Just hit me today, "damn there are a lot of really good songs about rain"
Why are there so many good songs about rain?
We'll get to the bottom of that in future articles.
In the meantime, here's the semi-definitive ranking.
The Ocean - Led Zeppelin
Too loosely related but elite jam. Check back for best songs about water
The Rains of Castemere - Tywin Lannister & the Wings
badass concept for a song, even if fictional still a bop.
Who Will Stop the Rain? - Classic CCR, got this confused with another one of their hits
Okay here we go, top 7:
7. Have you Ever Seen the Rain? - Creedence Tapes
6. Fixing a Hole - The Beatles
5. Purple Rain - Prince
4. Rain - The Beatles
3. When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
2. Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin!
1. The Rain Song - Led Zeppelin!!
Zeppelin dominates the top of this list. The gods of rain songs...
Clearly a lot of unanswered questions here, let us know what you think,
