Two-fer Tuesday Featuring Two Rainy Day Women

All this rain so naturally some rain-related tunes come to mind. 

First up is a song by Irma Thomas titled appropriately "It's Raining."  Somehow this song managed to land on a Spin list as the 4th greatest single of all time:

It's a nice tune no doubt, but the 4th greatest of all time?  I don't think so.  In fact, it wouldn't even rank in my Top 5 Best Rainy Day Songs.  I got November Rain, Rhythm of the Falling Rain, Have You Ever Seen the Rain and Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head as my 5 thu 2 favorites.    
My No. 1 favorite rainy day song is from the band Garbage featuring dynamic lead singer Shirley Manson.  In 1995 they released this great rainy day song  Only Happy When it Rains.  The way Shirley spits out the song's lyrics though, leaves me wondering if she's as really happy as she say she is.
