"Rain" songs

I was inspired by the "fruit" thread and was hoping to get help compiling a playlist of Prince songs that mention "rain" in them (as I have always been fascinated by songs that involve rain...my favorite non-Prince "rain" song being Herb Albert's "Making Love in The Rain" which of course has it's own Prince influence due to it being a Jam/ Lewis production).

The obvious songs that come to mind are:

--Purple Rain

--17 Days ("let the rain come down")

--Rasberry Beret ("the rain sounds so cool as it hits the barn roof")

--Hallucination Rain

--Joy in Repetition ("she only said the words again and it started to rain...)

Can u guys think of others "rain" songs? Thanks in advance for your help..... biggrin

PS The list covers up through 3121.

And I just referenced the old DTT-lyrics page on archive.org. I pulled up each album, and just did a page search for the word "rain". Even I was surprised at some of the results.

Good reminder! I edited my list and included a handful of b-sides.

I didn't check the internet-only releases. Someone can add to that if they want to do it.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Did that one. I sorta wish he'd put SST on one of the HNR albums.
