"Rain" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that was first released in May 1966 as the B-side of their "Paperback Writer" single. Both songs were recorded during the sessions for the album Revolver although neither appears on that album. The song was written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It is noted for its slowed-down rhythm track, an example of the tape-manipulation techniques the band embraced at this time, and backwards vocals over the song's coda. The single's release marked the first time that reversed sounds had appeared in a pop song, although the Beatles used the same technique on the Revolver track "Tomorrow Never Knows", released in August 1966.
