About Give Me the Night

"Give Me the Night" is a song recorded by American jazz and R&B musician George Benson, which he released from his 1980 studio album of the same title. It was written and composed by Heatwave's keyboard player Rod Temperton and produced by Quincy Jones. Patti Austin provides the backing and scat vocals that are heard throughout, and one of Benson's fellow jazz guitarists, Lee Ritenour, also performs on the selection. The song was a commercial success, and was Benson's first single to hit number one on the US Billboard Soul Singles chart. It also peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it his most successful pop entry. It also peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot Disco Singles chart and at number seven in the UK Singles Chart. "Give Me the Night" was one of the last disco singles to become a major success, with the steady decline of the genre in the early 1980s.

Whenever dark has fallen
You know the spirit of the party starts to come alive
Until the day is dawning
You can throw out all your blues and hit the city lights

'Cause there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So give me the night
Give me the night

You need the evening action
A place to dine, a glass of wine a little late romance
It's a chain reaction
You'll see the people of the world coming out to dance

'Cause there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So give me the night
Give me the night

So come on out tonight
And we'll lead the others on a ride through paradise
And if you feel all right
Then we can be lovers 'cause I see that starlight look in your eyes
And don't you know we can fly?

Just give me the night
Give me the night

Because there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So give me the night
Give me the night

So come on out tonight
And we'll lead the others on a ride through paradise
And if you feel all right
Then we can be lovers 'cause I see that starlight look in your eyes
Don't you know we can fly?

And if we stay together
We'll feel the rhythm of the evening taking us up high
Never mind the weather
We'll be dancing in the street until the morning light

'Cause there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
Give me the night
So give me the night
