I’m only happy when it rains

happywhenitrains Im only happy when it rains

Few days ago, I discovered I’m only happy when it rains (video-link) by Garbage from 1995. I later found out it was their breakthrough in music business. The song is about the love for sadness and passionate negativity. You can find the text here and a (not so great) German translation here.

I really like the song, because it’s like the exact opposite of walking on sunshine. Like the saying, when you tell someone about problematic or complicated situations, where you don’t know how to act: “Would be boring if it was easy.”, which is pretty true and mostly meant to cheer up. Complexity is a great thing, as long as you can find a little space for yourself and recharge from time to time.

As you can see, I had to play around with the topic graphically a bit and I’m quite satisfied with composition of text and how the colours turned out.
