We took your suggestions for songs about the rain, hoping that they'd bring rain... and we played them on the radio.

In case you haven't heard, it's really cold back East and in the Midwest, like it often is during winter.

NPR's All Things Considered recently did a segment about songs to help warm people up during the cold winter days. A cabin fever playlist of sorts. But it's certainly not cold here on the West Coast. In fact it's too hot and too dry for the middle of January. Put simply, we could use a little rain.

So, we have our own version of a weather playlist here on Take Two, but instead of cabin fever, we need a rain dance. And it's all based on your suggestions. Check out the playlist and the segment that was on the air.

Thanks for your contributions. I think I can feel that rain comin'.
