Kentucky Rain

Its rained on and off all weekend here in Lexington, but tonight as I settled in with a book it started coming down hard.  I had the windows open and the sound and smell of the rain was beautiful.  Soon I found myself thinking about all of the great songs that have been written about rain, I have a ton in my collection alone so I started making a mix so I could listen to songs about rain at work tomorrow.

I'm going to share - even though it means exposing some of the more embarrassing aspects of my music collection.  There are songs from every genre represented, some recent songs and some that I remember my parents playing when I was just little.  Some things haven't changed in the last 30 years - artists are still finding inspiration in the beauty of the rain.

The title of this post comes from the most appropriate song in my collection, Elvis' "Kentucky Rain"

I love the smell of rain! And I love I Love A Rainy Night. That song brings back so many memories from growing up!
