Ten Perfect Rainy-Day Songs

It’s a particularly crappy day in New York with what feels like a unending downpour already ruining our happy hour plans. With our socks and pants still soaked from running the four blocks from the subway to our office, it’s hard to forget the terrible weather outside as we sit in the toasty BlackBook offices. Never fear! We shall order our lunches to be delivered (and, yes, we will give generous tips), and we’ll spend the day listening to our favorite rainy-day songs. Come on, gang! Don’t let the miserable weather outside ruin your day! 

Garbage – "Only Happy When It Rains"

Gene Kelly – "Singin’ in the Rain"

The Carpenters – "Rainy Days and Mondays"

Elvis Presley – "Kentucky Rain"

Led Zeppelin – "Fool in the Rain"

Bob Dylan – "A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall"

Creedence Clearwater Revival – "Who’ll Stop the Rain"

Adele – "Set Fire to the Rain"

Tom Waits – "Rain Dogs"
