Biography

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

This is yet another amazing song by Madonna. The music is very relaxing and the words are very meaningful. Every time Madonna releases a new record she suprises us all by doing something dofferent and at the time this was released it had the same effect. A must for all Madonna fans.

As Amazon has failed to provide a full track listing for this item and does not allow users to amend such details I assume the following to be correct, taken from my personal copy of this CD single...

1 Rain [remix edit] 4:17
2 Open Your Heart 4:12
3 Up Down Suite [dub] 12:14

The remix edit of the title track Rain is shorter and differs slightly to the full length album version original.

EXCELLEN, BUT INNECESARY 15 July 2000
By Gabriel González - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This UK maxi single "Rain" by Madonna contains: Rain (Radio Remix) (Same version of the american maxi single); Up down Suite (Dub) (Not a great song, believe me) and "Open your heart" (album Version). This UK edition was available in 12" Picture Disc, but there's no more than a different cover.

up down suit ("original version"!!!!) 15 Mar 2002
By george luna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this single has the "up side down" remix or dub, what ever it is. but if you're looking for the original version, you can find it at the "just say roe" album, the original title of the song is "good bye to innocence", you can purchase this rare cd here at amazon, but if you don't believe me you can listen to the samples!it is awsome!, hurry if you are a huge fan , you got to have it!...

In Madonna's Sexually-Charged Dark Age Was This Beauty 10 July 2003
By Busy Body - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rain was the fifth and final single to be taken from Madonna's Erotica album. Released in July 1003, the song peaked at No.7 in the UK and spent a total of eight weeks on the chart. The song closed the lid on a number of fairly unsuccessful releases from the Erotica album, and didn't bode well for the future of Madonna's career.

Rain begins with a wonderful settling tune and what sounds like the pattering of rain on a tin roof before Madonna sings "I feel it. It's coming," before the song drops and Madonna sings the fabulous first chorus, "Rain. Feel it on my fingertips. Hear it on the window pane. Your love's coming down like rain. Wash away my sorrow, take away my pain, you're love's coming down like rain." The first verse then starts where Madonna sings, "When your lips are burning mine and you take the time to tell me how you feel. When you listen to my words, and I know you've heard. I know it's real. Rain is what the thunder brings. For the first time I can hear my heart sing. Call me a fool but I know I'm not. I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top 'til I feel your..." She then sings the chorus, before moving onto the second verse, "When you looked into my eyes and you said goodbye, could you see my tears? When I turned the other way, did you hear me say I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky. You promised me when you said goodbye, that you'd return when the storm was done. And now I'll wait for the light, I'll wait for the sun 'til I feel your..."

I think the lyrics to this second verse are excellent, and definitely the best part about the song - they are very rich and so full of life. Madonna then sings a third verse, before a kind of engine revs up and Madonna sings, "Here comes the sun! Here comes the sun! And I say, never go away!" Madonna's vocals are sunlit with excellence and beauty, and she then goes on to a spoken section of the song where she speaks, "Waiting is the hardest thing. It's strange I feel like I've known you before. I tell myself that if I believe in you. And I want to understand you. In the dream of you. More and more. With all my heart and all of my soul. When I'm with you. That by sheer force of will. I feel like a magical child. I will raise you from the ground. Everything strange. And without a sound you'll appear. Everything wild. And surrender to me. To love." It may not may sense when reading the lyrics, but if you actually listen to it, you'll find that it does as Madonna speaks one line, but at the same time, she speaks the next line, and so on. This can obviously not be done in one take, so Madonna will have recorded her vocals for the first lines, then sang over a played back of the first. It's confusing, but works well! The chorus then repeats a few more times with a wonderful and joyous violin playing in the background, before Madonna sings "RAIN!" and the song ends wonderfully.

The video to Rain is beautiful. We see Madonna with short black hair looking wonderful in a covered-up outfit moving around on a stage in front of flashing cameras and light bulbs singing the song. She also stands behind a water-filled screen with an anonymous lover kissing him. Madonna also sits on a chair, looking around, listening to her headphones, writing stuff down and lots of other ordinary things! In a nutshell, it's very different to the dominatrix style Madonna we were shocked by just four videos previously with Erotica. In conclusion, Rain is a wonderful ballad with a chilled video to accompany it.

There's nothing special about this cd-single except for the cover. But it is most certainly a special item.
