Here Comes the Rain Again is a song by British pop 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." The running time for "Here Comes the Rain Again" is in actuality about five minutes long and was edited on the Touch album (fading out at approximately four-and-a-half minutes). Although it was edited even further for its single and video release, many U.S. radio stations played the full-length version of it. The entire five-minute version did not appear on any Eurythmics album until the US edition of Greatest Hits in 1991. Music video The music video, featuring Lennox and Stewart, opens showing The Old man of Hoy on the Island of Hoy in the Orkney Islands, with Lennox walking along the rocky shore and cliff top and later entering a derelict cottage in a nightgown, holding a lantern. In many scenes the two are filmed separately, then superimposed into the same frame. The result is that the viewer may perceive one as being a ghost in the world of the other.

Sampling George Nozuka sings the same note when he says "Talk to me" with a slight stutter in his hit single Talk To Me. Another hit by Nozuka, Last Night, features a riff that is inspired by Sweet Dreams. The lyric "Talk To Me" was sampled in Alice Deejay's 2000 hit song Better off Alone. The lyrics "Walk with me, like lovers do/Talk to me, like lovers do" were used in Platinum Weird's song Taking Chances which incidentally, was co-written by Stewart. "Taking Chances" was later covered by Celine Dion and released as the title track of her 2007 album. References in other media Madonna layered elements of her own Rain with "Here Comes the Rain Again" for a video interlude in her 2008 Sticky and Sweet Tour.


Eurythmics were a new wave duo from the United Kingdom, currently disbanded but known to reunite from time to time. Consisting of musician/producer David A. Stewart (often referred to as Dave Stewart) and singer-songwriter Annie Lennox, they formed in 1980 after the breakup of their former band The Tourists. Best known for their 1982 single "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" and album of the same name, they had a striking visual image, with Lennox having a very androgynous persona. Show more ...

Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

{Refrain}
So baby talk to me
Like lovers do
Walk with me
Like lovers do
Talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oooooh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

{Refrain}

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(Here is comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

{Repeat last verse to fade}
