"Rain" is a single released by the British rock band Status Quo in 1976. It was written by Rick Parfitt[1] included on the album Blue for You.[2]

The track "Rain" was originally intended to be included on the album On the Level, but at the time of the recording sessions Parfitt had not completed the song and so it was held over to the band's next album release.

The song was reprised, in 2014, for the band's thirty-first studio album Aquostic (Stripped Bare). It was featured in the ninety-minute launch performance of the album at London's Roundhouse on 22 October, the concert being recorded and broadcast live by BBC Radio 2 as part of their In Concert series.[3][4]
