What was the deal with Rain/Here Comes The Rain Again?

Recommended Posts

Why, out of nowhere, there was, for 85 shows, an Eurythmics song performed in a Madonna tour?

It wasn't exactly a mash-up or a cover or like if Madonna decided to perform again her 1993 hit cuz 90% of it was the Eurythmics song with Lennox's voice.

Did it have anything to do with the fact that Madonna sang a whole verse in Annie's 2007 Sing single, so by default M should give Annie/Eurythmics some space in her new tour? Lol

:lol:

I just think that she recently mentioned she wanted water for some tours, i imagine it would have been for that performance and Devil.

I think some of you take some of this stuff all way too literally.

I think she just put a song she likes and connected it to her song because of the "rain" in the title, nothing more than that, I think

I’ve always had this theory that Annie Lennox just had her in song about her efforts in Africa and had been very vocal about her work, so maybe Madonna being invested in the same philanthropic issues gave her some notoriety trough bringing some attention in her most famous song (even if it was an eurythmics song).

Y'all that interlude mashup was pretty cool. I wouldn't have known of that amazing Eurythmics song if it wasn't for M (yet again) lol

Man, you MUST be young!!

i think Madonna just likes the song, period.  Obviously, the 'rain' connotations were spoken about at musical concept stage for the tour.

Hate to put it down, but it looked pretty sloppy when I saw the tour twice!

Please don't be ageist towards me, I'm just a dumb 24 yo ignorant of pop culture and pop music pre-2000. Please oh please have piety!

LOL. This whole thread got me into a Eurythmics marathon though, yas Annie Lennox give me life with that falsetto!

Ageism works both ways, doesn't it? 😇

I pretty much grew up obsessing with both Madonna and The Eurythmics at the same time.  I recommended you source "Touch Dance", pretty much the YCD for Annie and Dave.  Great remixes of tracks from "Touch".

That interlude made absolutely no sense. I would love to know what was the thinking involved with it's creation. It wasn't even a proper mashup. I'm still confused.

Take away the tacky visuals (or simply close your eyes) and it's perfect :inlove:

Here comes the rain again is a brilliant song. Worked perfectly with Madonna's Rain.   Both beautiful haunting songs with Rain in the title. Makes perfect sense.
