Winter has officially arrived in Egypt, and rainy days in Cairo can be hectic – streets get flooded (because of our lack of a proper drainage system) and there are traffic jams everywhere. Literally everywhere.

However, just like there’s Christmas spirit, we also believe in such a thing as rain spirit over at Prime, and we tend to unleash that spirit every time the sky cries – probably because it doesn’t happen that often. I think we can all relate to playing a sad song while driving in the rain and pretending we’re in a dramatic scene out of a movie, or jumping around in the cold rain until our clothes get soaking wet and we eventually get sick.

Well, we’ve come up with a special rainy-day playlist of 10 songs that capture those melancholically joyful moments perfectly.

1- James Bay – Need the Sun to Break

2- Hozier – Work Song

3- Florence and The Machine – Over the Love

4- Bon Iver – Skinny Love

5- Ryan Adams – Wasted Years (Iron Maiden Cover)

6- George Ezra – Listen to the Man

7- James Bay – Let it Go

9- James Morrison – Please Don’t Stop the Rain

10- Ed Sheeran – Photograph
