"Let it Go" is a 1981 song by British rock band Def Leppard from their multi-platinum album High 'n' Dry. It was one of two singles from the album, and reached number 34 on the Mainstream Rock charts. It was originally titled "When the Rain Falls" with different lyrics as played at New Theatre, Oxford in 1980.

The 7" single runs about 30 seconds shorter than the album version; no lyrics are removed, but the opening guitar intro and the other guitar solos are shortened slightly.

Music video

The music video for this song was directed by Doug Smith and shot on 22 July 1981 at the Royal Court Theatre in Liverpool, England. The photo on "Let It Go" single cover was taken from that shoot. Other songs filmed that day were "High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)" and "Bringin' On the Heartbreak".
