1990: Summer Rain By Belinda Carlisle

Composed by Robbie Seidman and Maria Vidal. Recorded by Belinda Carlisle for her third solo album Runaway Horses. The song is about a man who goes away to war and leaves his wife, saying that nothing will change and that they will be together forever and always. Although the conflict is unidentified, images in the video of a transport aircraft on an airfield and troops parachuting from transport aircraft suggest the man is an airborne soldier. The song is set in the present, with his widow remembering the last time she saw him. Belinda Carlisle stated in May 2013 that this was her favorite of her own songs. It was most popular in Australia where it reached No.6. Genre: Pop. Chart-History.
