Rainy Day Song Medley


Do certain things ever make you think of songs?

They sure do for Beth and me.

The idea for this rainy day medley began while we were back at school. It had been raining on and off for weeks and one particular Sunday morning it was pouring. 
After the morning church service, we scampered through the puddles and failed to dodge raindrops while heading to the dinning hall, where our Sunday school class was held. The Everly Brothers' song "Crying in the Rain." had been stuck in my head ever since the rain had began. I even doodled a raincloud on my bulitin and wrote the song lyrics in with the raindrops. :)  
While we waited for Sunday school to start, we began to talk. There are so many oldies songs about the rain, wouldn't it be fun to do a medley? Right there we started humming, and we tried to see if the Cascades' "Rhythm of the Rain." would fit with "Crying in the Rain." We didn't get too far before the Sunday school teacher came, but we saved the idea for when we had the time.
Turns out, the next time we came to it, was a rainy day back at home. Beth found the guitar chords to both songs, and they were in the same key. We slowed the tempo of "Crying in the Rain" so the two songs would flow together. Beth arranged the lyrics so each song would take a turn, and started the medley with the guitar riff from "Rhythm of the Rain." We sang it a few times, seeing how best to blend the two songs, and then I really wanted to try if we could sing a verse from each song at the same time. It took some trial and error, but then it worked! 


I ran outside with my camera, tripod, and umbrella to film a backround for the video while it was still raining and then we recorded the medley.

We had a lot of fun putting this together, and we hope you enjoy!
