Playlist for a Rainy Day

After an unusually dry and beautiful autumn, the rain seems to have set in for good. Walking the dog yesterday required full-on rain gear from head to toe! Albert loves the rain of course, but his human is slightly less enamoured…

Having recently rediscovered Spotify (why did I ever stop using it?), I thought I would create a playlist for rainy days – something relaxing to listen to while the rain is beating on your window. Somehow it became a multilingual playlist – and if forced to make a choice, I’d say rain sounds best in French. But there are also plenty of beautiful songs about the rain in English, German, Italian, Swedish and Norwegian. (I tried finding songs in Spanish as well, but Spanish speakers must really love the rain – the songs were too upbeat to fit in with the rest of my mellow selection.)

I hope you will enjoy my rainy day playlist, which is best enjoyed on shuffle play. And if you can think of songs that ought to be added to the list, please let me know!

*hums* Toute la pluie tombe sur moi… ♫

  1. I can only see down as far as no.7 and for some reason can’t find it on Spotify, but it looks like a good list. One of my all-time favourites is an old one from the 60s but I love it – Rhythm Of The Rain by the Cascades. If you’ve not already got it on there have a listen and see what you think.

    As for the weather, it’s definitely changed here since my canal/woodland walk on Sunday – Monday was dry but very cold, yesterday and today raining, although it was forecast for snow. Looks like we’re definitely heading into winter now 🙁

    1. Hi Eunice, if you mouse over the list, you should be able to scroll down and see all 72 songs. Thank you so much for suggesting Rhythm of the Rain, I can’t believe I forgot that one! It is one of my all-time favourites as well, I first heard it when I took part in a swing dance course when I was 14. I got to know and love a lot of 60s music at those dance lessons! 🙂 I’m sorry you couldn’t find the playlist on Spotify, I think there may have been a slight error in the link – hopefully it should work now.

      1. I’ve just managed to scroll down and see the whole list, you’ve also got another of my great favourites on there – It Never Rains In Southern California. I’ve loved that one since it very first came out 🙂
