I honestly wasn’t thinking about rain when I wrote this. I wasn’t even thinking about April. And I was originally experimenting with it in a different key! So how this came to be April in the key of G flat is anyone’s guess. I had this motif in my head, and was surprised to find out that, as I worked on it, it never went anywhere. It just kept insisting on itself. That turned out to be okay by me. Stick with it – there’s a pretty nice payoff!
