Bad weather

Gene Kelley was singing in the rain, Milli Vanilli blamed it on the rain, Leo Sayer had it raining in his heart, for Elvis it was all he needed, and  the Weather girls had it raining men, Prince's was purple and Peter Gabriel's red, the Seekers asked themselves what they had done to it and for Aaron Neville it felt like rain, whilst Duran Duran had to hold it back and where Rod Stewart lives they had ten days of downpour, which would have been great for Garbage and Eric Clapton , because they are only happy when it rains. So they ain't going to thank Nick Cave because according to him it ain't going to rain no more.
