In popular culture[edit]

In 1968, The Beatles paraphrased the first line of "Raining in My Heart" in their song "Dear Prudence" as "The sun is up [instead of "out"]; the sky is blue."

Rick Danko covered the song on his 1989 tour as a member of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band; he performed it live throughout his solo career.

This song is referenced in Alvin Stardust's song "I Feel Like Buddy Holly." That song's refrain is: "Well, I feel like Buddy Holly, 'cause it's raining In my heart."
