Dan Fogelberg – “Rhythm of the Rain” – (1990)

The late, great Dan Fogelberg had a big hit in 1990 with his partial-cover of The Cascades’ 1962 song “Rhythm of the Rain.” I say “partial-cover” because he took their song and blended it in part with the Beatles’ song “Rain” to make a really, really good Adult Contemporary hit. It was a #3 song on that chart, and the last charting single of Fogelberg’s career. The vocals and the medley on this track are a near-perfect blend. It really is amazing and a song I’ve always loved. This is also the final song for our “1990s songs that sound like they’re from the 1980s” list.
