Sharing is Caring: On Water Falling From The Sky

I remember when I was interviewing for colleges, I think it was with the Harvard guy who asked me about a book I said I was writing at the time, or more specifically a scene I had that took place in a downpour. He asked me what was I using the rain to signify, I at the time was using it mostly cinematically but he spoke to the use of rain as a clearing or washing away motif.

Of course I had forgotten about that until like twenty minutes ago. I was just planning on posting this to honor the first "significant" rain that So Cal has apparently gotten in months and how I had forgotten how much I like the smell of the air right before it storms. And on that note here are some songs about god and the angels spitting on the earth, or as it is more commonly called, raining.
