Autumn in Seattle: A Post in Song Lyrics

by elswhere "Do I Ever Have an Original Thought in my Frickin HEAD?" Lastname, who adapted/swiped the idea from the lovely and talented jilbur.

The color of the sky, as far as I can see, is cold gray. Lift my head from the pillow and just fall again. With a shiver in my bones just thinking, about the weather. The summer turns to winter overnight. The leaves fall so suddenly, the sun sets at four o'clock, exactly what I'm dreading. Here comes the rain again, raining in my head like a tragedy. Can't stand the rain.

In a shameless bid for comments, I've left unidentified the artists and titles associated with the four lyrics plagiarized quoted above. If you can identify even one, I'll... I'll... thank you. And link to you! And recommend a book to you! And if you can identify all four, I'll write a special post for you and tell all my friends how great you are. Don't have any cool stuff to send, a la Kate. Drat. Going to sit under a sun lamp now.

"With a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather"
10,000 Maniacs "Like the Weather"

"Here comes the rain again, raining in my head like a tragedy, tearing me apart like a new emotion..."
The Eurythmics "Here Comes the Rain Again"

"Can't stand the rain" ... could be from a number of songs, but the one that popped immediately into my head is Tina Turner "I Can't Stand the Rain"

*shrugs*
That's all for me. Thanks for the temporary diversion. Must get busy enjoying our own rainy weather today. :)

"The summer turns to winter overnight. The leaves fall so suddenly, the sun sets at four o'clock, exactly what I'm dreading."

That comes from Robyn Hitchcock's masterful "I Often Dream of Trains." Hey elswhere, do you know that song independently, or did I give that to you on a mixtape once?

And yes, I'm only posting as "anonymous" because I refuse to be coerced into signing up for anything. If I need a handle, you can call me... DBTE (Da Bro to Elswhere).
