Who Sings Laughter in the Rain first and originaly

Laughter in the Rain is a 1974 Pop Song written by Phil Cody and Neil Sedaka, Uniquely, this lyric was written by Cody in only about five minutes after he smoking marijuana and slept for several hours under a tree.

The first and original singer of the song Laughter in the Rain is Neil Sedaka. A few weeks before planning to release this single, Sedaka heard the version of "Laughter in the Rain" by singer Lea Roberts on the radio, then he called Elton John to ask MCA Records to speed up the version of Sedaka to be released within the next five days.

Sedaka recorded this single at Clover Studios in Los Angeles with Robert Appere producing. The musicians were the people who played on many of James Taylor's hits and included Levon Sklar on bass, Russ Kunkel and Danny Kortchmar on guitars, and Brenda Russell singing backup.

In this song also includes a 20-second saxophone solo by Jim Horn, the opening chord of the chorus was based on that used by John in "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Sedaka named it as "drop-dead chord."

In America, Laughter in the Rain is Sedaka's comeback single. He had 11 Top-40 hits from 1960 to 1963. But, after the British Invasion he could no longer score hit. His fortunes were so bad in America, that this song was at first released only in England, where it was included on an album called Overnight Success.

This song reached #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on February 1, 1975. And also spent two weeks at the top of the adult contemporary chart.

The record was also a major hit in Canada, reaching #2 on the pop singles chart and #1 on the adult contemporary chart. It was also released in the U.K., where it spent nine weeks on the Singles Chart, peaking at #15 on June 22, 1974.



Laughter in the Rain Lyric

Strolling along country roads with my baby 
It starts to rain, it begins to pour 
Without an umbrella we're soaked to the skin 
I feel a shiver run up my spine
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain,
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, 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

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain, 
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, how I love the rainy days and the happy way I feel inside
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain, 
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, how I love the rainy days and the happy way I feel inside

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain,
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, how I love the rainy days and the happy way I feel inside 

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain, 
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, how I love the rainy days and the happy way I feel inside

Oo, I hear laughter in the rain,
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Oo, how I love the rainy days and the happy way I feelinside

A good singer uses words to tell a story through both words and emotion, his ability to get his message across in an emotional fashion is art!
