The Fortunes are an English harmony beat group. Formed in Birmingham, the Fortunes first came to prominence and international acclaim in 1965, when "You've Got Your Troubles" broke into the US and UK Top 10s. Afterwards, they had a succession of hits including "Here It Comes Again" and "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again"; continuing into the 1970s with more globally successful releases such as "Storm in a Teacup (The Fortunes song)" and "Freedom Come, Freedom Go".

In 1966, their manager, Reginald Calvert, was shot to death in a dispute over pirate radio stations.

Fortunes - Here Comes That Rainy Day


T5

"Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" is the title of a pop song composed by John Macleod and Tony Macaulay which in 1971 became the third U.S. Top 40 hit for The Fortunes.

The song reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number 8 on the Cash Box Top 100.  The song was also a hit in Canada (number 25) and charted minorly in Australia.

The song was subsequently covered by Sonny & Cher and appears on their album All I Ever Need is You. An abbreviated cover of "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" was included as part of the extended LP version of "Stars on 45," a number-one hit from 1981.
