Travis frontman Fran Healy penned this song on holiday in Israel from his native Glasgow, where he expected some sun, sun, sun.

Afterwards he processed the image through the airbrush, multiplying the number of subjects on the cover. Surely this song has one of the most intense lyrics written by Robert Plant. Two simple, short verses, and still so emotional for their ermetism, which immortalizes this poem among the most beautiful love songs ever written. And then, one of those melodies that can turn you into a new dimensioncan. The languid, sensual essence of the song is transformed into the ending in a sense of liberation, leaving darkness behind, with positivity and renewed wisdom. And on these feelings, on these wide spaces caressed by the wind, where unhappiness and joy seem alternating, we also let ourselves be transported in the personal pursuit of our unique happiness.

Guitarist Jimmy Page originally constructed the melody of this song at his home in Plumpton , England, where he had recently installed a studio mixing console. With a working title of "Slush", a reference to its easy listening simulated orchestral arrangement,  Page was able to bring in a completed arrangement of the melody, for which singer Robert Plant composed the words. Plant ranks his vocal performance on the track as one of his best. George Harrison was reportedly the inspiration for "The Rain Song" when he made a comment to Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham , about the fact that the group never wrote any ballads. George [Harrison] was talking to Bonzo one evening and said, 'The problem with you guys is that you never do ballads. In fact, you'll notice I even quote 'Something' in the song's first two chords.
