Summer rain always comes, whether we like it or not. Even here in Texas, with a serious drought, the rain still manages to darken the summer day occasionally, even if it’s only for a few minutes. But, before you commit yourself to gloom when a storm rolls in, consider taking advantage of the weather to listen to some fitting music. Music about rain seems to give it a somewhat majestic and relaxing quality, so plan a fun summer day indoors and listen to the music blend with the sounds of falling rain- it will be sure to make a rainy summer day much more enjoyable!

All the music posted can be purchased on Amazon or iTunes.
