Battle of the Bands - Mandolin Rain
Mandolin Rain is a song I've loved since I first heard it in the 80's. It's sweet and it's sad. Two individuals are in love with each other, and they share a love of the rain and strolling in it. But when one leaves, the rain is a constant reminder of the others departure.
♪ Listen to the mandolin rain
Listen to the music on the lake
Ah, listen to my heart break every time she runs away
Oh, listen to the banjo wind
A sad song drifting low
Listen to the tears roll
Down my face as she turns to go ♫
I think we have all had a lost love where that 'one thing' is a constant reminder of them.
Even years later.
The two musical contenders for this Battle of the Bands are found below.
Please listen to both and let me know which you like best.
Those are the two contenders. Ignoring the actual videos, who do you think performs the song best? I collected the two bands to battle it out, now it's your job to vote on your favourite. Please list your preferred song choice in the comments. Additionally, let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 8th when I'll cast my own vote and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Do you prefer rain or snow in Winter?
Do you prefer a soft and gentle rain, or a raging lightening storm best?
Do you have that "one thing" that is a constant reminder?
