Kelly Lang and her song for Barry Gibb the one standing in the rain

The final song from her album Obsession to hit our list and earn a nomination for the Spirit Awards is “Last One Standing In The Rain.”  When you first listen to this song, you may think that it is a song about a bad break-up or the loss of a loved one.  However, Kelly assures us that it is a song about her friend Barry Gibb and being the last of the Bee Gees left standing on stage.
