"It Might As Well Rain Until September" is a 1962 song originally written for Bobby Vee by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. King recorded the demo version of the song, which would become her first release as a singer. Bobby Vee recorded the song the same year for his album Bobby Vee Meets the Crickets.

Background

The song was written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and intended for Bobby Vee, for whom they had already written the song "Take Good Care of My Baby", which was a number one hit in the United States in 1961 and remains Vees biggest hit on the Billboard Hot 100. King recorded the demo version of the song[1] and this version was released as a double A-side single with "Nobody's Perfect". It was Carole King's first commercial release as a singer having already had a number of hits as a songwriter. As the demo version was not intended to receive a commercial release, the master recording of this song does not exist. This is also the reason why all digital releases of this recording are in rather poor quality compared to other songs of this time[2].

The song later appeared on the soundtrack album for the 1979 film More American Graffiti[3], which peaked at number nine on the album charts in New Zealand[4]. It is also included on Carole Kings 2005 live album The Living Room Tour, where it is performed as part of a medley along with other songs she wrote with Gerry Goffin[5].

Song information

"It Might as Well Rain Until September" is a mid tempo pop song in s similar style as many songs written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin at this time. Through the lyrics, the singer tells a former lover that the world does not appear beautiful to him or her no matter the circumstances as he/she cannot be with him/her: It doesn't matter whether skies are grey or blue/It's raining in my heart 'cause I can't be with you/ [...] /So it might as well rain until September[6].

Charts

The single was released in 1962 but did not become a hit before 1963. It is still Carole Kings highest peaking song in the United Kingdom reaching number three in the single charts.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
