Playlist for a Rainy Day

All Hallow’s Eve began with dark skies and gloom, so naturally I have some favorite rainy-day songs stuck in my head. An additional bonus: These are great for helping you get through that inevitable Halloween sugar coma.

Vienna” – Billy Joel: Slow down, you crazy child, and take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while …

Crazy for You” – Adele: While I’m saddened she’s taking time off to heal her throat, I’m thankful we can still listen to her current smashing songs.

Uninvited” – Alanis: Something about Miss Morissette makes it impossible to have a list like this without her present.

Singin’ in the Rain / Umbrella” – Glee Cast: The originals are great, don’t get me wrong, but this mash-up is so perfectly paired.

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” – Johnny Cash: Sing it to me, Johnny (and other guy).

What the Water Gave Me” – Florence + the Machine: This would be perfect to fall asleep to, if it didn’t disturb the hell out of me.

The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” – The Postal Service: A soft male voice accompanied by upbeat bursts of synthetic sounds are all I need.

Candles” – Hey Monday: The power lines went out, and I am all alone —I don’t really care at all, not answering my phone … (do you notice a recurring theme here?)

The Cave” – Mumford & Sons: Slightly biased, but there’s no other song that calms me and quiets me quite like this one.

Superstar” – Sonic Youth: Equal parts gloomy and creepy, AKA the perfect ending.

What’s on your playlist for rainy days?
