I Love a Rainy Night - Eddie Rabbit

Legbamel Not-Pop

As often happens, my attempts to find a song thematically related to a holiday were sidetracked, if not completely derailed, by a song I had completely forgotten. Thus, in my search for a song about bunnies or candy that wasn't too cute or too kinky, Eddie Rabbit started singing I Love a Rainy Night. There's nothing really outstanding about the track, except that it's a solid, sing-along sort of tune and I really do love a good rain storm (at least, I do when it doesn't threaten to back the river up into my basement). Enjoy a little Eddie “Easter” Rabbit on this fluffy bunny of a day, and consider that 1981 wasn't really all that long ago, to those of use who remember it.

    good pick - eddie rabbit didn't have too many but this one is good. Now I'm wondering how he came upon "eddie rabbit" - must be a story there.

    I'll have to do some research on that. I don't know whether Eddie Rabbit was a stage name or not. I'll post here when I find an answer. Thanks for asking!

    As far as I can tell, Eddie Rabbitt was born Edward Thomas Rabbitt, to parents who had emigrated from Ireland to the US. I'm glad he didn't choose Rabbitt as a stage name, because that would be a very strange move. Case closed!
