If you happen to see a lady standing under the rain capturing the moment in still photo or video - that is probably me!
Up to you if you consider me insane. but hey don't you know this is the reason why I chose a waterproof mobile phone? So I can capture the rain anytime that I'll be caught at the moment.
Dunno why, but the rain is my cathartic to a lot of things, It makes me feel calm. Makes me think logical. Makes me break the hiatus on about anything. Motivates me to write (and I'm redundant on anything about the rain so forgive me).
Anyway, you might have noticed by now that this is not the first time I posted a rain video on my social media accounts. I think just the other night I also posted one. Though I didn’t like that one much because there was lightning and thunder. It's not calming nor cathartic. I like the rain but not the storm .
So just to make this one different, I'm going to share another idiosyncrasy of mine on being a pluviophile. When it's raining I'm playing songs about rain... go ahead laugh! But you might want to listen to my "Pluviophile List"
10. Rain by Creed
9. Early Morning Rain by Peter Paul and Mary
8. Crying In The Rain - Cover by A-Ha
7. Rhythm Of The Rain By Cascades
6. November Rain by Guns N' Roses
5. Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival
(This is a 1970's song but I also like the 2006 Rod Stewart cover)
4. Tag-ulan by After Image
3. Ulan - (I love the original by Rivermaya but) Bamboo's version is gold
2. Ulan by Cuesh
1. Sa Tuwing Umuulan - Earser Heads Cover (Regine Velasquez cover when I'm feeling "emo")
I just listed ten songs but there's actually more. What about you? Do you play songs about rain when it's raining?
If anybody is searching among my list the song "Basang-Basa Sa Ulan" by Aegis - it's not in there but I play it when I'm trying to annoy a person who's on emo due to a heart problem . I usually play this song when the person is least expecting it and it never fails to make everybody laugh ha ha.
