Rain ... background or integral to a track

It started raining as I walked the dog this morning. Do you have a favourite track or album where rain features?
Here’s one of mine:

Not replying directly to your subject but I’m guessing it’s not a Staffie. My old girl (see avatar) would complain big time if she had to go out and get wet. Then, out for walkies on a fine day at the first sign of a river, puddle or whatever … straight in.
Gotta love ‘em.

Title track of this, I’m not usually too interested in sound effects on tracks, but the rain on Black Sabbath sets the mood immediately.

@Camphuw on the recent tour they were playing the sound of rain at the start for about 30 mins as people were getting seated. Very cool.

I think it’s pretty integral to this album.

My dog won’t go outside if it’s raining so we don’t need to soundtrack. As rain songs there’s way to many, The Beatles -Rain, Nick Lowe - Shame on the Rain, Karl Blau- Fallin’ Rain, Creedence Clearwater Revival- Who’ll Stop the Rain and so on.

Vangelis and Rutger Hauer monologue…“Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain”. Still my fav rain song, albeit short, sweet but never looses its beauty. Not a bad film either ;-). Enjoy your weekend one and all…R…
