Kiss The Rain: Your Soggy Summer Playlist

The phrase "it's only rain" should come with a caveat: unless it starts flooding an entire province or city. It's been a wet blanket of a summer for many Canadians to say the least, which means summer playlists need a change of tune. In case rocking out to "Surfin' Safari" seems but a cruel joke, we created a list of soaking-wet songs that will have you blaming, kissing and taking shelter from the rain. If you can't beat it, you might as well sing about it, right?
