Every season brings different emotions with them. For instance, summer is associated with bright and happy life. Winter on the other hand might bring sadness and blues with it. However, the one thing that can be associated with every emotion would be rain. Certainly, Rain can depict happiness, a dancing and enjoyable mood. On the contrary, it can also turn your depression button on. And when these emotions are adapted in songs, some of the beautiful songs are created. Hence, here is the list of Rain songs that hit your emotions in the last decade!
Rain On Me
If we talk about rain and human emotions, nothing can be better than “Rain On Me”. As described by Lady Gaga, this song is a “celebration of tears”. The song goes-
“I’d rather be dry, but atleast I’m alive
Rain on Me…”
Clearly, it talks about moving ahead despite the hardships of life. Sung by Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga, the song was released in May 2020 for Gaga’s album “Chromatica”. The song’s upbeat house themes and funk guitars made it a disco song. With such legendary singers behind the song, it was figuratively critically acclaimed. Moreover, it was nominated in the 63rd Grammy Awards and MTV Music Awards.
Make it Rain
Unlike Gaga’s “Rain On Me”, Make it Rain by Bruno Mars is what people associate rain with. This song is a classic representation of sadness of breaking up with rain and dark clouds. Released in the beginning of the last decade (September 2011), this song by Bruno Mars was highly praised. Moreover, the song was the lead single from the movie soundtrack of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 1”.
On the other hand, “Make it Rain” was a commercial success as well. The way it features the singer dealing with various emotions while struggling with the breakup impressed the audience. In other words, this song has everything that a person might look for in a Rain song!
Set Fire to the Rain
Another hit rain song of the decade would be Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. It was a part of Adele’s album 21, released in July 2011. Instantly, the song reached top on the charts, and was voted as people’s favorite number one hit of 2012.
“Set Fire to the Rain” is a classic Adele song, which talks about difficulty in a relationship and hardships of letting it go. Certainly, the song received positive reviews from the critics. Moreover, the song has won BMI London Award, BMI Pop Award and a Grammy Award.
When It Rains It Pours
The name of the song seems quite literal, but it talks about a man, who gains a streak of luck after his girlfriend left him. “When It Rains It Pours” by Luke Combs was derived from his personal experiment. It was released in June 2017 from his debut album “This One’s For You”. Certainly, the song became a commercial and critical hit. Above all, it was certified 3x Platinum by RIAA.
Moreover, this song became Luke’s second number-one country hit. Also, “When It Rains It Pours” was nominated in the CMT Music Awards 2018.
