7/28 The Rainbow Sign - Is there anything new to say about a rainbow? The task and trick for songwriters is to reinvent what we all know without casting it off. The thing about rainbows is that they show up everywhere. There are a lot more songs about rainbows that there are actual rainbows. And they show up in every kind of song from a lullaby to heavy metal. The show starts with a folk song and a cowboy song, just to make the point.
Fun Fact: Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.
