"Tears in Rain" is a composition by Vangelis for Blade Runner.

The track appears in all versions of the film when Roy Batty dies. The title of the track is derived from the dying speech Batty gives in the scene, which is contained in the film's soundtrack.

The piece also appears in Blade Runner 2049 when K lies down on the steps and Deckard meets his daughter, making it the only music composition to appear in both films and their respective soundtracks.

Under the title "Farewell," a version of the track also appears on the album Blade Runner: Orchestral Adaptation of Music Composed for the Motion Picture by Vangelis by The New American Orchestra.
