Post 466 : Music 39 - Crying in the rain (Everly Brothers)

I used to have the Everly Brothers (golden hits) album while I was growing up. The first song on that tape was "Crying in the Rain". The album was on a Indian label called Magnasound and it had cost me Rs. 35, maybe in 1991 (not too sure though).

Today, thanks to Max and his post... I recalled this song again. Downloaded it and was listening to it almost ad infinitum... I also like the A-ha version the same song, something I (again) grew up listening to (as well).

Very lovely song from 1961 (I think my memory still works....I  actually did a google later and was off bang on....phew!!).



Song Lyrics: "Crying In The Rain"
Recorded by: "Everly Brothers"
Written by: (Carole King and Howie Greenfield)
Single: Released December 1961,
B-Side - "I'm Not Angry"
Album: "The Golden Hits Of The Everly Brothers" - June 1962

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurtin' me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

Rain drops fallin' from heaven
Could never wash away my misery
But since we're not together
I look for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Some day when my cryin's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool but till then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

I'll do my cryin' in the rain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

A-ha was great. But the song was really made memorable by the Everly Brothers. And while I didn't grow up anytime in that era [hehehe], I still remember listening to this song at home. mom had these cassettes with her favorite songs recorded on them and we would listen to them once in a while.
Simply beautiful.
