"Rain" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure. It appears on their eighth studio album Cowboy. The song was released in the UK by Mute Records as the album's third single, although with multiple remixes, bonus material and an extended playing time, the "Rain" release could be considered an EP. The release is titled as "Rain Plus" and was ineligible for the UK Singles Chart at the time due to its track count and length.
