    Default Rain (Jose Feliciano)



    One of my favorite "rain" songs is this one by Jose Feliciano in 1969. I decided to leave out the "old man is snoring" part and just feature the main melody. Hope you like this short rendition.

    Beautifully done, John. I remember hearing that for the first time when I was a junior in high school and had just discovered Jose's "10 to 23" album!

    Thanks, Luke! I opened up the sliding glass door to let in the sound of the rain. I was hoping for stronger rain for a more dramatic effect, but I guess you take what Mother Nature gives you!

    Thanks, Brenda! I can't explain the rain in other areas, but it's the rainy season in Japan. I cut out the part where Jose sings that nursery rhyme "it's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring." It's a clever addition but to me sort of breaks the romantic intensity of the song. So anyway, my rendition is super short! :P

    Thanks, Bill! I kinda think Jose Feliciano has been underappreciated over the years. His guitar technique and virtuosity is amazing, and he has one of the most recognizable voices in pop music. I think he should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Thanks, Dave! By the way, my son showed me how to transfer video from my camera to my computer using the smart card and a converter, so I'm able to make videos again. And I feel like I finally have a handle on the school semester, so I have a little more time to think about and work on videos. Thanks for your encouragement!

    You're so right, John! If there's one word that's bound to break romantic intensity, it would be "snoring" !!

    That song was meant for you to sing it.

    Beautiful.
