The song is Raindrops are falling on my head. When I think back to that time I wonder why that song was so important to a young 12 year old. Then it came to me I had just changed school mid-year due to a new busing law. We were bused to mix up the different races, which just upset a bunch of people. There was a war going on and lots of tension in the world. All I wanted was happiness and that song told me it was possible because I am free.
Anytime I do feel tension or too much coming on me, I relax and play Raindrops are falling on my head. I sing it out loud The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me, It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me. When I remember that part my next song comes to mind. Singing in the Rain.
I can’t tell you how many times I have sang singing in the rain, in the rain. Yes, I am kind of goofy with singing and dancing in the rain. I just smile and love it…I don’t care about getting wet, I just have fun. I just wished I could dance like Gene Kelly.
You know the truth is the sun is still shining behind those clouds and the rain is wonderful for us to drink and feeds the plants. If your rain drops are issues in life, just relax some and a solution will come to you to help you reach happiness again.
Much joy and love to you and yours.
