Rihanna – Umbrella – The Song To Change All Songs

Most people would ask why don’t songwriters write good song any more and up to 2007 I was asking the same thing. But out of the blue, without warning, like a bolt of lightning on a cloudless day came the song to change all that. The song was Umbrella sung by the unbelievably gorgeous Rihanna who comes from our not so friendly neighbor, Barbados. I know you might be saying a song that calls itself Umbrella cannot be taken seriously but you only have to listen to it once or, better yet, look at the uncluttered Yahoo and Pepsi video version.

When you think about it, an umbrella is a very romantic device, and like many other romantic devices, it comes in several colors and sizes. Both lovers, and bedfellows can huddle under an umbrella in the rain, or they can use it to sneak a kiss pretending no one is secretly photographing the moment on a cell phone for blog purposes. Umbrellas have also been featured in many romantic movie scenes which I can’t remember the names of right now.

If you remain skeptical about the song just Google umbrella. If you want the lyrics just click this link. If you are in the mood for steamy romance I strongly recommend you try the Step 2 Naturally Playful Umbrella.There is nothing more to say about Umbrella other than just continue singing these infectious lines:

(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

  1. “Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh…”


    And who says Bajans are unfriendly? Every Bajan man I’ve met has been exceedingly friendly to me. 🙂

  2. Bajan people are not unfriendly and I have known too many Bajans to even think that. It is the Bajan Government with their chronic Territorial Waters dispute with Trinidad and Tobago I was referring to 🙂

    Well, on the bright side, Bajan men don’t try to pick me up and for that I am grateful 🙂
