15 Best Songs: To listen to in the rain

After last week I assumed that we would get a break from the crappy weather, but it seems the weatherman predicts otherwise. I’m not sure about you, but I hate the rain. Gray skies, slushy shoes, and infinite tiredness; it’s a college student’s worse nightmare. There are few times that I actually enjoy the rain, but these songs help me keep in mind those few times. They help me feel okay when I get doused with a sudden shower on my way to class. For some reason, listening to songs about rain or songs that remind me of raindrops, I am more congruent towards this nasty weather.
