Only Happy When It Rains

Last week, I shared some photos and video clips from my recent show at the Hop Haus Brewing Co.

I also shared with you that I was excited to do 5 new covers! 🙂

One of the songs that I covered was Garbage’s “Only Happy When it Rains.”

Lyrics:

I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains
You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad?
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are goin’ wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains
I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains
You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care
I’m only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I’m riding high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me
Pour some misery down on me

Although this song is from 1996, I had actually only heard this song for the first time recently! 😮 Earlier this year, I wrote about how the film Captain Marvel included a FANTASTIC selection of songs.

One of those songs was “Only Happy When It Rains.” When I heard that song in the film, I thought What is that awesome sassy song? I was so surprised to learn that it has been around for some time!

I had so much fun learning this song for my show. It’s got such great lyrics and has a lot of attitude! 😉

I was extremely surprised to learn that Garbage started out in my city, Madison, Wisconsin! 😮 How cool is that!?

Check out these articles about them in the Isthmus, Madison’s weekly newspaper.

What is your favorite Garbage song?
