RAINY DAY SONGS
My hardcore punk rock pals will think I'm going soft, but it's a gray day and it looks like rain and these are rainy day songs. Coincidentally, they're both from 1971. Maybe I was prone to melancholia back then--adolescence can be a bitch--or maybe there was something in the tea I was drinking--but either way, they moved me back then and I think they still sound pretty good. How about you? You're a little older now and maybe a little colder, but if you're not reaching for a glass of whiskey or a kleenex by the end of these two ballads you're a cold-hearted bastard and there's no hope for you, so sod off.
