Released: 1993

Clouds move in
From off the horizon
Feels like nighttime
In the middle of the day
And I don't know why
But it's still so suprisin'
How a love grows stronger
Or it just fades away

But you look older today
Than I've ever seen you
I think I know the reason
We might wash all our tears away
But you got to bundle up baby
For the rainy season

I hear you breathing heavy
On the telephone tonight
I can feel the air is thick as thieves
Sometimes I just want to tell you
We'll be all right
At least that's what some part of me believes

But you look older today
Than I've ever seen you
Think I know the reason
We might wash all our tears away
But you got to bundle up, bundle up, bundle up
For the rainy season

Oh, oh I've been holding on so long
Holding on and holding on so long
Oh, oh I've been holding on so long
Won't you bundle up baby
Could you bundle up, bundle up, bundle up
For the rainy season

{#Devil_pimp}zesty ! the slide guitar and horns very reminiscent to Lowell George and little feat  groove on chilluns

High Quality!  sweet joy that livens my day
Walking in the rainy season in Memphis.

How about the Howard Devoto song by this title? - it kills!

 
I'll second that - no Devoto, no Magazine no joy.

Wow, I remember this, it's Seattle's theme song, yet, Seattle people cut through rain like a warm knife through butter.
Even in a down-pour, Seattle folks look like they are walking through a light mist...

Maybe these rain-theme songs will be the juju we need for some rain here in NorCal. We need it, badly.
 
Such a nice set Bill has going here
I love how Bonnie Raitt is able to appear on a track like this and not upstage the main artist.  That's a true pro.
Snow is here
I love the rain-related song set - it's absolutely pouring here right now.

Ha! When I first glanced at this, it looked like you wrote "Wanking in Memphis", and I couldn't agree more. This is much better. A very professional musician with peerless production and wonderful backing. Manufactured and packaged soul, but sometimes a fast food burger really hits the spot.

This is pretty high praise in a land walked by Giants.



Thanks RP for turning me on to this (and many other) song(s).

Yeah. Agreed.

It's nice to hear Marc Cohn carry on past his early promise.

Oooo Bill, how about some Little Feat....please.   I like this little ditty.

Even if that is true, that doesn't mean it is very good.

I can't past the cheesy pop production. I have a soft spot in my heart for Marc Cohn - I bought his first album and this one too. But it is hard to listen to this song now without wincing a bit.

Sounding almost like Leon Russell - and what do you know - Leon Russell (It's a Hard Rain Gonna Fall) is next in line.   Bill - how do you do that - its just brilliant.{#Whistle}
Sounds like she's playin' a little slide too. Sounding good it's got that Little Feat feel.

I'm pretty sure that Bonnie Raitt is singing background in both songs. Coincidence?

 


I really wish it was raining.

Wow, I was just logging on here to say that!

Rather nice. Laid back. diggin' it. :yes:
I wouldn't say "puke," but it's sorta ho-hummy bluesy. The music is good, but I think that the vocals are a little melodramatic. :yawn:

Guess I shoulda backscrolled! :high-five:
I would recognize Bonnie Raitt's slide guitar anywhere.
EXACTLY. This song is entirely deserving of its luscious production. 90s bluesy pop was never done better. MM13 wrote:
No use discussing taste with someone whose eloquence in songcomments doesn't go any further than "puke" or "awsome".
Ugh! reminds me of Rod Stewart.
I agree with "puke"!

What's wrong with your ears? Sounds nothing like Bolton to me.Bolton never sounded this relaxed and funky.
The only thing more depressing than the rainy season is this song. C'mon. Barf.
sounds like michael bolton puke
Good to hear something from him besides Walking in Memphis.

Just upped the average rating to a 7. This guy is best known for Walking in Memphis, but has made a few great albums, like this one.
I really, really dont like the "Walking in Memphis" tune, but this one is GREAT... I need to hear more!
"Feels like rain" and "The Rainy season".....perfect songs to go with a rainy day! :umbrella:

Nice voice and a great set of rainy songs for this rainy day here in Florida.
A big part of my formative years and beyond. Timeless.
Sweet, sexy voice. I like!
What a sweet voice
Mmmm... I was just thinking about this guy. Thank you, thank you.

Affirmative....AMG No personnel, but a very Feats-ish feel to this one...nice.
Wow, what a nice track to pull out of mothballs! Fantastic production. All around good tune.
Marc Cohn has got to be one of the greatest artists I\'ve ever listened to. It\'s a shame I hadn\'t heard him before a year ago. Check out Ellis Island, my personal favorite song of his.
Fun song!
