I was driving home tonight in a pretty heavy rain on Rt. 50 and heard the emergency signal on the radio. "Oh, it's a good idea to test that right about now. Smart." Only it wasn't a test.
Some heavy rain passed through the area today. It put me in mind of some rain songs.
I like this version of Dylan's classic.
They used to play this around 2:00 AM in this German bar where I used to get just obliterated. I liked it the first time I heard it. Then I hated it for a very long time. Then I liked it because it put me in mind of all the friends I used to get hammered with in that bar. I figured out there that Germans are incredibly sentimental. It tends to be hidden under about 10 cubic yards of granite, and a thick loden coat. But it's in there. Germans seem to love this song. On the merits. Which is weird.
And this is one I kind of liked before I figured out John Cougar Mellencamp was insufferably smug.
And this is just nice.
Yeah man. Everybody in music has to do a Rain song. It's the Rules.
And I guess some bands are just rain-themed.
Have fun this weekend. Ride strong.
