World's Worst iPod: I Love a Rainy Night by Eddie Rabbitt
by World's Worst iPod,posted Apr 8 2013 6:12AM
This song by Eddie Rabbitt actually replaced Dolly Parton's song 9 to 5 as number 1 on the charts. No big surprise that both songs are on the World's Worst iPod.
According to music historian Fred Bronson, "I Love a Rainy Night" was 12 years in the making. Rabbitt had a collection of old tapes he kept in the basement of his home. While rummaging through the tapes one day in 1980, he heard a fragment of a song he had recorded one rainy night in the late 1960s.
"It brought back the memory of sitting in a small apartment, staring out the window at one o'clock in the morning, watching the rain come down," wrote Bronson in The Billboard Book of Number One Hits. "He sang into his tape recorder, 'I love a rainy night, I love a rainy night.'" Now you'll be singing it all afternoon.
