Music Monday: Walk in the Rain


It’s Music Monday time. Each and every Monday without fail, except when I fail, I post a piece of music in the hopes we can share in its musicness. I shouldn’t write these so early in the morning.

Today’s song is Walk in the Rain, one of the especially beautiful songs from Michael Franks’ 1999 album Dragonfly Summer. You can peruse its Wikipedia page if you so wish, I wrote it!

Play A Walk In The Rain

I mention it today because I realised I’ve misheard one of the lyrics for two decades. Wow, is that how long it’s been since 1999? I had always thought he was singing with our umbrellas, but an inspection of the liner notes reveals it’s without umbrellas.

It’s just like when I got my first monitor headphones, and I heard instruments in some of his music I’d never heard before.
