It's Raining Videos: 10 Songs About Stormy Weather

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

"It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring..." Wake him up, and wake yourself up, with these videos--mostly of the cheesy flashback variety--where rain reigns as motif supreme...and leads to lusting, contemplating, navel-gazing, and, thankfully, dancing. We apologize in advance for causing any hard-to-dislodge earworms. Blame it on the rain!

Milli Vanilla: "Blame it on the Rain"

Madonna: "Rain"

Nelson: "After the Rain"
