rainy days revisited

The lyric “I’ve been grasping at rainbows, hanging on till the end, but the rain is so real lord, and the rainbows pretend” by Savatage, can perfectly describe my feelings this summer in several ways. First of all literally, since the weather is awful. It is even worse than last year. At least June and July 2008 have been hot and summery! This year’s July has been miserable and wet, and it seems that August will be similar. Secondly metaphorically, since all my hopes that fieldwork would be carried out smoothly are going down the drain. Both my interviewees and supervisors ignore me. If I open my mailbox one more time and see no e-mails I will eat my feet.

Enjoy some songs (for all tastes) about “rain”, or about “summer and rain”:

Rainy days revisited – The Hellacopters

And it rained all night – Thom York

Έρχεται βροχή, έρχεται μπόρα – Διονύσης Σαββόπουλος

Summer’s rain – Savatage

I hear the rain – Violent Femmes

Rain King – Sonic Youth

Colossal rains – Paradise Lost

Naked in the rain – Dio

Let the napalm Rain – Dismember

Let it rain – The Adolescents
