In , Billboard ranked it as the 40th Madonna's biggest hit in the United States. In Australia, the song debuted at number 21 on the charts before rising and peaking at number five. It was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association ARIA for shipments of 35, copies. The blue tone of the video was done manually after being shot in black and white.
The music video for "Rain" was filmed by director Mark Romanek during May 16—19, at a Santa Monica Airport hangar in Santa Monica, California. It displays Madonna during a film shoot, with Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto playing the director alongside a Japanese film crew. Romanek and Madonna initially wanted to get Jean-Luc Godard or Federico Fellini to play the director in the video. It was very Zen, very stripped away. She was this accessible, vulnerable creature surrounded by the high-tech and the global.
Madonna was also seen reclining on a riveted aluminium chaise lounge known as the Lockheed Lounge, designed by then unknown Marc Newson. She then appears in front of a background of bright lights, representing the sun-lit sky, and also in a scene of her kissing a man behind glass on which water falls. The video ends with an air view of open umbrellas covering the entire floor.

This particular releases is an absolutely must-have for any and all true Madonna fans.
Not only do you get 3 versions of Rain, but Bad Girl, Waiting, Up Down Suite and Fever gets thrown in for good measure. Remix-wise Rain gets a somewhat uplifting face-lift versus the more heavier album version. I did expect a little more remixes of this song but why tamper with perfection? Bad Girl is basically just a extended version as the title states, but if you're a fan of the song and the album version which clocks in just under 6 minutes didn't satisfy you-this is the mix for you.
Then in the middle of the song where Madonna starts talking: I prefer the album version to this one. An exclusive to the U. This version is a bit more Kinky than the orginal. The lyrics are the same, but the vocals were completly re-done. This version also features a rap from Everlast.
