I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THE DAHL HAUS PRESENTS: 6 MORE WEEKS OF WINTER...


































































BLAME IT ON THE RAIN











"Blame It on the Rain" is a song recorded by Milli Vanilli and written by hitmaker Diane Warren. Released during the summer of 1989, it became
their last 
Billboard
Hot 100
 number
one hit (November 25 - December 2, 1989) before their scandal broke out. The
club mix version of the song was included on the "All or Nothing (U.S.
Remix Album)" and included scratches and samples from other
"rain" themed songs such as "Walking in the Rain" and
"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head". The extended version of the club
mix featured the rap from "It's Your Thing", which was an album
track. The single version of "Blame It On The Rain" did not appear on
any Milli Vanilli albums until the 2006 "Greatest Hits" release.










This was
one of the two songs performed by Milli Vanilli themselves when they were a special guest on The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 (The other was "Girl You Know It's True"). The plot
involved Bowser's attempt to
kidnap the duo. However, after the scandal broke, the two songs were replaced
with generic instrumentals in the episode.




The song was re recorded by Sam Moore & Fantasia in August 2006 for Moore's star
studded compilation album entitled Overnight
Sensational
. The remake was produced by Randy Jackson and released on Rhino Records.
Coincidentally, Fantasia is signed to J Records, headed by
Clive Davis. Davis was responsible for signing Milli Vanilli.


In an episode of Full House, D.J. Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler are doing homework, and they sing this
song.Michelle Tanner then sings "Rain, rain, go
away...".


In their song "Blame it on Me,"
the Barenaked Ladies sing, "Milli Vanilli told you to
blame it on the rain, but if you blame it on the rain tell me what can we gain,
if all else fails, you can blame it on me."


In 1991, German singer Adams
Hamb├╝ger-Hatt released a German version of the song titled, Blame it on der Regen.


On May 15, 2008, contestant Diana
Drake sang "Blame It on the Rain" on Don't Forget the Lyrics! for the $1,000,000 prize. She missed,
and dropped down to $100,000.[1]






"Blame
It On The Rain" debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on October 7, 1989, at number
sixty-five.[2] Seven weeks later, for the week ending
November 25, 1989, it reached number one, and occupied the spot for two weeks.
It also spent a total of twenty-three weeks on the Hot 100. The song became
Milli Vanilli's third number one single on the Hot 100 after "Baby Don't Forget My Number" and "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You".
"Rain" was their final single to top the chart before their infamous
scandal took off.


It was preceded at number one on
the Hot 100 by Bad English's "When I See You
Smile
" and succeeded by Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire".


The song was ranked at number
twenty-one on Billboard's Year-End Singles list for 1989, and number forty-six
for 1990.
