Oh my wow – fun with YouTube

The most brilliant thing just happened. I needed some background noise to help me concentrate while reading for class tomorrow, and I went to YouTube for some thunder/rain noise. I found this.

Then I read through some of the comments, and somebody recommended listening to one of my favorite composers, Arvo Pärt, at the same time.

Some music just sounds brilliant with rain and thunder in the background.

I think my life is forever changed.

Don’t believe me? If you want the same experience I just had, scrub through the rain video above to about 10:30, and the start playing the video below. Please let me know if you spontaneously burst into joy/elation/tears/whatevs. Amazing.

I’ll report back with other great music/rain combinations. Now I have to get back to that reading…


Another great choice: Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude.” (Um. Duh.)

One thought on “Oh my wow – fun with YouTube”

  1. I’ve always loved the Raindrop Prelude…it’s my favorite Chopin piece and one of the first “hard pieces” that I learned to play when I took piano lessons. Brilliant combination here – I like it, too!!!
