Can You Sing In the Rain???

Hello, there,

It's been raining. It rained last night, and today it's cooler than the day before yesterday. However, the problem in Osaka climate is not just the rain; it's more humidity. A writer born in the north of Osaka, where the Yodo-river runs from north-east to south-west, described the humidity as clinging to our skin. And I do understand what that description means.

Born and bread in Osaka-city, I got my first regular job in Chiba prefecture, one that is next to Tokyo. I got a culture shock; if you go abroad, you take it for granted whatever you see, you eat, you meet may be different. But in a small country like Japan, I was so ignorant. The weather was quite different. The weather in Chiba had four seasons, while I may say we practically have two seasons in Osaka prefecture, especially in the central city.

The clothes we wore in Chiba was different. If you live in Osaka, you only need two kind of clothes; those for the summer, those for the winter. If it's a little bit too hot, you can take off your jackets. If it's too cold, put them on, and that's it.

The rainy season in Osaka is very short, like two weeks or so. However, as the old saying has it, it not rains but it pours on some days.

There are some nursery-rhyme-songs which express joy of rain, and some minor songs which feels sad. Indeed, I used feel very sad when I heard a particular song whose lyrics describes a child who has no umbrella, nor a rain coat and cannot go out. It was like he or she felt as if they have no way of spending the day as they wanted. They have to be happy with what they have to be happy with.

May rain stop soon.

I'm singing in the rain This person is singing because he's in LOVE, mind you (lol).

Iwasaki Hiromi and others sing Rain Songs (This movie contains both sad and happy songs on the rain.)
