"Tell It to the Rain" is a song composed by Mike Petrillo and Chubby Cifelli and popularized by The Four Seasons in 1966 and early 1967. The single reached the #10 position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1]

A main point of interest is the song's arrangement, which includes a prominent 12-string electric guitar part, as well as sound effects and a crescendo of vocals toward the end. It's one of the band's more "progressive" singles.
