Dave Stewart stated the song is meant to be melancholy. “Here Comes the Rain Again” developed out of an argument between Stewart and Annie Lennox in a New York hotel room. The song’s melody had been composed but no words yet. Lennox looked out the window and announced “Here comes the rain again.” “Here comes the rain again Raining in my head like a tragedy Tearing me apart like a new emotion” There is a lush quality to the song as driving synthpop meets the string section of the British Philharmonic Orchestra. From the album “Touch,” “Here Comes the Rain Again” was one of their biggest hits at US #4 and UK #8.
