Something Sexy About the Rain — This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is Something Sexy About the Rain by Kenny Chesney. This song was released in 2005 on the Be As You Are (Songs from an Old Blue Chair) album. This album was a side project for Chesney. It had no released singles. It focused on his island experiences and had a “tropical” feel that was very different from his more classic country work.

I really liked a number of the songs and they became part of several playlists for me. This album came out when I had started dating again after my first marriage ended. One of those relationships lasted about a year. She helped me understand that I was not broken and that I could love, trust, and be happy again. I think the songwriters of Something Sexy About the Rain express how I feel about her and the time we had together better than I ever could.

There’s somethin’ sexy ’bout the rain

She said as it came pourin’ down

It feels like kisses on my skin

She spread her arms and spun around

In a summer island storm

In a field of sugarcane

She taught me how and showed me why

There’s somethin’ sexy ’bout the rain

And sometimes it rained all night

And everything she did was perfect

Every way we were was right

We loved like there was no tomorrow

Then suddenly, tomorrow came

And it was raining at the airport

And kept on raining on the plane

She only loved me for a season

But my heart won’t ever be the same

Even now, her love’s the reason

There’s somethin’ sexy ’bout the rain

Chesney never did a video of this song, so I included the official audio track. I also included a user video from a live concert in Dallas that he did in the rain. Hope you enjoy this Friday’s song, Something Sexy About the Rain.
