With last week’s rainy weather in our rear view mirror and warmer days forecasted for this week, we can rest easy knowing that we don’t need our umbrellas and raincoats on our way to class. However, those days where we spend all day inside, cozied up during a thunderstorm are still to come. Here’s some music for the next rainy day that you spend indoors.
1. “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” – Gary Allen
- “This Too Shall Pass” – Danny Schmidt
- “I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues” – Elton John
- “Secret for the Mad” – Dodie
- “Ain’t No Reason” – Brett Dennen
- “The Forecast” – Jason Mraz
- “Bad Day” – Daniel Powter
Not every rainy day is going to be a good day. In fact, most of them aren’t. If you’ve ever been caught walking home in a thunderstorm without an umbrella or bringing in groceries during a heavy rain, this song is the perfect song to play once you get inside and dried off.
- “Knots” – Watsky
- “The A Team” – Ed Sheeran
- “How to Save a Life” – The Fray
- “All I Want Is You” – Matthew Ebel
- “Cancer” – My Chemical Romance
- “Short Change Hero” – The Heavy
This song starts with rain in the background while the music gradually fades in, so this is the perfect song for this playlist. The first minute and a half of this song sets a dreary tone while the sounds of a thunderstorm continue in the background. Plus, it is just really catchy.
- “Don’t Drop Dead Juliet” – Capital Lights
- “Those Days Are Gone, And My Heart is Breaking” – Barton Carroll
- “Drops of Jupiter” – Train
- “Tiny Dancer” – Elton John
I had such a hard time deciding on just one Elton John song to include in this playlist, so I went with two. While the previous Elton John song on this list is sadder and fits with the overall tone of this list, “Tiny Dancer” still has a mellow feel to it that is perfect for a rainy day.
