Rainy Day Songs

As a kid, I remember riding in the back seat of the car when it was raining. We were usually driving from Mud Lake to Idaho Falls. Nobody would be talking. I would get heavy-eyed leaning against the window; mesmerized by the gray distance, the whoosh of tires turning on wet pavement and the songs on the radio playing in the background of my empty thoughts.

Here's a list of my rainy day songs. I chose them not because I remember hearing them on such trips, but because every time I hear them they make me think of those times. I have a Grooveshark playlist so you can give a listen.
