"Who Let in the Rain" is a song by American singer Cyndi Lauper, from her fourth studio album Hat Full of Stars (1993). It was released as the lead single from the album on June 22, 1993.[1]

Song information[edit]

The single was the first from the Hat Full of Stars album. It is a ballad about the end of a relationship that proved popular among Lauper's fans. Outside the United States, it was a modest hit peaking in the top 40 in the UK and New Zealand. In the US, the song failed to make the Hot 100 and reached only as high as number 33 on the Adult Contemporary singles chart.

Its release featured a B-side called "Cold", an up-beat track from the Hat Full of Stars sessions.

Junior Vasquez produced the song with Lauper. He produced most of the rest of the album as well. Lauper wrote the song with Allee Willis.

Lauper re-recorded "Who Let in the Rain" for her Shine album which was released in Japan in 2004.
