Mood Music Mondays - Bat For Lashes....

I'm blaming the rain for my music choice today.  It was a long weekend full of blankety gray skies and drizzle.  Still, there's nothing quite like taking a drive in the rain, pulling to the side of a lonely rode, turning off the engine, leaning the driver's seat all the way back, closing your eyes and just listening to the pelting raindrops all around you.

It's almost surreal.  And probably why this song seemed appropriate for my mood at the time.  Words like "ethereal" and "atmospheric" sprung to mind as I listened.  And the only way to listen to this song, in my humble opinion, is loud - eyes closed, body loose, and just let it move you.

It's Bat For Lashes' "Daniel":

Love it or hate it - it's just got something.  :)  And that's what I have for you today.  Happy Monday and have a great day of writing out there!

I need to turn on some good music and hope that the words will climb right on in. I do love when it rains, it gives me that feeling of a fresh, clean stale. Something to work with and mold.

If only it would rain this evening... do you think the rain gods can hear me?

Happy Monday!

I love finding a song that makes you drop everything and listen to it! Thanks for sharing this one.

Love the song. The video's just too weird. Like the ending, though.

I LOVE listening to the rain while taking a nap. It's all cloudy and dreary, and quiet in the house with only the sound of the rain pattering on the roof. I know what you mean with the car too- there's something soothing about it. Although I hate driving in the rain, so it's probably a possibility that I'll find myself on the side of the road while it's raining.

I think: Raindrops keep falling on my head....

Northern Utah, I understand, has gotten enough snow for water to last for years. But there's a paucity of the stuff--water that is--in Virginia. So when rain fell A LOT yesterday, I was elated, and thankful.

Happy Monday to you too!!

I love listening to the rain on the windows and roof as I fall asleep at night. Thunderstorms are even better. Happy Monday.

She's good. Though, I think I'd crack up if a guy in a black outfit started moleseting me while I was singing. :O)

Hi, Donea! It's my first time here and I'm glad that I dropped by. LOVED the song - it's the perfect soundtrack for the rainy day we're having on this side of the planet right now. :-)
