    While ‘It’s Raining Men’ was released in the autumn of 1982 by the American music duo The Weather Girls as the lead single for their third studio album, the lyrics describe excitement and enjoyment of many types of men; In contrast, “Bodies” released in 2001 by American rock band Drowning Pool, an ode to the intensity of mosh pits,also enjoyed a good amount of commercial success. Somehow, both songs seem to commemorate the iconic moment in 1998, when The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 ft through an announcer’s table.

    And another one gone, and another one gone, and another one bites the dust

        That’s hilarious, so many songs about bodies free falling from the sky and hitting the floor, like rain.

        I… I feel so alive
        For the very first time
        And I think I can fly

          I’m back at my cliff, still throwing things off I listen to the sounds they make on their way down I follow with my eyes 'til they crash

    Last time I heard Bodies I was in a CVS parking lot and a pickup truck pulled in blaring it. I nearly lost it when I saw a 40 something dad wearing khakis get out of the truck. Then I realized I was a 40 something dad wearing cargo pants and quietly went back to my car to have a midlife crisis.

    Bodies hitting the floor could be from any height. Raining implies a great height.

      Even if it isn’t as long as we’re just doing reincarnations we’re cool. Like the avatar.

    I certainly wouldn’t be saying, “hallelujah,” if it were raining men. And cleaning up the aftermath would just be horrible. So many corpses…

    Imagine if the songs The KKK Took My Baby Away and Fire of Unknown Origin (took my baby away) are talking about one really unfortunate baby that keeps on being taken away by random stuff.
