    Rain is a song by Madonna included in her 1992 album Erotica and released as a single in 1993.

    This song was written and produced by Madonna and Shep Pettibone.

    Rain was the fifth single released from Erotica (the fourth in the United States) and it became a top 10 hit in a lot of countries around the world, including the U.K., while it peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    The high budget music video was directed by Mark Romanek, and it was shoot in black and white at first and then it was digitally colored. Check out the stunning visual HERE.

    Rain was performed during The Girlie Show in 1993.

    This beautiful song was included in the ballads compilation Something To Remember, released in 1995.

    The beauty of M face in this video it's just WOW.
    The Erotica era was brilliant indeed.

    This is my favourite Madonna ballad.

    A beautiful song from a stunning album, both of which, I feel, are criminally overlooked!

    And I want to understand you
    In the dream of you
    More and more and more
    With all my heart and all 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


    Just one word: awesome!

    Such a beautiful song and the performance on TGS was amazing, but I don't think she could pull off this type of vocal nowadays. She struggled on TGS to perform it and half the reason that performance is amazing is because it's the three of them - which will never happen again.

    I always prefered "I'll Remember"

    I always preferred I'll Remember too, but Rain really represented a bit of fresh air after a series of rough/sexual singles. I really enjoyed Justify My Love, Erotica, Deeper And Deeper, Bad Girl, but I was missing the 'old', sweet Madonna, and Rain was finally a non-sex-related single, and she was not a """slut""" in the video.
    A first, perfect example of the "mature" Madonna just before the Secret, Take A Bow and all the singles she released until Music.

    I'm so mad at her for ignoring so many jems during her tour, it's like she forgot she recorded those tunes, Rain is one of these :-?

    The song is ok, but the single cover on the left in the opening post is the worst she has ever had. She looks like she was having one spliff too many.

    I didn't like this song at first, while my sister loved it right from the start. But I'm soooo glad it was released as a single, because the video made me fall in love with the song and I finally understood why my sister loved this song right from day one.

    I remember seeing this video a lot on MTV and VH1 i nearly 00s, and probably only video from Erotica that i kept seeing a lot. I always thought it was boring song (well i was 10)

    But recently this song hit me, it's stunning. Eternal production, emotions, it's just perfect. Listened now that Remix edit found on CD single it's really great and gave this song another dimensions.

    And I'll remember following this was so great.

    a great song. And honestly the only one from Erotica I saw on TV during my childhood or heard on the radio. I think it's also the first Madonna song I really knew and experienced when it came out
