What is it about rain that makes poets, painters, musicians and artists in general ot be inspired so? To be inspired to create over and over again. Personaly, i love the rain. It cleanses the body and the soul. When i was in High-Scool, my friend and i, had a tradition. At the beginning of every winter, we would wait for the first rain of the season and go out without an umbrella. We would walk, dance and goof around in the rain. I also love it when its pouring rain outside and i'm cuddled deep in the blankets. Lying in my bed and listening to the rythem of the rain. Rain has it's own rythem, sound, movment. A tempo to dance to.
So many songs have been written about rain or how rain makes them feel. It's so universal. As i was preparing the play list for this week's show, i discovered more and more. For some it's joy and for some tears of pain and loss. This Wednesday night, we'll take a very special musical journey to the depth of rain songs.
