Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Lean/Sit/Stand.

~~~~~~~~~~

As the third single from their fifth studio album, Heartbreak, New Edition’s Can You Stand the Rain? was released in December of 1988.

Written and produced by R&B dynamic duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Can You Stand the Rain is about a relationship presently going well, but the man is asking the woman if he can count on her to remain by his side, in case things should ever become stormy.

FUN FACT:

  • Despite Can You Stand The Rain? failing to reach the Hot 100 top forty, peaking instead at number 44, it became New Edition’s fourth single to top Billboard’s R&B singles chart. 
  • Can You Stand the Rain?  was sampled by New Edition themselves for their 1996 song, Home Again.
  • Can You Stand the Rain?  was covered by Boyz II Men for their 1997 album, Evolution.

Enjoy!
