Kurt Browning Needed This

... a Rain Room on ice.

If you haven't seen Kurt Browning's rendition of Singing in the Rain ... you should. Click here.

Amazing, yes? Props to whoever built that set too. Although it is tough to choose his best work, to me this is one of them.

Now imagine if it had the Rain Room that's currently installed at the MoMA in New York City. He would have stayed dry. Much better on the skates. They really shouldn't get too wet or that leather breaks down.

How does one stay dry? The Rain Room is "a 300 ft² room is rigged to create a constant downpour, but motion-detecting cameras stop the rain anywhere a person is present. The effect is one of being cloaked in dryness, which follows you wherever you go."

There are a lot of other Rain songs that one could do - some iconic songs would be: I Wish it Would Rain Down on Me, by Phil Collins, Rain by Madonna, Purple Rain by Prince, Here Comes the Rain Again by the Eurythmics and Fire and Rain by James Taylor.

Hey, that's half an ice show right there! What other Rain songs would you like to see skated to?
