I Think It’s Going To Rain Today  performed by  Dusty Springfield  (1968)
Composed by Randy Newman
Arranged by Peter Knight
From: UK
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile] on Sunday 27th October 2002

The lady may have left the stage, but her spirit lives on in her recordings, and this is among her finest!! Sadly unreleased in the US for 28 years, this gloriously somber song was included in the 1995 anthology box set. Dusty sings with a sadness in her voice as she vocally paints a picture of a dreary day. While the overcast sky fails to crush her spirit, it does provide an opportunity for introspection and reflection. She is accompanied only by piano and orchestral strings which give this song a beautifully sad sound that make it perfect for playing on a rainy day.

from the Dusty Springfield Anthology (Mercury/Polygram 553501), available on CD (Mercury/Polygram 553501)

Other Versions: Bette Midler recorded this song for the film 'Beaches' and the song appears on the soundtrack album
