It's Raining Today (4:00)

Cover of Scott 3

From Scott 3 and 17 other releases

It’s Raining Today is the first track on Scott Walkers third album Scott 3.

About the track Walker commented: “A lot to do with my teenage years. We are all flower/hippy now. My teenage days were in the beatnik era. I was involved in progressive jazz and writers like Jack Kerouac. Hitch-hiking over America.
Meeting a lot of people with whom I had ephemeral relationships. A song about meeting people, knowing them about a week, falling in love - and moving on. A very beautiful logical state of mind. Breaking relationships is always a very traumatic experience, It wasn’t then.”

    a lot of artists are influenced by Scott Walker, not just Radiohead. I know Ian McCulloch (Echo and the Bunnymen) is a fan

    "Radiohead used the same approach towards strings on How To Disappear Completely" redundant, walker's pretty much an obvious influence on radiohead... .................................................. Most definitely. They have nicked much more than just that from Walker. [2]
