Laughter in the Rain" is a song recorded by Neil Sedaka, composed by him with lyrics by Phil Cody. It includes a 20-second saxophone solo by Jim Horn. Cody reports writing the lyrics in about five minutes after smoking marijuana and falling asleep under a tree for a couple of hours. In the USA, "Laughter in the Rain" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on February 1, 1975 (it was Sedaka's first single to top the Hot 100 since 1962).
Neil was recording an album in London with 10cc when he reconnected with Elton, who he first met in 1972. Elton had just started his own record label, Rocket Records, and offered to put out a Sedaka single in America. Since "Laughter In The Rain" was already a hit in the UK, that was the choice, and while Sedaka's name didn't carry much clout among radio station program directors, anything with Elton John's name on it was sure to get some spins
Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside. After a while we run under a tree I turn to her and she kisses me There with the beat of the rain on the leaves Softly she breathes and I close my eyes Sharing our love under stormy skies. Ooh, I hear laughter in the rain Walking hand in hand with the one I love Ooh, how I love the rainy days And the happy way I feel inside. I feel the warmth of her hand in mine
