Metaphorically Speaking....

  Heard an old song on the radio, today, by Johnny Rivers called Summer Rain which came out in 1967.  A song I have always liked.  Listening to it made me think; how many metaphors can one pack into a song?  I counted nine in this one.  Quite a few, considering it is less then four minutes long.  Can you think of a song that has more?
These made me chuckle
  Anyway, it is a great song, and I thought we were way overdue for one.  So here it is.  Also, I thought the psychedelic-like video collage was quite good.  Psychedelic, now there is a word you don't hear much anymore!

Metaphors are much more tenacious than facts. - Paul de Man
