#MusicMonday – The street’s the place to go…

Music Monday

 

It’s Monday…it’s 4pm so it’s time for #MusicMonday!!! It’s my opportunity to share with you a track of my liking in conjunction with the sarcastic Drew Weldon of the Tattooed Book Geek Blog.

As Storm Dennis rages over the UK, I thought I’d take a little inspiration. Today’s choice is a classic and always played at cheesy nights out in the classy nightclubs of Lancaster, Morecambe and Leeds….and I was reminded of it recently following a rather entertaining discussion about Bridget Jones’ Diary with a colleague at work….Enjoy….

It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls

Hi, hi we’re your weather girls
Ah-huh
And have we got news for you
You better listen
Get ready, all you lonely girls
And leave those umbrellas at home
Alright

Humidity is rising (uh rising), barometer’s getting low (oh low, girl)
According to all sources (what sources now)
The street’s the place to go (we better hurry up)
‘Cause tonight for the first time (first time)
Just about half-past ten (half past ten)
For the first time in history
It’s gonna start raining men (start raining men)

It’s raining men, hallelujah, it’s raining men, amen
I’m gonna go out to run and let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet
It’s raining men, hallelujah
It’s raining men, every specimen
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

God bless mother nature, she’s a single woman too
She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel she rearranged the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
Oh, it’s raining men, yeah

Humanity’s rising (humanity’s rising)
Barometer’s getting low (it’s getting low, low, low, low)
According to all sources (according to all sources)
The street’s the place to go
‘Cause tonight for the first time
Just about half past ten
For the first time in history
It’s gonna start raining man (start raining men)

It’s raining men, hallelujah
It’s raining men, amen
It’s raining men, hallelujah
It’s raining men, amen
It’s raining men, hallelujah
It’s raining men, amen
It’s raining men, hallelujah
Oh oh oh oh
It’s raining men
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean
Hallelujah it’s raining men
