Marmalade - I See the Rain (1967)

Today’s band is another great psychedelic garage band from the 60s. Coming out of Scotland, and originally going by the name of The Gaylords, they decided to change their name in 1967, along with their image.

Opening for Pink Floyd, The Who, Joe Cocker, and Traffic, these guys must have had a lot of exposure. This song, which Jimi Hendrix called "the best cut of 1967," has a wonderful chorus. And guess who helped contribute to the sessions when making this song? Once again, it was Graham Nash.

I hope you like it:

Lyrics:

Beautiful day I'd like to lie on the green lawn
The ducks are congregating ‘round and ‘round the lily pond
And the cows have all gone
Running home to put their coats on
Stay indoors while it pours ‘til tomorrow

I see the rain again
I must complain again
Why does the rain let me down?
Will you try and make it sunny in the morning?

Five to ten, now it's time for the weather
The sun will shine and in its time get better
But it won't last for long
Clouds are spreading over London town
Stay indoors while it pours ‘til tomorrow

I see the rain again
I'll take the blame again
I see the rain lets you down
But I'm gonna make it sunny in the morning

Stay indoors while it pours ‘til tomorrow
I see the rain again
I’ll take the blame again
I see the rain lets you down
But I’m gonna make it sunny in the morning
