To continue with the monsoon them, I thought I’d feature a fun video tonight – “It’s Raining Men” by the Weather Girls. I’ve always been a fan of Martha Wash and this song is just catchy, upbeat and makes you wanna shake your tailfeather!

The song was written, originally, in 1979 for Dave Balfour, but was discarded. Other great artists, including Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Barbara Streisand and even Cher – were offered to record the song, but passed it up.

The Weather Girls recorded it in 1982 and it became an international hit. It peaked at #1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club charts and only #46 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Enjoy the monsoon and the vidoe!
