Ann Peebles - I Can't Stand the Rain (Official Audio)

submitted by Huzzaz on 07/28/21 1

Happy Birthday Ann Peebles! Listen to title track from her 1973 album 'I Can't Stand The Rain' now. "This wonderful album, originally released in 1974 on the Memphis-based Hi Records label, deserved a wider audience than it ended up getting at the time. It played to Ann Peebles' great strength, her poised and sultry voice, and surrounded by the sparse, easy funkiness of the trademark Hi rhythm section and producer Willie Mitchell's perfect use of horns and strings, she sings like a resilient but disappointed angel on this impressive set of songs about the darker side of love. Her best song is here, the eccentric but brilliant "I Can't Stand the Rain," along with a marvelous version of Joe Simon's "(You Keep Me) Hangin' On," and perfect readings of a pair of Earl Randle songs, "If We Can't Trust Each Other" and "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down." Peebles sings her heart out, and with those somehow bright-sounding Hi grooves behind her, it all comes together to make a classic album of dark, bouncy, and beautiful Southern soul." - Steve Leggett/AMG Stream here: AnnPeebles.lnk.to/ICantStandTheRainID Lyrics: I can't stand the rain against my window Bringing back sweet memories I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window 'Cause he's not here with me Hey window pain do you remember How sweet it used to be When we were together Everything was so grand, yes it was Now that we've parted And there's one sound that I just can't stand I can't stand the rain against my window Bringing back sweet memories I can't stand the rain Alone with the pillow Where his head used to lay, yeah I know you've got some sweet memories But like a window you ain't got nothin' to say I can't stand the rain against my window Bringing back sweet memories, hey I can't stand the rain, ooh Against my window, oh-no-no 'Cause he's not here with me, uh Alone with the pillow, uh-uh Where his head used to lay, yeah I know you've got some sweet memories But like a window You ain't got nothin' to say, hey-hey Uh-uh (I can't, I can't, I can't, can't stand the rain) (I can't, I can't, I can't, can't stand the rain) (I can't, I can't, I can't, can't stand the rain) (I can't, I can't, I can't, can't stand the rain) (I can't, I can't, I can't, can't stand the rain) Get off my window now, get off my window Get off my window nah, I can't stand the rain I can't stand the rain, ooh, can't stand the rain, oh _____ www.fatpossum.com/ Follow Fat Possum on...
