Rainy day music

Paul’s great song of the day suggestion for today, “Raining in Baltimore”, puts me in mind of rainy day songs. This article from the New Musical Express lists the top 20 songs about rain.  List like this are made to be debated and argued over. I agree with some of the choices here and disagree with others but I absolutely have to give a nod to “Purple Rain”. I think this might be one of the best songs in the last 40 years, not just a great song about rain

Since Paul’s rainy day song was a cover version, here’s another great cover version. Sometimes it just takes one great artist to do justice to the work of another great artist .
