Roxette – Queen of Rain
From the album “Tourism” (1992, EMI)
The easiest way out of this competition. Is there a word count minimum? I don’t know.
When I heard this song on a mixed CD in 1992, I was caught off guard. Roxette was not for the cool kids. But I was 9 and I was not one of the cool kids anyway. Years later, I heard the song and I cried. Something in the lyrics just got to me. And years later, Queen of Rain is still one of those songs that always touch me and make me stop whatever I am doing.
It was raining tonight, for the first time on months. I went outside, barefoot, wearing trousers and a tee shirt and I let the rain soak my face. I took a deep breath, and was reminded of this song. I am a Queen of Rain too. ❤
