RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME

Well, It's very ALARMING nowadays that here in the PHILIPPINES even though It's SUMMER TIME there are a lot of RAINS lately. The Bicol Region and even other parts of the provinces were even devasted with floods. Of course, MANILA would not be spared on these rains and floods. YUP!! It has been a month already and the climate here is very unpredictable in a way. Today could be HOT and Tomorrow would be RAINY!! Wheeew!! That's why a lot people are getting sick. Hmmmp!! That doesn't include the SWINE-FLU scare which is probably the recent world health threat. APRIL to early part of JUNE is usually the HOT WEATHER here in the PHILIPPINES but It's not anymore the case right now. I guess global warming is indeed taking the toll on our environment. PACMAN THUNDERSTORM is still very much around the country.

Of course my Blogpost Title is from one of my favorite songs from THE ALARM entitled "RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME". THE ALARM was first introduced here in MANILA by WXB102 back in 1986 by playing the XB classic and PINOY WAVERS favorite "ABSOLUTE REALITY". RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME was first played by NU107 back in 1988 and It is also one of the popular hits of the band here in MANILA. DZBM POWER105 made this song also a hit back on those days. RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME reached # 18 on the UK SINGLES CHART and #71 on the US BILLBOARD HOT100. I requested this song to DJ VALENTINE(former DJ RON SOUTH of LITEWAVE) on the current New Wave Program on 99.5RT entitled "NEW WAVE EXTRA" last April 25,2009 which he played. Of course, I also requested this song to buddy POGZ on NU107 New Wave Program "LISTEN ON: BALLAD OF THE TIMES" last April 29,2009. GEORGE FREDERICK, POGZ, CHARLIE, and MIKKI played it as the final song of that evening.

So since It's raining here in the Philippines this Summer I present you an ALARMING climate change in my country that depicts this great song...... RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME by THE ALARM.
