1771 Eddie Rabbitt - I Love a Rainy Night
From: Horizon; Year: 1980; Genre: Country/Rock
For the last couple of days we had some wonderful thunderstorms rumbling across the area. The other night we had an especially feisty one roll through; as I watched it whilst standing in front of the open window this apropos song kept running through my mind. It was quite a nice soundtrack to go along with the claps of thunder that shook the house.
Anyway, this was one of Eddie Rabbitt's most popular songs and was part of the Country/Rock crossovers that permeated the late '70s and early '80s. His Horizon album will always have a special place for me; I grew up hearing it quite a bit, well, at least the first 3 songs; those were the ones that got a lot of play in particular.
