Red Rain" is the first track on English rock musician Peter Gabriel's 1986 solo album So. In the USA, it was the second single from the album and reached number three on Billboard magazine's Mainstream Rock chart in 1986, where it stayed for three weeks between July and August. In the rest of the world it was not released until 1987 and received less airplay and fewer sales, peaking at 46 in the UK singles chart after entering the chart in July of that year

Red rain is coming down Red rain Red rain is pouring down Pouring down all over me. Red rain Putting the pressure on much harder now To return again and again Just let the red rain splash you Let the rain fall on your skin I come to you defences down With the trust of a child. Don’t get me started on the bass).

Artist: Peter Gabriel ( Peter Brian Gabriel). Translations: Arabic, French, Polish, Russian. Red rain is coming down. Red rain is pouring down. Pouring down all over me. I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream. Well, I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town.

I sent Peter Gabriel my album entitled Red Red Rain in the spring of 1983. The group was called Stream Dreams and the title cut had the exact same melody and chord progression AND words as his Red Rain. The ironic thing is that Gabriel was my musical hero so I never pursued any avenues of trying to get any monetary compensation, reasoning he must have listened to the song and got it in his head and dreamed the dream he probably actually had, the tune and the lyrical idea somehow subconsciously guiding his dream. Alex from Atlanta, GaI believe that Peter Gabriel was relating Red Rain to war or the Holocaust. The line "they're burning the flesh along much harder now, to return again and again. may refer to the Germans burning the Jews in the ovens and to keep doing it again and again. Oldpink from New Castle, InFantastic imagery and the percussion definitely stands out.
