Tape Deck Tuesday Playlist: Waitin’ on the Weather to Change


It seems like the gloominess in Madison will not come to an end. From fog distorting my view of the capitol every morning, to the still-slick sidewalks and plethora of puddles, this persistent precipitation is postponing the swellness of spring. It has even started to snow again! Alliteration aside, I have seriously been ready for summer for way too long.  Consider this playlist a type of reality check about where we really are on the seasonal calendar, (it’s technically still winter for another week and a half) with some light peeking out at the end of the storm for good weather hopefuls like myself.

“Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” by B.J. Thomas

“Little April Showers” by Chorus from the Bambi soundtrack

“Raining Blood” by Slayer – I understand the playlist just took quite the turn here, but sometimes the rain can be frustrating.

“Rain King” by Counting Crows

“Rain is a Good Thing” by Luke Bryan

“Rain” by Creed

“Rainmaker” by Iron Maiden

“Make it Rain” by Fat Joe feat. Lil Wayne

“Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” by Creedence Clearwater Revival – Shoutout to my high school football team and the memories of singing along to this gem in the locker room post-win. Good times.

“Natural Disaster” by Zac Brown Band


“Sunshine” by Matisyahu – Just found this one browsing YouTube. Pretty solid.

“Sunshine” by Aerosmith

“Surf Wax America” by Weezer – A great summer jam coming off of probably one of my favorite 90s albums, The Blue Album.

“Summer Love” by Justin Timberlake – As Tori raved in our Monday feature, JT is one of the most talented entertainers of our generation. His next album, The 20/20 Experience, is nothing short of long-awaited, and I’m sure that many fans are listening to FutueSex/LoveSounds in anticipation.

Think there were some rain songs that should have made the list? Post your opinions in the comments! Debate is always encouraged. As are the clouds to dissipate.
