“Recently I rediscovered Maxwell’s sweet soulful rendition of This Woman’s Work and the setting could’ve not been more perfect. It was a drizzly Saturday morning on the bed, while my wife is cooking breakfast for our family, definitely a moment where I knew I’m a very lucky man.”

“Barbra Streisand’s Evergreen must be my all-time favourite rainy day song — her incredible voice was probably at its peak then and the tune and lyrics certainly make your reminisce about life and your past loves. #emomuch”

Charmaine Ho, Executive Editor

“I have several rainy weather playlists but if I HAD to choose just one song right now, it’d be The Wolves & The Ravens by Rogue Valley. Or maybe Hozier’s Like Real People Do. No, wait, make that Cinematic Orchestra’s To Build a Home with Patrick Watson. Omg, so hard to choose!”

“Sabrina Claudio’s entire Confidentially Lost album, but in particular, Orion’s Belt. Moody and sensual with dulcet vocals singing achingly passionate lyrics, it’s the perfect track to walk in the rain to……provided you aren’t going anywhere that needs good hair, that is.”

Joyce Cheo, Senior Beauty Writer

“Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me, because it is so soothing and puts me in a very relaxed mood, totally ideal for curling up in bed with a good book.”

Hanan Haddad, Digital Writer

“Stormy days tend to dampen my mood quite a bit and give me a major dose of nostalgia. Which is why the only rain I love is the Korean singer Rain (my first huge K-pop obsession). Listening to ‘It’s Raining’ (such a classic!) keeps my mood from dipping because you simply CANNOT resist grooving to this rnb tune. “Rain, go rain, it’s raining, it’s raining~” 🙌 Not only does it give me throwback vibes to the early 2000s, with the leather vest and god-awful jeans, I can’t help but fall in love with the charming Jung Ji-hoon all over again.”

“The song “我怀念的” by local songbird Stefanie Sun is what I find myself humming on a rainy day. The title roughly translates to “What I miss…” and the song succinctly captures the feelings of a breakup.”

Annabelle Fernandez, Sub Editor

“I love it when it rains, and with its hypnotic beats, Dancing on My Own by Robyn is what I imagine myself, well, dancing in the rain to.The song also reminds me of one of my favourite scenes in Girls, which is a welcome bonus!”

Pakkee Tan, Senior Digital Writer

“Rainy days tend to get people most people down, but I say, why not have a good time instead? It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls always gives me a chuckle when it’s dreary outside.”
