Rain – A Playlist

To amuse myself, I make iTunes playlists. Below the fold is a playlist honoring the rain. I tried to remove all the “train” songs, and “brain” songs, and “Lorraine” songs, and so on, but maybe a few linger despite my best intentions. On the other hand, I left “rainbow”, and “raincoat” because, you know, that’s close enough. Stay dry! or stay wet!

parenthetical note: my Applescript1 only allowed me to select 100 songs at a time, so I broke my massive playlist into 4 sections.

Did I miss any?2

Do Just What You Used To Do
Do Just What You Used To Do

I sort this playlist in different ways, depending. For syncing to my iOS devices, I usually limit to 25 songs, “last played not in the last 31 days”, but for this list, I sorted by time, with longest songs at the top. If you want to borrow anything, let me know.

For the record, my favorite songs are probably, in no particular order, Five Stop Mother Superior Rain – Flaming Lips; One Rainy Wish and Rainy Day, Dream Away / Still Raining, Still Dreaming, all by Jimi Hendrix. Willie Nelson’s Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain is second, tied with the Beta Band’s Dry The Rain. Bob Dylan’s Buckets of Rain also a perennial favorite. I’m fond of So. Central Rain by R.E.M., and Planxty’s Cold BLow and the Rainy Night. And for some reason, I love to hear Eddy Rabbitt’s – I Love a Rainy Night, a country-pop classic from my teen years. I could go on, but I’m just going to enjoy listening to the rain instead, mixed with the sound of this playlist shuffled…

  2. also curious if Feedburner / Google will able to handle such a long post []

  1. notice that some title/albums are reversed. Must be an Applescript bug, they are correct in iTunes
