Friday Open Thread ~ "Rain Songs" edition

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Bumped his head and he went to bed
and he couldn't get up in the mornin'
Rain rain, go away, come again some other day.


It's Raining

Rainy Day People

Summer Rain

Rhythm of the Rain

Kentucky Rain

Crying In The Rain

Rainy Night In Georgia

Have You Ever Seen The Rain?

Fire and Rain

A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall

Rainy Days and Mondays

At the End of a Rainbow


In the twilight glow I see them
Blue eyes crying in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we'd never meet again

Love is like a dying ember
And only memories remain
And through the ages I'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Some day when we meet up yonder
We'll stroll hand-in-hand again
In a land that knows no parting
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Now my hair has turned to silver
All my life I've loved in vain
I can see her star in heaven
Blue eyes crying in the rain

@JtC

Good pick JtC - but has Youtube tweaked their music somehow to make it sound tinny and crappy?

Betts and Johnny Rivers' Summer Rain both had the same lousy sound when attempting to listen to them. Well, we know YT is evil, but they keep managing to outdo themselves.

So many great songs on 'Realizations' - the 1968 album Summer Rain is on - Great versions of Positively 4th Street and Whiter Shade of Pale...

Fortunate to have that and the Dicky Betts on vinyl. Unfortunately, they're on another continent at the moment but at least memories have great sound quality.

@Blue Republic
probably transferred from vinyl with a low bitrate.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Who counts as an astronaut?? "Not Jeff Bezos, say new US rules."

Those who were around some time ago were familiar with the grueling training, physical and in-flight performance -- often years -- that NASA astronauts went through. Bezos and Branson did no more than don a spacesuit and take a little ride (oh, and write a lot of checks).
