Rainy Days and Mondays, Senandung Melow Khas Carpenters

Rainy Days and Mondays ditulis oleh Paul Williams bersama Roger Nichols. Pada masa itu Williams bisa dikatakan sebagai aktor gagal. Ia sempat mengikuti casting untuk film The Chase. Namun akhirnya tak muncul dalam film yang dibintangi Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, dan Robert Duvall tersebut. Ia pun banting stir dengan menulis lagu. Tak banyak lagu yang dihasilkan, tapi setidaknya dia menciptakan dua hits untuk The Carpenters yakni Rainy Days and Mondays dan We've Only Just Begun.


Rainy Days and Mondays rilis tahun 1971. Awalnya lagu ini diperuntukkan bagi The 5th Dimension, namun grup tersebut menolak. Lewat lagu ini The Carpenters nongkrong di posisi 2 Billboard Hot 100. Lagu ini juga mendapatkan sertifikat Gold dari asosiasi industri rekaman Amerika Serikat, RIAA.

Beberapa penyanyi menyanyikan kembali lagu ini. Bahkan AC/DC dengan gaya mereka. Tentunya kita nikmati saja versi aslinya.

Rainy Days And Mondays


Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothin' ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothin' to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny, but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me (the one who loves me)

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothin' to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems that it's the only thing to do (only thing to do)
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around

Nothin' to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down
Hangin' around (hangin' around)
Nothin' to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays always get
Me down
