Since it’s been raining all week in Montreal, our team has decided to compile a list of the ten best songs to listen to on a rainy day.
Let’s face it, as much as we like to complain about the weather, we also love to sing about it too. This is why loads of artists have written songs about rain— a cathartic theme that helps songwriters craft excellent melodies and evoke the power of nature in their songs. And it just so happens that many of these songs are real bangers!
Be it songs about actual rain or songs that use it as a metaphor for something else, some of the best songs ever written were inspired by one of life’s most prevalent natural interruptions.
Hang your umbrella up to dry, sit back and relax. It's time to dive into these tracks that make the perfect soundtrack for your rainy days.
