Midnight Gems - Your Free Mix-Tape Show - E 28 "Rainy Nights in Small cabins"
In Madrid, cars floated through the streets thanks to the rain and here a couple of hours down south the forecast starts out with 3 days of rain, going down to two, one, a couple of hours, and ending up with an hour of rain.
Human Tetris - Here Comes the Rain Again
I used to hate the rain, being Dutch I had a good reason for loving this next song.
Tina Turner - I Can't Stand the Rain
That song brings back memories, and this is probably one of my favorite rainy songs. This is just such a clouded classic! No I am not gonna play The Good Weather Girls, it´s not raining men tonight. Just want that rain down on me.
Do I hear in those first 15 seconds where Marlyn Manson found his inspiration for The Beautiful People????
Phil Collins - I Wish It Would Rain Down
Oh damn, I totally forgot about Amanda, you might know here from Beautiful Goodbye I loved that song and this next one is a good second.
Amanda Marshall - Let It Rain
Are you wet? Are you soaked already? Because I don´t think we are gonna get more rain tonight. It´s all water under the bridge, it´s yesterday's tears, yesterday´s rain.
Megan Page - Yesterday's Rain
OMG, that is so one of the best smells in the world. I hear some early Tori A and is that a cello? This is probably the hidden gem of this session if you ask me.
Alysia Trombla - Smell of Rain
Now Just Imagine yourself in a little cabin in the woods and it stops raining and you step outside. You walk into that enchanting forest.....
Courtney Jean - Cabin in the Woods
That just smells like such a fairytale! I miss my days living far away from people and stepping outside walking on the wet grass and being surrounded by mist. Giesss that was once upon a time for me.
Irelynn and Unmarked Roads - Your Once Upon a Time
Maybe I am just weird, melancholically longing back to a smell that will never be back. A Magical smell from that dark cloud, a smell that will never stroke my nostrils again once I take my place between the stars again
Yael Cremonesi - Starchild
Let´s make it rain stars, they don´t smell as good as raindrops but they are also not soaking your clothes when they hit you. And besides that, this is a lovely hint towards next week's playlist.
Lord Of The Lost - Raining Stars (Swan Songs II Version)
All these gems were added to this week´s YouTube playlist.
All Midnight Gems Playlist can be found here
The Spotify playlist might not capture the whole show but is meant to represent it as well as Spotify makes it possible:
Riddle Me This
More on him is on the way in my part 2 of the Book of Revelations posts.
What the fluff is Midnight Gems?
Somewhere lost in time, trying to escape out of the rabbit hole back into the rat race there is a vacuum..... that´s the place where midnight gems are found.
My Midnight Gems will try to uncover & recover those beautiful songs that nobody ever noticed or might have been forgotten.
Who the fluff am I?
Being a former DJ playing about everything and having an uncompleted study of radio journalism. I have been wanting to do this for years...Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.
Hope you enjoyed this well-known wave of fantastic music and that you still feel like joining me on the next Midnight Gems Session coming soon.
