~Rainy Days in Chicago~

Winter is coming, and the rain got me in the mood to compose this new tune. Went acoustic this time, with piano and a smooth sax solo. The volume control will only affect the music - rain and thunder don't usually come with a volume control. ;p Some of you might remember my AS3 rain that I am reusing here for this piece.

Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

Love the sound of the rain and the music is just so Chicago... :) It's more jazz, but you get it... Very nice.

The rain behind the music makes for the best atmosphere XD
And the occasional thunder is really soothing. Like sitting inside during a storm ^^ Very safe.

...Unless the house is struck by lightening and catches fire, in which case you'd better get out of there O_O

...I forget where I was going with this.

Great music, awesome idea. Love it.

I lived in the Arizona desert for 12 years, so the sound of water (which we never see) is always soothing. LOL

I don't know how you do that XD

I guess it goes to show you shouldn't take rain for granted XD
I'll never get angry at the rain again

I become a peaceful Zombie after a few loops of this song. It helps that I can listen to it for several minutes and not get sick of it. :meow:
