    Find out how the lyrics to Rain by the beatles came to be written.


    The Beatles Rain song was written by John Lennon with the aim of describing state of mind, and how nothing really mattered as everything is the same. These themes would be heard time and time again on future Beatles records, especially those written by George.


    In the Rain song John tried to write that we should not worry about the rain, as the misery that it may produce is just a state of mind, and nothing had really changed in reality so be happy.

    In addition to the Beatles discussing philosophical feelings for the first time, there was also an enormous amount of musical experimental on Rain, and it gave a taster of things to come on the revolver album and beyond..

    In addition to the slowed down recording of the Rain song , it was also the first song to make use of backward recording to produce a new style of sound. John had first stumbled upon hearing things backwards by mistake when he was trying to play a demo of Rain on his tape player, but put it in wrong. He then worked with George Martin who effortlessly recreated the sound for the Beatles.

    The musical experimentation and the discussing of philosophical ideals makes Rain of of the most ground breaking records that the Beatles ever produced.
