It's Raining Men is een cover van de gelijknamige hit van The Weather Girls uit 1983, die in de Top 40 niet verder kwam dan de 31e plaats. Geri Halliwells versie staat op de soundtrack van de film Bridget Jones's Diary uit 2001. Het nummer is te horen tijdens de vechtscène tussen Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) en Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). Het nummer bereikte de vierde plaats in de Top 40 en deed het daarmee stukken beter dan het origineel. Ook deed It's Raning Men het beter dan de tweede single van de soundtrack van Bridget Jones's Diary: Out Of Reach van Gabrielle. Dat nummer kwam tot de tiende plaats. In tegenstelling tot Out Of Reach zijn in de videoclip van It's Raining Men geen beelden te zien uit Bridget Jones's Diary. De videoclip is eerder een eerbetoon aan twee jaren 80-films. In de clip doet Geri Halliwell een dansauditie voor een jury. Dat doet sterk denken aan een scène uit de film Flashdance uit 1983. De rest van clip ademt de sfeer van de film Fame uit 1980.

Songtekst

Humidity's rising
Barometer's getting low
According to all sources
The street's the place to go
Cause tonight for the first time (First time)
Just about half past ten (Half past ten)
For the first time in history
It's gonna start raining men (Gonna start raining men)

It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen
It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen

Humidity's rising
Barometer's getting low
According to all sources
The street's the place to go
Cause tonight for the first time (First time)
Just about half past ten (Half past ten)
For the first time in history
It's gonna start raining men (Gonna start raining men)

It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen

I'm gonna go out
I'm gonna let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet

It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Every specimen
Tall, blond, dark and mean
Rough and tough and strong and lean

God bless Mother Nature
She's a single woman too
She took off to heaven
And she did what she had to do
She taught every angel
To rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman
Could find a perfect guy

It's raining men

Don't get yourself wet, girl
I know you want to

I feel stormy weather moving in
About to begin (About to begin)
With the thunder, don't you loose your head
Rip off the roof and stay in bed (Rip off the roof and stay)

It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen
It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen
It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen
It's raining men
Hallelujah, it's raining men
Amen

It's raining men, it's raining men
It's raining men, it's raining men
It's raining men, it's raining men
It's raining men, it's raining men
