It's Raining Today
Scott Walker Lyrics


It's raining today
And I'm just about to forget
The train window girl
That wonderful day we met
She smiles through the smoke
From my cigarette

It's raining today
But once there was summer and you
And dark little rooms
And sleep in late afternoons
Those moments descend
On my window pane

I've hung around too long
Listening to the old landlady's hard-luck stories
You out of me, me out of you
We go like lovers
To replace the empty space
Repeat our dreams to someone new

It's raining today
And I watch the cellophane streets
No hang-ups for me
'Cause hang-ups need company
The street corner girl's
A cold trembling leaf

It's raining today
It's raining today

It's raining today
And I'm just about to forget
The train window girl
That wonderful day we met
She smiles through the smoke
From my cigarette

It's raining today
But once there was summer and you
And dark little rooms
And sleep in late afternoons
Those moments descend
On my window pane

I've hung around too long
Listening to the old landlady's hard-luck stories
You out of me, me out of you
We go like lovers
To replace the empty space
Repeat our dreams to someone new

It's raining today

And I watch the cellophane streets
No hang-ups for me
'cause hang-ups need company
The street corner girl's
A cold trembling leaf

It's raining today
It's raining today

RIP Scott Walker, one of the most haunting voices to ever exist.

Random Avenger

This song sounds like it could has been recorded in any year between 1920 and 2020.

Growler the 2nd

It was🤣

Seppo Innanen

Even in 2021 this song and performance is ahead of its time

@Jermy Hopkisn And they seem to have put just the right amount of reverb too. Not soaking wet like some of this era. (not that there is anything wrong with that, especially for Quincy Jones's Soul BossaNova which couldn't have worked so well any other way.)

Jermy Hopkisn

Well, if we're being serious it really couldn't have sounded quite like this anytime before the early 60's.

The genius of Angela Morley's string arrangement... that creeping uneasiness in the background - like overhead electricity pylons, lifting the hairs on the back of your neck skyward...

@oldjack1754 Definitely! There's a couple of Radiohead tracks from that era. Similar thing on Pyramid Song.

Jason Garfield Bardy

Brilliant, isn't it? The underlying tension of the strings juxtaposed with the soft melody, chimes and Scott's voice.

James Edwards

@oldjack1754 I definitely hear inspiration from that and the Tourist for some reason. I came across this because it's one of Thoms "desert island disks" had to listen ;)
