Day 196 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Three Tops - It's Raining
Happy Saturday! If you're like me, living in the mid-Atlantic region here in the States, the month of May hasn't been particularly helpful in allowing us to embrace the end of winter. It has been raining here continually nearly every day this month and I won't even go into complaining about April because it sucked too. So today's song "It's Raining" by the Three Tops and originally released in 1967 on the Treasure Isle label, is dedicated to the lousy start of 2016's spring... the hope is that this sweet tune, which really has less to do with inclement weather than with navigating those "muddy ruts" in our daily lives, will soothe Mother Nature a bit and allow the sadly absent sun to shine through those gray, inhospitable and ugly clouds. Dig it!
