Amid California's driest year on record, Governor Jerry Brown has declared a drought emergency in the state. The lack of rain has put the state's ranchers under pressure, forcing them to buy the hay which they would normally grow themselves to feed their animals. ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images

In case you haven't heard, it's really cold back East and in the Midwest, like it often is during winter.

NPR's All Things Considered recently did a segment about songs to help warm people up during the cold winter days. A cabin fever playlist of sorts. But it's certainly not cold here on the West Coast. In fact it's too hot and too dry for the middle of January. Put simply, we could use a little rain.

So, we have our own version of a weather playlist here on Take Two, but instead of cabin fever, we need a rain dance. And it's all based on your suggestions. Check out the playlist and the segment that was on the air.

Thanks for your contributions. I think I can feel that rain comin'.
