“Here Comes the Rain Again”
On an overcast day in New York City, Dave Stewart began playing minor chords on a small keyboard. Sitting at a window nearby, his bandmate and then-lover Annie Lennox looked at the gray sky and spontaneously sang, "Here comes the rain again," starting this melancholy song that uses the weather as a metaphor for a sullen mood. "The whole song was about that undecided thing, like here comes depression, or here comes that downward spiral," Stewart said. "But then it goes, 'So talk to me like lovers do.'"
