Listen to Didi Benami's unreleased single "Sweet Rain"

Didi’s unreleased songs created for demo in 2008: “My Way Up (Single) and Sweet Rain (Single).


This unreleased song of Didi suddenly popped out in the internet and on YouTube and we couldn’t wait to grab hold of the song as well.

Uncovered on Rocco Guarino’s website are two unreleased songs that Didi and Rocco created and submitted for demo in 2008: “My Way Up (Single) and Sweet Rain (Single). The two songs were written by Didi and Rocco is listed as co-writer, producer, engineer and mixer.

On the website it says that:

Rocco Guarino is a songwriter, record producer, photographer, and director based in Los Angeles, CA. He has worked with artists such as rock supergroup Velvet Revolver, Top 12 American Idol contestants Didi Benami and Amanda Overmyer, legendary songwriter Diane Warren, Weezer bassist Scott Shriner, Slash, Scott Weiland, and many others.

Digging deeper, we found this sweet entry on Didi’s blog on MySpace talking about the song “Sweet Rain” and wishing her dad a happy birthday!

Today, November 26th, 2008 is a very cool day.

The weather has been very strange here lately. As in the other night when it was so foggy. I was driving down 3rd street and it looked eerie. Odd.

Anyway, today is the birthday of not only my father (Happy Birthday, Dad!!!) but it is also the birthday of my song Sweet Rain.

What has been even cooler is that it was raining the evening we wrote Sweet Rain, last year, which inspired the song, and here we are again, it has been raining all last night into today. 🙂 Cool.

It is also the year anniversary or meeting my friends Rocco and Panhead. They are here via Wichita.Both of them lived there for a bit and I met them a few weeks before I was traveling there for a short break from LA. Wichita is one of my favorite places for many reasons. The people there are great.

…Wow it is pouring outside… I love it. It’s just so nice here after it rains. It’s clear and washed. It’s like a fresh start. Beautiful.

Cheers to a cleaner Los Angeles and Happy Birthday Dad!

Didi

We really loved this single and are surprised no record label wanted a hand on it! It’s a catchy song that we picture could be an anthem song… She should include this on her album!


Lyrics: (BIG thanks Didi Fan27 who sent us the complete and correct lyrics! Thank you!)

SWEET RAIN

When everything is weighing me down
And my world is turning inside out
There’s a place that I can go for peace
To find a better part of me

Chills on my body I can feel it sinking in
It’s a crazy little race that I just can’t win
Everything is always better on the other side of town
Gonna weave through the wind with the top pulled down

CHORUS:
I can feel it on my skin
There’s a sweet rain rolling in
And like the sun, shines brighter from within I feel it kickin’ in

When felicity is on my side
There’s a magic in my soul that turns the tide
I got a taste but now the well’s run dry
So I’m changing the wheels on this rusty ride

Chills on my body I can feel it sinking in
It’s a crazy little race that I just can’t win
Everything is always better on the other side of town
Gonna weave through the wind with the top pulled down

I can feel it on my skin
There’s a sweet rain rolling in
And like the sun, shines brighter from within I feel it kickin’ in

Gotta get to the bottom, fight for the feeling inside
While the world keeps rolling by Find the light that hides behind my eyes

I can feel it on my skin
There’s a sweet rain rolling in
And like the sun, shines brighter from within I feel it kickin’ in
