Break out your umbrella-ella-ella and stream this crowdsourced playlist for a rainy day.  (Album art for the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men")

Maybe you're the type who just "can’t stand the rain" like Ann Peebles. Or perhaps you don’t mind letting yourself "get absolutely soaking wet" like the Weather Girls. But one thing's for sure: the best antidote for the wet-weather melancholy of a gray-skied day is to bundle up and stream some beloved storm-inspired songs.

On Twitter, we asked readers to help us make a rainy day playlist, and you did not disappoint. You sent us electrifying instrumentals like "This Rainy Decade," a supercharged synth track from the Cleaners From Venus, and the thunderous "Riders on the Storm," infused with Jim Morrison's raspy, whispered vocals.

Whether you prefer the cunning cacophony of local Kronos Quartet's "The Water Rises," or the sumptuous Motown sway of the Dramatics' "In The Rain," there's a track in there that's bound to keep your seasonal blues at bay.

So let it pour, let it flood and let’s get totally carried away by this crowdsourced playlist for a rainy day.
