For years I've had the ghost of a chorus from a Jermaine Jackson song about rain drifting around in my head. I remembered that I liked it. I remembered it had something about falling rain in the chorus. I remembered liking the song, but not nearly enough to buy the album. (Yes, this was early college and vinyl was my favorite format.) What I did not remember was this totally 80s extravaganza. Over six minutes of West Side Story plot with crazy costumes, big hair, white leather and white motorcycles.
The song is "When the Rain Begins to Fall." I can finally stop trying to figure out what that song was. I still think the chorus is catchy. Maybe in another 19 years I'll listen to this song again.
If you find the setup as painful as I did, skip to 2:33, that where the chorus starts. Oh, did I mention it's a duet with Pia Zadora?
