Ah, nice collection. You set me thinking about rain songs, and funnily, not even one English song comes to my mind.

My fave rain song happens to be Barso Re Megha from Guru. I love that song, and I love the way Shreya Ghoshal sang it. And I liked it despite Aishwarya, so it must be good!

And I also figured why your blogroll is showing a new post on my blog. Actually, I had updated one of my old posts because I was getting a lot of spam comments on it. So probably your blogroll thought that it was a new post and showed that 'New' sign.

@Robert any particular reason for hating axl rose? what about the rest of the songs I've listed?

@BSG The link u sent said this video is not available in my country. Then I searched and listened to the song..I missed it cuz I hadnt heard it before.

@Ish U know I was thinking of including some Hindi songs too and Barso re megha was the 1st that came to my mind :D But as I listen mostly to these I listed these. U dislike Aish?? Good to know that..cuz guys r like crazy over her.

Mostly the stuff you listed is too poppy for my tastes...You gotta realize ive heard most of these songs 100,000,000 million times on the radio.

Something more to my tastes would be(tho I dont think the song is really about a storm, sorry for the crappy recording quality, its a bootleg):

http://b.imagehost.org/download/0527/39_Riding_the_storm_out_live.mp3

Lyrics are something to the effect of:

Riding the storm out.

Waitin' for the fallout.

On a full moon night in the Rocky Mountain winter.

Wine bottle's low,

Watching for the snow.

I've been thinking about what I've been missing in the city...

But I'm not missing a thing!

Watching the full moon crossing the range.

Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out

Lady there beside me,

she's there to guide me.

She says that alone we've finally found our home...

The wind outside is frightening,

but it's kinder that the lightning life of the city.

It's a hard life to live,

but it gives back what you give.

And I'm not missing a thing...

Watching the full moon crossing the range.

Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Oh yes I am...

And I'm not missing a thing.

Watching the full moon crossing the range.

Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out
Riding the storm out

Riding, Riding, Riding the storm out!


And I hate axl rose because I think I think he is a whiney little weasel, and also a no talent hack.

or I was gonna say november rains by harry chapin, but you'll never find that online (hope you like lots of comments)

When November rains
it rides the cool wind
you need somebody holding you tight
When November rains
you need somebody caring
you want somebody sharing your night

(CHORUS)
When November rains
that's when it all falls down
there are clues
When November rains
and it's all around
and it seems that there's nothing left 'cept the dream
of the first sweet warm morning light
November rains into your deep, dark night

When November rains
midnight is calling
the old year is falling away
When November rains
It's like something is greiving
or somebody's leaving this day

(CHORUS)

November rains,
why don't you shine your warm sun on down
November rains,
why don't you keep me warm as sundown
Why don't you rain your warm sun down,
Down on me
Don't leave me

When November rains
something is needed
Somebody is sending an echo
When November rains
it's too late for praying,
it's like somebody's saying
don't follow

(CHORUS)

@ Reema: It tickles me no end - except when I am running in the rain here in London - that the moment the rains came down, the Indian blogs are full of songs and poetry. :-) It does not happen here and we have had loads of rain since April, including an almost tropical downpour I got caught in yesterday.

Sakhi said...

So, u belong to ahmedabad! Yes, the clean air and green leaves(whatever has left) do look wonderful.

we amdavadis should have one forum of amdavadi bloggers. What say?

Sakhi said...

@ish and reema

happy to know that there ARE guys who actually dislike aishwarya! yippeeeee. And i thought all the guys are ga ga over her...

yippeeee again...

Sakhi said...

Reema said...

@Robert dont worry abt the URL beinglong..as I said I get the comment in mail too..so in that whole url comes. Boy! u have flooded my comment section :D good good else u know its weekend which r dry days.

@Shefaly The poetry n songs come cuz in India rains comes after a long hot summer...u know happiness after long duration of pain brings out the romance in everyone.

@Sakhi Welcome to my blog!! Sad to say I m not from Ahmedabad..where did u get that? from my IP address? I use BSNL BB which is NIB (National Internet Backbone) based so it may show any place. Thanks for adding me :) Hope u wont delete after knowing I'm not a amdavadi :)Keep visiting.

Man of Roma said...

I would have also liked Hindi (or any other local Indian language) songs lol. Wonder how it feels in monsoon climates ... this waiting for the rain in hot weather and the extreme relief when finally rain falls. Here in Italy rain is only a nuisance....(well, not for the farmers tho)

Reema said...

Nice post! I have been hearing from all my friends about the excitement due to rain after the scorching heat - I am sure it must feel nice.

Keep smiling and keep posting,
