JOHN 1966: 'After we'd done the session on that particular song – it ended at about four or five in the morning – I went home with a tape to see what else you could do with it.
And I was sort of very tired, you know, not knowing what I was doing, and I just happened to put it on my own tape recorder and it came out backwards.
And I liked it better.
So that's how it happened.'

JOHN 1980: 'That's me again – with the first backwards tape on record anywhere… I got home from the studio and I was stoned out of my mind on marijuana… and, as I usually do, I listened to what I'd recorded that day.
Somehow it got on backwards and I sat there, transfixed, with the earphones on, with a big hash joint.
I ran in the next day and said, 'I know what to do with it, I know… listen to this!' So I made them all play it backwards.
The fade is me actually singing backwards with the guitars going backwards.
(sings) 'Sharethsmnowthsmeanss!' That one was the gift of God… of Ja actually – the god of marijuana, right? So Ja gave me that one.'

RINGO 1984: 'My favorite piece of me is what I did on 'Rain.' I think I just played amazing.
I was into the snare and hi-hat.
I think it was the first time I used the trick of starting a break by hitting the hi-hat first instead of going directly to a drum off the hi-hat.
I think it's the best out of all the records I've ever made.
'Rain' blows me away.
It's out in left field.
I know me and I know my playing… and then there's 'Rain.''

PAUL circa-1994: 'It was nice.
I really enjoyed that one.'

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes, if the rain comes

When the sun shines they slip into the shade
(when the sun shines down)
And sip their lemonade
(when the sun shines down)
When the sun shines, when the sun shines

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

I can show you that when it starts to rain
(when the rain comes down)
Everything's the same
(when the rain comes down)
I can show you, I can show you

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines
(when it rains and shines)
It's just a state of mind?
(when it rains and shines)
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
