The Alarm - Rain In The Summertime
Why I shunned The Alarm I'll never know. They were a band that I blew off on one crap song I heard back a million years ago, then never bothered to listen to anything else. What have I done with my life? I have since given myself the 20 lashes, and done my hail whoevers', and I feel much better now.. really. I must say, I've become quite addicted to these blokes of late, and this track in particular has gotten quite a bit of attention. I figured the only fair thing to do was shove a bit of it down your throats, just in case you had not given them the time of day. This is one brilliant track, and not sure why I always missed it over the years. It could go in my top 100 tracks, but I've not forgiven myself that much yet. I guess we'll have to see won't we? You might see a bit more of their material poking up here, don't be surprised, I still feel a tad guilty you see.
