3AM Eternal: The Jesus and Mary Chain “Happy When It Rains” (1987)

I have a friend who is happiest when it rains; bummed when the skies are blue, thrilled with the sound of thunder. As for me, this was the first Jesus and Mary Chain song I ever heard, thanks to watching 120 Minutes and seeing the video above, and it’s a good’n; though not the garage-cum-beach boys feedback laden speed-fest of their early records, this song–and its album Darklands–were slower, darker, and much more melodic than their fun, noisy records.

But I’ll take any JaMC over no JaMC….
