Oran "Juice" Jones - The Rain

I can’t remember how I initially stumbled on this song – but it happened it a couple years ago when I was at corporate grind job #1, and my life wasn’t the same for the next few weeks. Friends and I would joke and quote it constantly, I’d use the lines on my wife, it was great. The 80’s beat, falsetto voice, and the “and him” lines made it a go-to song, and the spoken word that starts around the 2:20 mark make it a classic. That being said, once I saw the video, it was OFFICIALLY GAME OVER. The video perfectly captures the song, and they go hand-in-hand like music video’s rarely do. Anyway, I was doing some yard work the other day and listening to the local 80’s radio station, and when this song came on, words can’t express how stoked I got. If you have never seen this video (or heard the song) – please, do yourself a favor and check out the video (posted after the jump). Shout out to Oran “Juice” Jones, a forgotten legend.
