Eddie Rabbitt’s Inspiration
In the 60’s, Rabbitt got his idea of the song one day when he was in his apartment and it was raining. He recorded the idea and abandoned it. Then in 1980, Rabbitt found the tape of his initial recording for the song and finished writing it with the help of David Malloy and Evan Stevens.
The song was adapted by Alvin and the Chipmunks in their album Urban Chipmunks. It was also played on the TV show, Family Guy.
