21 Favorite Songs About Rain

posted by vreiss

Like listening to breakup songs when you’ve been dumped, hearing songs about rain while it’s coming down make you feel less alone. They can even remind us that rain is kind of beautiful. Here are some of my favorites!

Click here to check out some of my favorite songs about rain!



  • Dena

    Now I have “It’s Raining Men” in my head.

  • Heartman

    A favorite movie scene, thank you. Another favorite movie rain song though not raining is RAIN DROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I have Happy childhood memories singing to it on the radio.

    I love rain (as long as it doesn’t last for a week): afterwards you can get some really good photos of water droplets (one of my favourite subjects), and it saturates the colours.

  • Karen Brown

    I never was much of a country fan, but I do like the song by Clint Black ‘Like the Rain’.

  • Seda

    Ooowh, don’t forget “Northern Downpour” by Panic at the Disco.
    Great song.
    They also have that old sounding song, “I Have Friends in Holy Spaces” which is about a rainy day.

  • DubipR

    Where’s The Cascades’ “Rhythm of the Rain”?

  • Donna Nichols

    Actually, the title of the Fleetwood Mac song is “Dreams”, not Thunder Only Happens When It’s Raining. It was their only #1 single and a shining example of Stevie Nicks’s magnificent songwriting talent.

  • MIKE

    I am glad someone mentioned Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head. It’s my favorite. CCR also has Who’ll Stop the Rain, Garth Brooks -The Thunder Rolls has good thunder sounds and one of Billy Joel’s early albums has Falling of the Rain with piano that feels like its raining.

  • George

    I’ll put the Tones On Tail song “Rain” up against any of my favorite Classic Rock rain songs any day of the week. It has an incredibly long intro, but actually turns into something of a love song in a pop vein. Fans of Brian Eno, Roxy Music, Eurithmics, Peter Gabriel and Talk Talk might get into this. For a best listening experience put this one on headphones and drift into the stratosphere, just when it’s about got you in Alpha waves it soflty kicks in with a hypnotic rhythm. Anyways, hope you enjoy… : )

  • Hector Calvillo

    So much rain so much pain,is it hait that blinds us all i see it in your eyes i see it in my dogs eyes,i see it in the rain, so much so much pain.

  • Greg Richardson

    “Rain will Fall” – I Mother Earth is my favorite….

  • http://bit.ly/axpdrH Joanna

    Here Comes the Rain Again–Eurythmics is my favourite. I agree with George. It is nothing better than listening to the alpha wave inducing music.

    I’ve been looking at lists of rain songs and was wondering how everyone left out “The Who” and then I looked it up and discovered why. The song I’ve been singing in my head is “Love Reign o’er me”. It does start out with the sound of rain in the background. I never paid attention to the spelling. Many of you missed the homonym in my name. hehehe

    What about “It’s a raining man”? It is also a song about rain! Love it!

  • Pat

    My all time favourite rain song is Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head by BJ Thomas

    Thank for sharing this songs after the rain. For me, rain is a song in itself. Hearing the rain is so relaxing but not storm of course. A simple rain can help you recall a lot about your past and it is very comforting.

Waking Up to Your Dreams (by Wendy Schuman)
Are you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am.

I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising from a wi
