O nly a handful of Madness singles had any success in the US, “The Sun And The Rain” being the last. It’s classic Barson, with a chorus that could only be described as the sound of someone aspiring to flight with rain-soaked shoes. The US flip side is “Time For Tea,” a nonalbum track that was appended to the Keep Moving CD. Typical of Lee Thompson’s tracks, the sax plays a prominent role in the melody and the song has an edgy, modern feel (not unlike his “Blue Skinned Beast”). However, it’s not better than anything else that made the elpee cut for Keep Moving.
