"I See The Rain" is a 1967 song recorded by The Marmalade, written by lead guitarist William Junior Campbell and vocalist Dean Ford ( born Thomas McAleese).

This was the band's third CBS Records release, following their 1966 name change from Dean Ford and the Gaylords and change of label from Columbia (EMI)to CBS, and was one year prior to their first successful UK commercial release "Loving Things". The self-penned recording was praised by Jimi Hendrix as the 'best cut of 1967'.  . The recording became a chart-topper in the Netherlands that same year. Graham Nash of The Hollies, contributed to the session, but it did not chart in the UK, although the track, with its distinct mid 1960's psychedelic feel, has since attained a cult following and has been resurrected recently by artists such as Susanna Hoffs of the The Bangles and Matthew Sweet. (see Under the Covers, Vol. 1)

The Marmalade's original recording also featured in a major clothing chain worldwide advertisement campaign in 2002 featuring Dennis Hopper and Christina Ricci “The Gap - Two White Shirts (version 2)”, directed by the Coen brothers
