Deze discohit werd geschreven door Paul Jabara en Paul Shaffer. Nadat Diana Ross, Cher, Barbra Streisand en Donna Summer dit nummer niet wilden uitbrengen kregen de dames van The Weather Girls het in handen.

Het nummer gaat over mannen die letterlijk uit de lucht komen vallen. De dames hebben er 6 miljoen platen mee verkocht.

Er zijn vele covers van uitgebracht. De meest bekende is die van Geri Halliwell. Zij stond er in 9 landen mee op nummer 1 en het was daarmee de meest verkochte single in 2001.

Trivia

Wist je dat? It's Raining Men werd in 2001 gecoverd door ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell voor de soundtrack van de film Bridget Jones's Diary. Haar versie bereikte de vierde plaats in de Top 40.

Songtekst

Hi.
Hi.
We're your weather girls.
Uh huh.
And have we got news for you.
You better listen.
Get ready, all you lonely girls and leave those umbrellas at home.
Alright.

Humidity's rising
Barometer's getting low (How low, girl)
According to all sources (What sources now)
The street's the place to go (We'd better hurry up)
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 (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 lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

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

Oh, it's raining men, yeah

Humidity's rising (Humidity's rising)
Barometer's getting low (It's getting low low low low low low)
According to all sources (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 (Start raining men)

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 (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
Amen
It's raining men
Tall, blond, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean
Hallelujah
