20 Songs dedicated to umbrellas and why we love them!
August 21, 2015
Did you know that February 10th is designated as National Umbrella Day? Now, we know we’re some way off of February again, but while thinking about umbrellas, as we do so often, we got to thinking about all the songs that have referred to one of the world’s greatest inventions. There are so many songs that relate to the use of umbrellas, or have the use of the word in a dedicated title, so we thought, why not list twenty of our all-time favourites for you to see?
It's quite some feat to know just how much umbrellas have played a role in popular culture through the decades, isn’t it?
Take a look and see how many you’ve heard of, like, or had forgotten about and want to listen to again!
