Best 'Rain' Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

This song is the musical equivalent of a rainy day, with Jackie's ethereal vocals permeating the story. - BobG

Just phenomenal. Be sure to listen to it on a sound system with a subwoofer. You're missing half of the music if you don't. The low frequencies accompanying Jackie's ethereal vocals create a visceral sense of foreboding - the songwriter's intention to be sure.

You will never, ever find a better rendition of this song. This definitely belongs to Jackie.

Jackies way of singing makes any song a hit!
