“Rain” is a song by The Cult from their Love album. It was briefly known as “Sad Rain” during its recording, and the lyrics were reportedly inspired by a Hopi rain dance. Ultimately it was the second single released from that album following She Sells Sanctuary. It peaked at #17 on the UK singles chart, and has always been a live favourite, being performed at almost every gig since its release.
Despite the songs popularity, after performing it live in November 1989 at Wembley, singer Ian Astbury said “So you like that one?“ and after the audience cheered, Astbury responded by saying “Personally, I don’t”. This can be heard on bootleg live audio and video recordings of the concert.
There is one alternate version to the song, a remix titled “(Here Comes The) Rain”.... Read on...
