These compiled “top 20 Bedweather songs” are mostly break-up songs because we tend to feel melancholic when it’s raining – somehow, reminiscing our past with a gloomy feeling of sorrow and brokenness. With these music playing on the background, we lay down on our bed, tightly embrace ourselves and our pillow, vividly remembering our past – our lost soul, our shattered core! But at the hindsight, there’s a feeling of sigh and relief, reminding ourselves that those are part of our past and won’t gonna hurt us, anymore. Coz if it still hurts, then, we haven’t moved on. We haven’t moved forward.
But thanks to the rain and the bed-weather feels of these songs. They make us feel more human!
