Welcome to Friday, the end of the workweek and another new topic for the Friday Music Blog. While formulating a topic for today I kept hearing the deafening sound of the persistent rain falling. Rainstorms have beaten my state on Monday and then on Thursday and through the overnight into today. Many areas are flooded, houses ruined, and streets impassable without boats. I am fortunate to live on very high ground and am not in harm’s way, but I feel for those who are.
The topic, thus, that makes the most sense to me is songs with “rain” in the title or in the lyric. By opening the topic to wider parameters, a more comprehensive list can be constructed. So, see how many songs you can think up and list for this category. All genres, including children’s music, are admissible.
On Sunday this weekend, my middle boy’s half birthday, I will have been working on Chief 187 Chatter for a full six months! For half a year I have written every weekday (and one or two weekend days) for this site I created. And, for the most part, you all have been with me every step of the way. I thank you sincerely and hope each day when I post a topic you’ll be there to read it, leave your comments, and check back. It has been an incredible experience and one that I am fully committed to continue. We are on the brink of 10,000 pageviews – we have a few more hundred to go to reach that milestone. That number simply blows my mind! When we reach it, we’ll be doing some serious celebrating! In the meantime each pageview and each comment mean the world to me.
I look forward to reading your lists of songs that have “rain” in the title or in the lyrics. I’m delighted to begin a new week of blogging on Monday and to embark on the second half of this first year. And I am so thankful to have you all here along for the ride. Have a wonderful weekend, stay safe, enjoy, check out the comments throughout the weekend, and see you all back here on Monday!
