Oh, I so wanted to find another song than the one I immediately thought of. I wanted a dark and meaningful Dylan song or maybe one about the Northwest. We do have that reputation up here for rain after all.
I even found what I thought might be a fun song that fit for today. It is Easter (whatever that means to you) so when I spotted the song Ocean Rain by Echo and the Bunnymen, I thought “How perfect!” But what a depressing song that turned out to be!
So I’m back at my original thought, the obvious one I was avoiding.
I grew up in San Diego and though the Beach Boys sang about us, they were not actually a part of us. Nope, instead, we had the one hit wonder, the Cascades. They lived and performed among us all over San Diego. (Were you there then, Mr. Fish???)
I remember this one dance I went to………..Well, anyway, here is their song.
Their history, if you are interested.
PS I actually did like this song but at the time, it just didn’t fit the deep and intellectual reputation I was trying to build for myself. Plus, I had already been on a blind date with the drummer of the Association!!! I was cool.

I think this song captures the essence of rainy days. Falling rain can be so peaceful. Thanks so much for sharing!
A good one to put on when you’re stuck in the house watching the rain fall outside.
How cool you’re from San Diego! I grew up in the 60s and 70s in Lemon Grove and went to Helix. I heard that song a lot but never knew they were a local band. Thanks for the memories!
I have so many posts about San Diego…mostly beach life. Didn’t get out your way much until I was a young adult and worked at one of the early Drug Treatment places, more like a “recovery commune” really. It was on the border of Leon Grove and Spring Valley I think. And Thank YOU for the memories too!
I really should proof-read before hitting post! That’s Lemon Grove.
I just had a flashback to the 60’s and I was born in 1972…………….
