[#2] From Stephe’s desk: My fantasy Rain playlist for the U.S. continued.

When I’m rolling in my Escalade Hyundai and listening to my very favorite songs of all time, these are the sounds from my playlist—whether he did an occasional cover or matched the vibe—that I think would have Rain lighting up our airwaves like a Christmas tree. (JiHoon, are you listening?)

What’s on your fantasy Rain playlist, dear fans? Why?

» Numbers 1 and 2 on my fantasy Rain playlist are HERE.

#3. Maxwell ~ Lifetime. (Credit: maxwellVEVO @YT)

This is for my aunt, who thought I was playing a Maxwell song until the Korean words started sinking in. (She screamed so loud, I thought she’d busted my eardrum.) Of course I had to get her ALL of Rain’s songs so she would leave me in peace.

#4. Guy/Aaron Hall ~ Goodbye Love. (Video:  94kingbrown@YT)

Rain leans into the mic as if his heart is breaking. “Baby… bye-bye, baby…” Everyone bum-rushes the stage.

#5. Guy/Aaron Hall ~ Piece Of My Love. (Video: kbarro07 @YT)

Rain: “You can’t have all of me… ’cause I’m not totally free…” Audience: “Wanna bet money?!” Bum-rush.

#6. Bee Gees ~ Love Me. (Video: karlospatriot @YT)

Put this in Rain’s vocal range and SWOOOOOOOON away. He’s so good at those “Please come back to me, girl” songs.

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding: “Because Of You” from his second album released in Japan, Eternal Rain (2006).

#7. Bee Gees ~ Spirits (Having Flown). (Video: Theflyinhawaiian2000 @YT)

Just put him on stage in his BEST Show funkadelic clothes with this one and he’ll be shaking that tambourine, working that hip, doing the Onion, skipping around and puttin’ stank on it in no time. The man loves to have fun up there. You know this. *coughBusanWomancough* 🙂

Proof. Pudding. “Busan (Seoul) Woman” from Rain’s The BEST Show Korea national tour (2011). Excellent fan cam, B4marie1…!

  1. listening to my iPod’s R & B genre and this song began to play one of my favorites—-I could see Rain wrapping himself around this song………..can’t you visualize Bi in white clothing moving so gracefully to the music?…….ABSOLUTELY! Afterwards, he can go directly into Escaping the Sun—because it has the same Sting (Shape of my Heart) sample as Emotional…………did you pick up on that Rainy Entertainment?…………LOL……..(also posted on the forum in “What song would you like to see Rain cover?”)


  2. Thread has been tweeted to JiHoon. Thanks for your valuable input, everybody. 🙂

  3. how did we miss this one? New Edition……..OMGoodness
    can’t you hear his voice?……..
    “Sunny days- everybody loves them.
    Tell me baby, can you stand the rain?
    Storms will come this we know for sure, Can you stand the rain?”


  4. This may be an unusual choice but I can so see Bi doing a sexy dance performance with a female dancer. The sexy way he likes to tease on stage. This song is during the time they tried to….”grow up” Tevin’s image. Welp! The boy could sing that’s for sure (IMO). Anyway, some songs I see Bi performing more than singing, this is one.


  5. #5(Bonus Track) “Jupiter Love” By Trey Songz


  6. Alright i missed the last one but now i gota jump in!
    I feel this song was made for Rain. Could you image him saying “Turn around, cuz that pretty round thing looks good to me?” HA! NO PROBLEM!

    Bobby V : Slow Down


  7. how about this one from Prince (Bonnie Raitt cover)
    Turn down the lights…..ooh wee………yessir


  8. Oooh. Again. Yes, yes, yes, and hell yes. Y’all “on it”!

    Stephe ^@@^


  9. #4 and my final one: Mint Conditions “So Fine” Remix


  10. #3 Meshell Ndegeocello’s version of Ready For The Worlds’s classic “Love You Down.”


    • Hey, Nicole speaking of Me’Shell NdegeOcello…..this one is hot! Damned funky…………..


  11. #2- Marsha Ambrosius “With You”. I’d like a duet between these two.


  12. #1- Dim the light By Dwele


  13. Yes. Yes. Yes. And hell yes.


    Stephe ^@@^


    • My sentiments EXACTLY….when listening to these songs (*wink, wink*)


  14. I’d love to hear his version of this song too……………..

    And for a the sweeter side of romance, I like this one………..


  15. This one too….. in his key of course…………..

    I picture all these sexy dance moves….”Lawd” Have MERCY!!!


  16. Ok, you started this……and EARLY in the morning too!

    I’ll be back just after I cool off from this one……..(SMILES)
