All was quiet one Monday evening. I had a few friends over and as the night progressed, it suddenly became urgent to listen It's Raining Men by The Weather Girls. The song busted out through the night, possibly interrupting the mild, calm evening of our neighbors, an annoyance probably not too thrilling for anyone who doesn't get their rocks off by dancing to empowering campy hits of the disco era.
The song is an ideal representation of a time: the early 80's, and a mood: the jubilant feminism of women who donned suits, went to work, and were not afraid to enjoy the company of men.?Penned by Paul Jabara and Paul Shaffer in 1979, it is also very, very gay.
Best line ever? “God bless Mother Nature, she's a single woman too!”
