Here Comes The Rain Again. Why??

Recommended Posts

After all these years I still can't understand why The Eurythmics 'Here Comes The Rain Again' was included as an interlude in the Sticky and Sweet Tour.

I love The Eurythmics and that song, but have no idea why it was there.

Does anyone have an answer?

Does it really matters? It was cool and it worked perfectly.

+ The video was visually very nice and audio was mixed well with RAIN + smooth transition to DEVIL WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE YOU. :)

IMO

It's all about change mostly (caterpillar, butterfly) and another sort of manifestation of a common Madonna mantra that in spite of looming obstacles or whatever path you take, you can always change. That's what I always took from it. So many symbols in the video though so it's really open to your own interpretation.

I adore this interlude! I have no factual basis but often wondered if Annie Lennox received some financial compensation (royalties) for Madonna's use of the clip that she could donate to her charity since they both lend aid to causes in Africa.

Not saying it was bad, it just jolted me out of the show and distracted me. CGI video with no Madonna plus Annie Lennox felt like I was at a different show. Wish she would release her concepts for her tours in book form or something. Her process and choices are fascinating.

The entire tour pretty much played on the concept of mashups.

  • Vogue - 4 Minutes
  • Die Another Day - Afrika Bambaataa
  • Into The Groove - Toop Toop
  • Holiday - Celebration/MJ
  • Dress You Up - My Sharona
  • Rain - Here Comes the Rain Again
  • Music - Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit
  • Like a Prayer - Feels Like Home
  • Frozen - I'm Not Alone
  • Hung Up - Pantera

Most of those didnt work imo - she went a bit too obscure with those but then Kevin Antunes is a poor musical director compared to Stuart and Pat :(

I thought they were all great! It was a well thought out tour with lots of high energy. Especially Into The Groove, which was the highlight of the tour for me.
