|"November Rain" is a
power ballad by American
Guns N' Roses, written by lead singer
Rose and released as a single in June 1992. It appears on the album
Use Your Illusion I. It features a sweeping orchestral backing
and is one of Guns N' Roses' longest songs.
"November Rain" peaked at number 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the longest song in history to enter the top ten of that chart.
The song is composed in the key of C major aside from the coda, which is in C minor, but since the guitars, basses and piano are tuned a half step down, the song sounds as if it is in B major and B minor.
Its distinct symphonic overtone owes to a sweeping string arrangement, orchestrated by Rose.:318 Most live performances during the Use Your Illusion tour lacked the orchestral backing of the song (the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards being the best-known exception).
It is the longest song to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The song peaked at #3 on the chart, becoming the band's sixth and last Top 10 hit, and eighth Top 40 hit. On the radio, "November Rain" is sometimes played in a shortened version of approximately six minutes, but many classic rock stations continue to play the full version. At around seven minutes in, the song fades and then builds into a two-minute coda featuring lead guitar by lead guitarist Slash, accompanied by vocal chants. This song is listed at number six in the The 100 Greatest Guitar Solos list by Guitar World. This song is also rated #9 in the Richter Scale best songs of all time.
