    Long ago, Cathy Drennan mentioned a song in her MIT Opencoureware on how she taught her then four-year-old daughter the colors of the rainbow employing a 'They might be giants' album. My curiosity shot up! Later ...later, while watching 'The Umbrella Academy' on Netflix, I heard the song "Istanbul" by the same musical group: TMBG. Gettu, we are in luck! Just now, I looked up if TMBG ever performed any rain song?

    Not any rain but they staged a 'pencil rain'.



    The possible dream
    Finale of seem
    The moment that some call eternal that some call insane
    Now helmets on each head awaiting the first lead
    The pageant is named the pencil rain
    The infantry stands
    And holds out its hands
    The marshal's binoculars focus and skyward they train
    They're searching the yonder blue
    They look out for number two
    The heraldry of the pencil rain​

    The song is open to interpretation on the imagery of that 'pencil rain', is that pencil a stand-in for authorization or artillery, as in pellet from the military artillery or from the bureaucratic dispatches.

    All forms of rains have graced this thread, so, now elevating it with incomprehensible rain.

    This thread is the regression hypnosis into childhood memories. That song ...that song from the movie "Voyage of the rock aliens" ...that song ...what is that song. I never spared any movie featuring an alien in any role.

    With the summer inching towards it's worst phase, we need something to cool our senses. This video has clips showing picturising moments making us appreciate the hard work of people behind the screen and we have something interesting to learn here. Enjoy!
