a rainy season song

I had the blues once. Okay, maybe I still do sometimes.

But not the kind of blues the song, I Can’t Make You Love Me, tells about (& hoping I won’t feel anymore!). Obviously, it is a break-up song —every lyric, every note and every key summarizes the pain. It is about a romantic story gone awry, with one of the parties falling out of love.

And the pain comes in many versions, if I may add.

Since rainy days remind me of this song more frequent than usual, allow me to indulge on this track and share it with you. Below are my top three favorite renditions of the song. Each has a different take (on the song); yet, notice how each singer expresses their own personal pain through it.

Gets me everytime.

Listen:

3rd. Bon Iver:

2nd. George Michael:

AND the 1st place goes to…

Bonnie Raitt. No less than. Her version is a classic, an all-time favorite.

Yes. She had the pain that started it all.
