I just ran in a deluge, so my thoughts today are on rain, and the first song that comes to mind with that is, of course, Rain by Madonna. What I’ve always liked about this song, other than its somewhat haunting melody, is, unlike many gloomy rain songs, its allusion to rain as something wonderful, cleansing and a harbinger of hope. “Your love’s coming down like rain…” So perfect. And did I mention that I love what the director, Mark Romanek, does with the video, including making it appear like awesome composer, Ryuchi Sakamoto, is directing it?
