Climatologists forecasted a 'Godzilla' El Niño this winter, but so far Southern California hasn't seen much rain, even compared to a normal year.

Those fancy rain boots and new umbrellas we purchased have been gathering cobwebs in our closets. But they could come in handy this weekend. Rain is expected across the region, and showers could continue through Monday.

In light of the weather, we surveyed users of Groundsource, a group of people who text us comments, pictures and news tips. This time around, we asked Angelenos to tell us their favorite rainy day song.

We got a great list of responses. The selections span genres and decades, featuring the work of everyone from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Raekwon the Chef. Enjoy this playlist below while jumping puddles or sipping soup.
