Nowadays, it seems like it’s raining every day, putting a damper on everyone’s mood with the gray sky and the fact that everything is wet. I’ve compiled a list of songs perfect for listening to on a rainy day, some slow and quiet to match the tone of the day and others upbeat because heavy rain shouldn’t prevent you from having a positive attitude about the day. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs while looking at the rain dripping down your window while you are cozied up inside!
1. “Vacation” – Florist
But at least I know that the world is spinning when we’re tangled in the bedsheets
And at least I know that my mom is breathing when we talk on the phone
2. “I Stand Corrected” – Vampire Weekend
Forget the protocol
I’ll take your hand
Right in mine
3. “Wanderer Wandering” – Slow Club
Now it’s all making sense and I don’t feel so mad
And all that’s left to do is sing it out loud
I’ll still be singing all the way home
Cause you’ll always hear the thunder
When you’re a wanderer wandering
4. “The Good Side” – Troye Sivan
I’m sure we’ll meet in the spring
And catch up on everything
I’ll say I’m proud of all that you’ve done
You taught me the ropes, and you taught me to love
5. “PPP” – Beach House
Did you see it coming?
It happened so fast
The timing was perfect
Water on glass
6. “In San Francisco” – Told Slant
I hope my sister grows up
and thinks that the world is beautiful
7. “I Will Possess Your Heart” – Death Cab for Cutie
How I wish you could see the potential
The potential of you and me
It’s like a book elegantly bound
But in a language that you can’t read just yet
8. “The Sea Is a Good Place to Think of the Future” – Los Campesinos!
With the salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier
You may look down at your model’s feet
And wish that you’d just float away
And the weather here is overcast
And the sea is the same shade of grey
Next time it is raining, get inside, make sure to stay dry and warm, and listen to this playlist and let the music help you forget about the storm outside and help get you through any rainy day. Happy listening! If you want more song recommendations, check out my playlist of songs to motivate you!
