It's been raining, off and on, all afternoon here, so I figured now is an appropriate time to continue my Favorite Songs about Rain series, an idea I've stolen, I mean borrowed, from @JohnRoberts, who did a great one awhile back. We're on #9, "In the Rain," by Keith Sweat. Keith Sweat came out of Harlem in the mid-80's to become one of the leaders of the then-burgeoning new jack swing movement. In 1987, Sweat hit big with his debut album, Make it Last Forever, which sold over three- million copies. While the album spawned multiple hits, "In the Rain" was not one of them, having not been released as a single. It's too bad, because I thought "In the Rain" was an album highlight, a sad ballad that is obviously one of my favorite rain songs. (Information verified by Wikipedia.)

@teamfreak16 Please send it to me. You live in a nice area. I used to live in Pueblo and loved to go to Manitou Springs.

@velvet53 - It's at the bottom of this post. I'm doing this on my phone, which, for some reason, won't send or respond to messages. I love living in Manitou, by the way.

That was a really good album. He's good. Even my girlfriend likes him, and all she listens to is modern country.

If you weren't listening to R&B in the 80's, you definitely might have missed him.
