Question Of The Day


"Let it rain" by fellow Canuck, Amanda Marshall, one of my favourite female musicians. I had the pleasure of watching her perform this song at one of her concerts I attended many years ago in Montreal during my single mom (and crazy interesting online dating) days. She’s a tiny little thing with a very powerful and beautiful voice.



How about you? Can you name a song that mentions the weather?

  1. It is interesting how many songs do mention the weather! I'll mention "Showers of Blessings" but I can think of some sunshine/sunbeam songs too.

    1. That is true! When I first tried to answer the question, I couldn't come up with more than a couple of songs. The more I thought about it, the more songs popped into my head!

  2. Today it's the classic song and it seems appropriate for the current weather: "Singing In The Rain"

  3. "Fire and Rain" by James Taylor. "Sunny Days" by that classic Canadian band, Lighthouse. That's all that pop into my head at the moment! Oh, and that old torch song "Stormy Weather."

  4. 'Rain Drops Keep Falling on My head' but being musically challenged I don't remember who sang it. :)

    1. I was just going to say this one, it's BJ Thomas and I have been listening to one of his albums!

    2. Nice choice, Francie! I wasn't sure either who sings that so I looked it up. This lovely song goes all the way back to 1969, and it was sung by B. J. Thomas.

    3. And after I looked it up, Christine provided the info! All that work (clicking on a mouse) for nothing... :)

  7. Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain, from ages ago when I was a teenager. We had rain overnight and today it is foggy and damp.

    1. That is a lovely song! I haven't heard that in ages. It goes quite far back. But such a sweet tune.

  8. Eddie Rabbit's "I love a rainy night." Or how about a "Rainy Night in Georgia?"

    1. Oooh...good choices, especially "I love a rainy night"; a definite favourite of mine. My blogging friends are coming up with some really great music.

  9. I know most of the ones mentioned. I will reveal my age by adding Singing In The Rain. My favorite weather songs are Stormy Weather and Fire and Rain.

    1. You are the first to finally add a song that I don't know: Stormy Weather. The others I know and really like!

    1. That's okay. It's hard to come up with these things sometimes.

  11. It's Raining Men, Orange Colored Sky, Stormy Weather,Winter Wonderland, Raindrops (oldie) to name a few, but I am a music nerd.

  12. Hi Martha,

    "Now, I don't care what the weather man says
    When the weatherman says it's raining
    You'll never hear me complaining, I'm certain the sun will shine"

    Jeepers Creepers, Louis Armstrong.

    Have a lovely Sunday and a peaceful Thanksgiving, eh!

  13. The Carpenter's 'Rainy days and Mondays' is in my head now. Other than 'Its Raining Men' by various artistes.
    I happen to like the rain very much.

    1. Rain can be very relaxing and soothing. We need those days, too.

  14. 'Raindrops keep falling on my head' ... comes to mind, and also 'Ain't No Sunshine' ...

    All the best Jan

    1. Oh, both great choices, Jan! I hope you've had a lovely weekend.

  15. Yep, I too thought of It's Raining Men, and there was a New Zealand band called Dragon who had a song simply titled Rain. There's B*Witched's Blame it on the Weather Man, A-Ha does Crying in the Rain, Mika had a song called Rain, Chantoozies (80 Aussie group) has Weatherman, Crowded House has Weather With You. There's Sunshine on a Rainy Day, Good Morning Sunshine, Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles, Pocketful of Sunshine.

    I raided my itunes and there are so many more.

    1. And the list goes on and on... I couldn't come up with a single tune when I first saw the question. And then BOOM an avalanche of songs! :)

  16. I was the first to comment--maybe I'll get to be the last too! Anyway, after reading/skimming all the titles others mentioned, I can still think of a few more Christian songs: "It's Beginning to Rain" by the Gaithers, "I'll be a Sunbeam" (hymn), "Rushing Wind" by Keith Green, and "I Feel the Rain."

    "Sisters" by Bette Midler is also a fun song--though it doesn't have weather in the title, it does have it in the chorus, if that counts!

    1. I'll have to look some of these up, Bethany! And I'm a fan of Bette Midler, so the "Sisters" tune definitely counts :) I'm not sure I know this one. I'll have to look that up, too!

  17. "Every little breeze seems to whisper Louise!" That would be Maurice Chevalier's "Louise." Lovely summer breezes are weather! I would have to say "Rain" by the Beatles. I played it over and over the first time I read "Return of the King," Tolkien's third volume in LOTR. And I'll balance that with "Here Comes the Sun", also by the Beatles! How about Ian and Sylvia's "Four Strong Winds" and Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" or "Song for a Winter's Night." But my favorites are Van Morrison's "Moon Dance," Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash's "Girl from the North Country," and Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson's Winter Song." Wow! I could keep going ... Creepy: the Doors "Riders on the Storm." Okay, I'll stop, Martha!!! Fun question!

    1. HAHAHA! I love this. A whole load of them. Most of them I recognize, some I'm not so sure about. And I'll have to check out Ingrid Michaelson's Winter Song. She has an amazing voice.
