Here Comes The Rain Again (4:58)

Here Comes The Rain Again is a song by duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart. The song was released as the third single in the UK from the album Touch and in the United States as the first single. It became Eurythmics’ second Top 10 U.S. hit, peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100. “Here Comes the Rain Again” hit number eight in the UK singles chart, becoming their fifth consecutive Top 10 single in that country.

The track is similar in musical style to past Eurythmics singles and its melancholy lyrics draw a comparison between the painful and tragic feelings of unrequited love with falling rain. Notably, the group adorned the recording with the composition and arrangement skills of Michael Kamen, resulting in more natural feel to the overall finished product (versus the heavily synthetic aesthetic of the Sweet Dreams album and its singles).

During Eurythmics reunion “Peacetour” they performed an in-studio concert for the A&E Network in the U.S. Dave Stewart revealed that the lyrics to the song came into being after an argument between himself and Lennox while they were doing some songwriting in New York City’s Columbus Hotel. The basic melody had already been written and Lennox looked out the window after their fight and noticed it was starting to rain. She announced, “Here comes the rain again.”
