A rainy day playlist.
By Soraya Keiser | News Reporter
With the passing days and rising temperatures, one thing has seemed almost always a constant. Yep, you guessed it, rain. When I walk to my first class, rain. When I get pad thai for lunch from the DC on Thursdays, rain. When I go to sleep at night, rain. I mean, even as I write this, it’s raining. The endless patter of rain can quickly become a source of angst and gloom, but it doesn’t have to! Just think of all the pretty flowers that will start to pop up soon. So grab a chai latte, find a good book and curl up listening to the sound of rain intermingled with these chill tunes.
- “July” by Noah Cyrus & Leon Bridges
The buttery combination of Noah Cyrus and Leon Bridges’ voices is one of the most calming things I have ever heard.
- “Arms” by The Paper Kites
This song is about holding someone in your arms, and if that doesn’t cheer you up on a dreary day, I don’t know what will.
- “Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves
Did anyone see a rainbow this past week? There was definitely a possibility for many.
- “When the Night is Over” by Lord Huron
I think I have a Lord Huron song for every occasion. This is the one for rainy days.
- “Steamroller” by Phoebe Bridgers
Phoebe Bridgers has the raw voice and striking guitar chords to cut through any raincloud.
- “lovely” by Billie Eilish & Khalid
This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. I mean, just listen to that cello and piano!
- “Heartbeats” by José González
Honestly, almost all of José González’s music fits the chill rainy day vibe.
- “Cherry Wine – Live” by Hozier
Hozier’s voice could put me to sleep, and I mean that in the best way possible. He is so soothing.
- “The Wisp Sings” by Winter Aid
This song feels like it should be part of a movie soundtrack. I dare you to pretend you’re in a movie when you listen to it.
- “Motherland” by Natalie Merchant
A cozy little lullaby.
- “If I Go, I’m Goin” by Gregory Alan Isakov
Perfect for your wandering rainy day adventures.
- “Jealous” by Labrinth
Labrinth makes me sad in this song, but it is so beautiful.
