Music and Songs about Rain

I really do like rainy days & nights, and similarly many of my favorite songs are "Songs about Rain." "Rainy Days and Mondays" don't really get me down, but this Monday Mobile, AL weather just has me thinking of them, so... "I'm just singing in the rain"...
Some of my favorites:

"Music is what feeling sounds like"
   “When the music changes, so does the dance” ~African Proverb
"Music is an outburst of soul." ~Frederick Delius
A painter paints pictures on canvas.  But musicians paint their pictures on silence.  ~Leopold Stokowski

Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.  ~Confucius

Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.  ~Ludwig van Beethoven

Music is the shorthand of emotion.  ~Leo Tolstoy




"Music profoundly affects my mood." ~Paige Vitulli

Ah! Thanks for the great music to get me through my Tuesday. This is my second post and I am glad I stopped in. Music has a profound effect on my mood and how I go about the rest of my day. When I hear Robert Plant's voice I get the chills and I am, of course, a huge Zeppelin fan. I'm not a fan of country music but who doesn't like Tim McGraw. Again, I thank you for the rainy day music, it has certainly changed my perspective on things. My summary of the posts will be added to my blog today February 1st. Here are the links to my blog as well as our class blog.

Glad you enjoyed the tunes! I think there is something for everyone. With that said, you couldn't be a bigger Zeppelin fan than I am; I even have tickets to listen to it "symphony style."

Where are you going to watch it at? Is Zeppelin playing with a Symphony? Or is it strictly symphony?

Kenneth Nelson said...

One more thing! I talked to my wife and told her that I was commenting on your blog. I believe she knows you from the education department. Her name is Carly Nelson, used to be Phillips.

Yes! I know Carly. Tell her I said hello. And Led Zeppelin music will be performed by the Mobile Symphony (not Robert Plant) but I'm sure it will be wonderful!

I love music as well. Many times when I am either having a good day or a bad day, there is always a song that I can think of that can make me feel better depending on the things that are going on.
