Rain Fall Down

Album: A Bigger Bang (2005)
Charted: 33
  • The second single released from A Bigger Bang, this song has a funk sound in the style of "Miss You." Mick Jagger said of it: "Rain Fall Down is a song about London. It has a line, 'Feel like we're living in a battleground, everyone's jazzed.' That was in my head already. There were so many armed police in the streets. Walking around, seeing machine guns, is not how you imagine London to be. If we keep going down this track, we're not going to get back." >>
