Rainy Day Romance: 17 Love Songs That Mention Rain

It’s sunny here in California. My Wellington boots are tucked away in the closet waiting for the forecast to show some rain clouds. Spring sprung quite some time ago and yet many of us find ourselves reciting the phrase “April showers.” Why? Because that’s what happens in April — it rains.  And with rain showers comes inspiration whether it is in the form of a beautiful photograph, a quirky handmade find or a love song. Rainy days set the tone encapsulating feelings ranging from those experienced during a romantic encounter to a broken heart. These 17 songs are all sprinkled with variations of the word rain. Take a look at these music videos and a few of their lyrics and if I’ve missed any of your favorites please share it in the comments section.
