Lucie Elisa & Juliette

3 jeunes filles provide our sounds for today.

Lucie, Juliette, and Elisa are three rising YouTube stars from France that are known for their original and unique way of covering modern pop songs.

They hail from Seine Saint Denis, northeast of Paris.
They describe themselves thus:
 Nous sommes toutes les trois des amies d’enfance et partageons la même passion pour la musique. Du conservatoire à la Maison de Radio France, notre parcours nous a permis d’acquérir de solides bases classiques, et notre fort intérêt pour la World Music nous a amené à explorer des genres éclectiques. Depuis 2012, nous donnons des concerts dans des cafés parisiens et en Ile-de-France. En septembre 2013, nous avons remporté le concours ChroraleTryo et avons été invitées à jouer avec Tryo sur la grande scène du Festival des Nuits de Champagne ! Nous avons par la suite créé notre page Facebook qui cumule aujourd’hui plus de 10 000 likes.
And they have amazing voices.
If you are not moved to smile with this great piece of music, check your pulse.

Takes me back to wonderful summers on the shore.

Three beautiful voices in perfect harmony.  

Tous Les Mêmes

Riders on the Storm

 19 and Moog, NPR

It was a day of non-stop rain for most of the Bay area yesterday.
And we had more overnight, and this morning.
Pasco County, where I live, has seen the worst of it, particularly in Holiday where reports of over 8 inches of rain had fallen in 12 hours yesterday.
I believe the count is now up to 10 inches plus.

So to cheer me up, at least, and hopefully anyone else in the path of the storm here's some topical songs.

This one has been on my mind for the last few days.
This is a live version from earlier this year.  
Thunder Rolls - Garth Brooks

 19 and 54 NPR

The question on the mind of everyone in the bay area today.  

Who'll Stop the Rain by CCR

 Texan having fun in Florida, NPR

Just because its a great song, something to cheer us up in the rain.

Here Comes the Rain Again - Eurythmics

Time to get indoors, St Pete

Can't have a storm post without this classic from the 1943 film of the same name, the great Lena Horne delivers a sizzling performance of her signature song.  

Stormy Weather

 Moog NPR

The divine Ms M expresses our thoughts as we get up each morning.
A great version from her recent tour @ Staples Center, Los Angeles CA on May 28 2015.

I think It's Gonna Rain Today - Bette Midler

 Seven Springs Area, NPR

Gotta end with the ultimate all time greatest storm song. No debate.  

Riders on the Storm - The Doors
