing along
    I've searched its still refrain
    I'll walk alone
    I've given this, take wing
    celebrate the rain.

    I used to think
    as birds take wing
    they sing through life so why can't we?
    you cling to this
    you claim your best
    If this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain
    I'll take the rain.

    r.e.m. - I'll take the rain (Reveal)

  • I can't sleep tonight
    Everybody saying everything's alright
    Still I can't close my eyes
    I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of all these lights
    Sunny days
    Where have you gone?
    I get the strangest feeling you belong
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Even when the sun is shining
    I can't avoid the lightning
    I can't stand myself
    I'm being held up by invisible men
    Still life on a shelf when
    I got my mind on something else
    Sunny days
    Where have you gone?
    I get the strangest feeling you belong
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Even when the sun is shining
    I can't avoid the lightning
    Oh, where did the blue skies go?
    And why is it raining so?
    It's so cold
    I can't sleep tonight
    Everybody saying everything's alright
    Still I can't close my eyes
    I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of all these lights
    Sunny days
    Where have you gone?
    I get the strangest feeling you belong
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Even when the sun is shining
    I can't avoid the lightning
    Oh, where did the blue skies go?
    And why is it raining so?
    It's so cold
    Why does it always rain on me?
    Why does it always rain...

    Travis - Why Does It Always Rain on Me?

    It's a cliché, I know, but hell... it's still a good song and one of the best rainy day soundtrack songs. I would also put couple of songs made by Ville Leinonen but unfortunately they're in Finnish so I don't know would they matter to anyone else but myself.

    The Temptations - I Wish It Would Rain

    Sunshine, blue sky, please go away,
    My girl has found another, and gone away
    With her went my future, my life is filled with gloom,
    So day after day, I stay locked up in my room

    I know to you it might sound strange,
    I wish it would rain (oh how I wish that it would rain)
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

    Cause so badly
    I wanna go outside (such a lovely day)
    Everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
    But listen, I got to cry, cuz crying, ooooooooh,
    Is the pain, oh yeah

    Yeah you know people, this hurt I feel inside,
    Words, they, could never explain,
    I wish it would rain (oh how i wish that it would rain)
    Oh let it rain, rain, rain, rain (oh how i wish that it would rain)
    Ooooooh baby

    Let it rain (rain, rain)
    Oh yeah, let it rain

    Day in day out, my tear stained face
    Pressed against my window pane
    I search the skies, well, desperately for rain
    Cause rain drops will hide my teardrops and no one will ever know
    That I'm crying (crying) crying (crying)
    When I go outside

    To the world outside my tears I refuse to explain,
    I wish it would rain (oh how I wish that it would rain)
    Rain, rain, rain (oh how I wish that it would rain)
    ooooh baby

    Let it rain
    I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes
    Yeah, You know I'm a man, I ain't got no pride,
    Til it rains, I'm gonna stay inside,
    Let it rain, Let it rain
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
    Oh how I wish that it would rain...

    I'm coming, I'm coming home to you
    I'm alive, I'm a mess
    I can't wait to get home to you
    To get warm, warm and undressed
    There been changes beyond my dreams, everybody wants me to sing
    There been changes beyond my grasp, things I'm sinking in

    So keep me, keep me,
    In your bed all day, all day
    Nothing heals me like you do
    Nothing heals me like you do

    And when somebody knows you well
    Well there's no comfort like that
    And when somebody needs you
    Well there's no drug like that

    So keep me, keep me
    In your bed all day, all day
    Nothing heals me like you do
    Keep me keep me
    In your bed all day, all day
    Nothing heals me like you do

    And when I’m home, curled in your arms
    And I'm safe again
    I'll close my eyes and sleep, sleep
    To the sound of London Rain

    So keep me, keep me
    In your bed all day, all day
    Nothing heals me like you do
    Keep me keep me
    In your bed all day, all day
    Nothing heals me like you do
    Nothing heals me like you do

    Nothing falls like London Rain
    Nothing heals me like you do

    Nothing falls like London Rain
    Nothing heals me like you do

    Richard Hawley | Can you hear the rain, love?

    <3

    Look into my eyes
    And stay for a while
    We can close our eyes, love
    And let the dreams come softly

    Can you hear the rain, love?
    Fall on your window
    Can you hear the rain, love?
    Gently fall

    Here comes another tear
    For the silence in me
    And as its darkness clears
    I wake you gently singing

    Can you hear the rain, love?
    Fall on your window
    Can you hear the rain, love?
    Gently fall

    Oh it seems so far away
    Oh it seems so far away
    Oh it seems so far away

  • Garbage - Only Happy When It Rains

    I'm only happy when it rains
    I'm only happy when it's complicated
    And though I know you cant appreciate it
    I'm only happy when it rains

    You know I love it when the news is bad
    And why it feels so good to feel so sad
    I'm only happy when it rains

    Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me
    Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on 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

    I only smile in the dark
    My only comfort is the night gone black
    I didn't accidentally tell you that
    I'm only happy when it rains

    You'll get the message by the time I'm through
    When I complain about me and you
    I'm only happy when it rains

    Pour your misery down, pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down on me pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down on me pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down on me pour your misery down
    Pour your misery down

    You can keep me company
    As long as you don't care

    I'm only happy when it rains
    You wanna hear about my new obsession?
    I'm riding high upon a deep depression
    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me

    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me
    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me
    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me
    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me ..

    jason molina - don't it look like rain

    The dark outside the world
    I think it looks like rain

    Don't it look like rain
    Don't it look like rain

    I wait for nothing now to change
    I don't think nothing now is gonna change

    The wolf outside my door don't need
    Anymore of my blood
    Of my blood
    She don't wait for nothing
    nothing anymore
    She's watching for nothing anymore

    Moon above my light
    Starts fading out
    Starts fading out
    Starts fading out

    I live for nothing anymore
    I live for nothing anymore
    I live for nothing

    Flash And The Pan - Walking in the rain

    Walking down the street
    Kicking cans
    Looking at the billboard
    Also ran
    Summing up the people
    Checking out the race
    Doing what I'm doing
    Feeling out of place

    Walking, walking in the rain

    Feeling like a woman
    Looking like a man
    Sounding like a no-no
    Make it when I can
    Whistling in the darkness
    Shining in the light
    Coming to conclusion
    Right is might is tight

    Walking, walking in the rain

    Come in all you jesters
    Enter all you fools
    Sit down no-no
    Ogre, ghouls
    Trip the light fantastic
    Dance the swivel hips
    Coming to conclusion
    Button up your lips

    Walking, walking in the rain
    Walking, walking in the rain

    words by jorge luis borges

    Bruscamente la tarde se ha aclarado
    porque ya cae la lluvia minuciosa.
    Cae o cayó. La lluvia es una cosa
    que sin duda sucede en el pasado.

    Quien la oye caer ha recobrado
    el tiempo en que la suerte venturosa
    le reveló una flor llamada rosa
    y el curioso color del colorado.

    Esta lluvia que ciega los cristales
    alegrará en perdidos arrabales
    las negras uvas de una parra en cierto

    Patio que ya no existe. La mojada
    tarde me trae la voz, la voz deseada,
    de mi padre que vuelve y que no ha muerto.

    Frank Sinatra - Singing in the rain
    I´m singing´ in the rain
    Just singing´ in the rain,
    What a glorious feeling,
    And I´m happy again.
    I´m laughing at clouds
    So dark, up above,
    The sun´s in my heart
    And I´m ready for love.

    Let the stormy clouds chase.
    Everyone from the place,
    Come on with the rain
    I have a smile on my face.
    I´ll walk down the lane
    With a happy refrain
    Just singin', singin' in the rain.

    Dancing in the rain.

    I'm happy again.

    I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain.

    Dancin' and singin' in the rain.

  • murat köseoğlu - yine yağmurlar yağıyor duygularıma

  • not directly about rain BUT MAN DOES IT FEEL IT

    i'm alone at the docks
    like the flotsam of ill seas
    i could float here for years
    and you still wouldn't know me

    so many dreams i used to dream
    never mind that now
    all the days that could have been
    never mind that now
    i'm outside

    reel my line in for good
    what made me think you could love me?
    all my chances are spent
    with no hope of belonging

    so many dreams i used to dream
    never mind that now
    all the days that could have been
    never mind that now
    i'm outside

    watch 'em glide, i'm left behind
    lead feet dancing out of time
    i'm alone at the dunes
    there's a storm coming soon

    so many dreams i used to dream
    never mind that now
    all the days that could have been
    never mind that now

    never mind that now

    Never Mind That Now

    imagine all the love return
  • The Beatles - Rain (B-side of Paperback Writer)

    If the rain comes
    they run and hide their heads
    They might as well be dead
    If the rain comes
    If the rain comes

    When the sun shines
    they slip into the shade
    and sip their lemonade
    When the sun shines
    When the sun shines

    Rain, I don't mind
    Shine, the weather's fine

    I can show you
    that when it starts to rain
    everything's the same
    I can show you
    I can show you

    Rain, I don't mind
    Shine, the weather's fine

    Can you hear me
    that when it rains and shines
    it's just a state of mind
    Can you hear me
    Can you hear me
