Atlanta Hawks: Beta Band’s “Dry the Rain”


When I was depressed, Beta Band’s “Dry the Rain” was the perfect song. Thanks to the movie High Fidelity, a few Americans got to know the weary vocals of Steve Mason (still putting out music), and the shuffling beats of the Beta Band.

The Hawks have to be depressed about the way the Eastern Conference Finals have gone. They need to be taken in and dried off. The season was too great to end like this. They could have won Game 1. They could have won Game 3. Everyone is injured. Everyone has to feel deflated. They need to listen to “Dry the Rain” on repeat all day today.

This is the definition of my life
Lying in bed in the sunlight
Choking on the vitamin tablet
The doctor gave in the hope of saving me
In the hope of saving me


Walked in the corner of the room
A junk yard fool with eyes of gloom
I asked him time again
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain the rain
The rain the rain the rain now

Dusty brown boots in the corner
By the ironing board
Spray on dust is the greatest thing
Sure is the greatest thing
Since the last since the last

Walked in the corner of the room
A junk yard fool with eyes of gloom
I asked him time again
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain the rain
The rain the rain the rain now

I asked him time again
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
Take me in and dry the rain
The rain the rain the rain now

If there’s something inside that you want to say
Say it out loud it’ll be okay
I will be your light
I will be your light
I will be your light
I will be your light

If there’s something inside that you want to say
Say it out loud it’ll be okay
I will be your light
I will be your light
I will be your light
I will be your light

I Need Love, yeah
I Need Love
