With the rains making a reluctant entrance in the city, it’s time to bring out the tea leaves and old books. But it’s also time to plug in those earphones and lose yourself to the music. There is definitely extremely soothing about listening to good music on a rainy day. Imagine yourself sitting by the window listening to your favourite songs as the rain pours down and the wind softly hits your face. What a pretty picture that makes!

If you need something to pep you up on a gloomy morning, or if you just want to listen to a soft, soothing song, scroll on and add these to your playlist. From some old favourites to peppy new numbers, here’s our Rainy Day playlist.
