Tinseltown in the rain is a single by The Blue Nile. It is taken from their album A walk across the rooftops. The town of tinsel (tinsel) is in this case the Scottish Glasgow.The writer trying to find love in a city full of asphalt. The band had it not financially during their best start. The members had to practice at home, especially in the narrow House of Paul Buchanan. A striking feature of the song is the sustained rhythmic riff in the background. The song sold well for a long time, but just too little to scoring high in the charts. Andrea Corr, of Irish origin and one of The Corrs recorded it for her album Lifelines.
The image presented (like the album) only the British hit parade. In Netherlands hit the picture though to. It was the only hit of the band in Netherlands. In Belgium the band had no hit.
