RAINDROPS & HANDCLAPS



It's been grey and rainy here in Los Angeles for the past couple days - and admittedly, I couldn't be happier about it. If I can't make it back to New England to see the seasons change from Summer to Fall, I'm glad Mother Nature is at least throwing me a bone in the form of rain. And there's nothing like going to sleep with the sound of rain and waking up the next morning to the same.

To celebrate, I thought I'd share with y'all a fantastic FREE mash-up single I stumbled across, which is entirely appropriate for the current weather system here in SoCal:


Rihanna vs. General Public
"Tender Umbrella"

Mixed and mashed by Party Ben - easily one of the best in his biz - it takes most of the elements of one of my favorite 80s songs of all time ("Tenderness" by General Public) and combines it with Rihanna's staple "Umbrella". Sure, the latter is a bit dated now...but if you haven't had it blasted at you from all directions for at least a year, it can be nice to revisit it. This is especially true of this version, which takes both songs involved to a superfun, catchy new level.

I hope you find as much enjoyment in this track as I did. If so, check out all of Party Ben's other mash-ups, which are all free and pretty brilliant. And in the meantime...keep the rain coming!
