Please Take This Time To Appreciate The 'It's Raining Men' Music Video

Name one thing cheesier than The Weather Girls' performance in the "It's Raining Men" music video. I'll wait.

Please Take This Time To Appreciate The 'It's Raining Men' Music Video

My a cappella group sang this song for our spring semester this year, and I have to admit that I hadn't seen the music video for it until after we all voted on singing it.

Boy, was I missing out.

Let's take this time to appreciate this artistic masterpiece, shall we?

So, the video takes place in a part of a "town" that looks like if Sesame Street had been built out of cardboard.

We are then taken up to one of the building's windows to see The Weather Girls (Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes), well, talking about the upcoming rainstorm. (Spoiler - it's not just any, normal rainstorm.)

Ah, finally, we are introduced to this concept of "raining men." And the men did rain, indeed.

This HAS to be my favorite part of the whole video. As The Weather Girls stare at the raining men out the window, they ~accidentally~ slip, break the window, and start falling down to the ground. As the camera catches the ~action~, you'll notice that pictured above is Martha Wash, but see-through. She. Wore. Green. In. Front. Of. A. Green. Screen. And the best part? The directors said, "It's ok. We'll keep it!" Iconic.

Aaaand here are all of the men - and now they're bigger than the buildings. Not sure when this happened. However, we mustn't think too deeply into that. What IS important is that they're listening in on in one of the building's rooms.

Oh look! It's "Mother Nature rearranging the sky so that each and every woman could find the perfect guy." Not sure how the sky and heavens all managed to fit into a single apartment building's room, but again, I suppose I won't ask questions.

Here, one of the Weather Girls waits in bed while she, "feels the stormy weather moving in." But wait - she's also seen on the TV reporting the weather. It sure is magic how she can be in two places at once!

Oh this part is GOOD. Martha Wash belts out the lyrics, "Hear the thunder. Don't you lose your head." And then...well, her head flies off with the most incredible special effects you ever did see.

This part comes up right after The Weather Girls belt, "rip off the roof and stay in bed." So, yeah, the men just kinda float on into their room and get in bed with them. Oh, and we can't forget their stylish fedoras. The only thing that would have made this scene better is if after they floated in through the roof, they tipped their hats and said, "m'lady."

So sad that our music video analysis is coming to an end. From this point on, The Weather Girls and the men have a dance party together in the streets.

Thank you for taking this wild ride with me. Next time stormy weather is upon us, I hope you think of this iconic music video!

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
