"Singin' In the Rain" is a song with lyrics by Arthur Freed and music by Nacio Herb Brown, published in 1929. However, it is unclear exactly when the song was written with some claiming that the song was written and performed as early as 1927. But the song is surely best known today as the centerpiece of the musical film Singin' in the Rain (1952), in which Gene Kelly memorably danced to the song while splashing through puddles during a rainstorm in California. Alfred Hitchcock in NORTH BY NORTWEST and Stanley Kubrick in CLOCKWORK ORANGE pay tribute to Gene Kelly and this song.
