Music Monday - "I Can't Stand the Rain" by Ann Peebles (1973)

Readers of my blog will know that I am a huge fan of classic soul music.  I can (and sometimes do) listen to it all day.  One of my favorite retro soul songs is "I Can't Stand the Rain" by Ann Peebles.  Ann Peebles is from Memphis, and she co-wrote this song with Don Bryant and Bernie Miller.  This song made the Top 40 in 1973, and - a little bit of trivia - it was one of John Lennon's favorite songs.   Tina Turner covered this song in the 1980's, and I like her cover ... but the original is just so great.
