Warm cookie alert!!!

In what is possibly the best use of the internets ever, I just found out that Specialty's sends out warm cookie alerts. Chip and Jenny just left the office to get some semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies because they sent out an email announcing a freshly baked batch.

It was raining moderately today on the way to work, which in California terms means torrential downpour, and I can't explain why, but it was super fun! I was grinning the whole way. Then the wind kicked up and my jeans ended up soaked to the thigh. Good thing I have a pair of shorts at the office that I changed in to and then abused the server room by draping my wet jeans over a chair right in front of the fan. Four hours later and they're completely dry! :D

In honour of the rain, I have listened to all the songs I have on my work machine that have "rain" in the title:
Jane Siberry - It Can't Rain All The Time
Missy Elliott - The Rain
Belinda Carlisle - Summer Rain

Unfortunately, I think that's all I've got here. :P Any other rain songs y'all like? I can probably find 'em on YouTube.

heather nova - london rain

Not exactly rain, though.

Heather Nova! That's a name I haven't heard in a few years. I like that. :)

"Here Comes the Rain Again" - Eurythmics
"Red Rain" - Peter Gabriel

However, amusingly enough, I actually have a friend of mine who put together a fanfic mix CD of songs all having to do with 'rain'. I don't have a copy of it, but I heard a second friend playing it once and telling me about this. :)

I was just listening to "Sweet Dreams" earlier!

Ahh, I haven't heard "Blame it on the Rain" in years! I used to really like that song. And I recently heard "Blow Me Away" by Breaking Benjamin and really liked it, hee! I like all of those.

"Rain" (I have one by The Beatles and one by The Cult)
"Purple Rain" by Martin Sexton (a cover done by a guy I love who I would never have heard about if not for littlestclouds); also "Caught In The Rain" by the same guy
"English Summer Rain" by Placebo
"Raindrops" by Regina Spektor
"The Beauty of the Rain," by Dar Williams
"January Rain" by David Gray
"Fire and Rain" by James Taylor
"Raining Next Door" by Ringside
"Rainy Monday" by Shiny Toy Guns
"Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" by Travis

And yes, I have all of them. I have the Milli Vanilli one that boardnow mentioned. I'll be happy to share any that you want.

Ooh, I like the Placebo one and Raining Next Door a lot! January Rain, The Beauty of the Rain, Fire and Rain are good too!

Ahh, Milli Vanilli, how I loved their songs. :P

THAT SONG BY FLO RIDA, "LOW" THAT STARTS OFF "MAKE IT RAIN!!" IS PRETTY MUCH THE BEST THING EVER BECAUSE IT IS A SONG ABOUT BIG BOOTY-ED WOMEN IN APPLE BOTTOM JEANS AND BOOTS WITH THE FUR.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THIS WAS GOING.

OH YES!! RAIN!!!! MAKE IT RAIN!! This is my new favorite phrase, EVER.

... what kind of "rain" exactly are they talking about?

I like that Jane Siberry song, but haven't listened to it in aaaages. I should pop it onto my iPod at some point. :) Uh... though I think I need to find the CD first and put it back on my computer. I lost it the last time my computer crashed.

Here are all the "rain" songs on my computer. Some I like more than others:
Amanda Marshall - Let it Rain
Billie Myers - Kiss the Rain
Bob Dylan - Rainy Day Women
CCR - Have You Ever Seen the Rain
CCR - Who'll Stop the Rain
Counting Crows - Rain King
Counting Crows - Raining in Baltimore
Evanescence - Listen to the Rain
Garbage - Only Happy When it Rains
Gordon Lightfood - Rainy Day People
Guns 'n' Roses - November Rain
I Mother Earth - Rain Will Fall
Milli Vanilli - Blame it on the Rain
Wide Mouth Mason - Midnight Rain


Is that enough? ;) Also, my icon is of a rainstorm outside my parents' house!

(BTW, warm cookie alerts may be the solution to world peace, seriously...)

It Can't Rain All The Time kind of destroyed me the first time I heard it during the credits of The Crow. It was a combination of really loving the movie and being touched by the ending, and also knowing that Brandon Lee was dead. It still has a really strong effect on me even now.

Ahh, Only Happy When it Rains, November Rain and Blame it on the Rain! That's a blast from the past. Good stuff.

I like the Counting Crows songs, Midnight Rain and Rain Will Fall (which would make a good Rock Band or Guitar Hero song *coughs*)

*sigh* They're really good cookies, too...

Sao Paula Rain by Tom McRae is an amazing song.

There's a Clint Black song I like called "Like the rain" So if you like country you might like it haha

I don't like country, but I do like this song. :)

Dreams - Fleetwood Mac (it's the one with the line "thunder only happens when it's raining")
A Little Fall of Rain - from Les Miserables
Flood - Jars of Clay (yes, they're a Christian band but the song is good anyway)
Blame it on the Rain - Milli Vanilli
Raindrops Keep Fallin On my Head -
Foolish Game - Jewel
Have You Ever Seen the Rain - CCR
Horse With No Name - America
I Can See Clearly Now - Jimmy Cliff
Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage
Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics

Les Miz!!! *siiiiiiighs* I like that one, and so many others from that musical. :)

Nobody mentioned "No Rain" by Blind Melon??? *tear*

Also...
"Rain" by Candlebox
"Can't Keep The Rain" by Black Lab
"Another Rainy Night (Without You)" by Queensrÿche (they also do an amazing cover of Peter Gabriel's "Red Rain")
"Rain on the Scarecrow" by John (Cougar?) Mellencamp
"Rain in the Summertime" by the Alarm

And, um, "Rainbow In The Dark" by Dio. O.o

Oh oh oh! No Rain! Fun song and fun video. :)

I like Rain in the Summertime! But/And it's very '80s, haha.

That is really enough to bring tears to my eyes. I have told you countless times about how warm cookies at the dining hall kept me alive, yes? Ah, the memories. Also, walking past Pacific Cookie Company on my way to work and being lured in by the smell of fresh warm cookies. Mmmm.

...incredibly, I have only ONE song on my iPod with rain in the title, a song by the Mountain Goats called (rather appropriately) "Rain Song".

It's seriously one of the best ideas ever! And Specialty's cookies *siiiiiigh* so soft and wonderful.

I shall listen to it tomorrow! I think Roz is asleep now, hehe.

Some of these were named already, but I did a search in my iTunes. So! Consider it a second vote for them?

After the Rain, Blue Rodeo
The Beauty of the Rain, Dar Williams
I Have Seen the Rain, Pink
It Looks Like Rain, Jann Arden
Let It Rain, OK Go
A Little Fall of Rain, Les Mis
Rain, The Beatles
Rain Down On Me, Blue Rodeo
Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, BJ Thomas
Rainy Day Women #12 & 35, Bob Dylan? ahahah, probably not
Rhythm of the Rain, The Cascades
September In the Rain, The Beatles (that is a suuuuper early Beatles song, almost doesn't even sound like them)
Standing In the Rain, Billy Talent
Sunshine Lollipops & Rainbows? hahaha, I loved Leslie Gore when I was a little kid
West Coast Rain, Captain Tractor
Why Does It Always Rain On Me, Travis, which I only have because newspapers here always give out free CDs or DVDs and this was in The Times one Sunday. I don't think I've even listened to it.

Whoa! I would never have pegged you as a country fan. :P Standing in the Rain is pretty cool; it would make a good song for Guitar Hero, hehe!

Oh man, I had to do some kind of dance involving umbrellas to Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head when I was 11. I think we performed it for some old folks at a nursing home or something. And Rhythm of the Rain! You have a lot of golden oldies stuff.
