RAIN, RAIN – GO THE HELL AWAY!

18 days in the DC area, 17 of them raining.  Its like living in London, without the Tower. Maybe Seattle, without the Space Needle.  Rather than wallow in it, I thought I would come up with my Top 5 “rain” songs.  Believe me when I tell you, I gave this a lot of thought.  Unable to narrow it down to only five, I have settled on a Top 7.  Let me know what you think – did I miss your favorites?

7.  RAIN DAYS, Tom Waits

6.  RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS, The Carpenters

5.  RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD, B.J. Thomas

4.  PURPLE RAIN, Prince

3.  HERE COMES THAT RAINY DAY FEELING AGAIN, The Fortunes

2.  WHO’LL STOP THE RAIN, Creedence Clearwater Revival

and my winner – a surprise, I know, but google this and listen – – –

1.  RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA, Brook Benton

HERE’S TO THE BAD MOM’S

On a day when everyone is posting pictures and loving thoughts about their mothers, I wanted to raise a glass to three of television’s, shall we say, unpleasant ones:

CERSEI LANNISTER, whose brother is her son’s father;

LIVIA SOPRANO, who tried to kill her son; and

GILLIAN DARMODY, who had sex with her son.

Cheers!
