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!
