(Chase)

 

Informação:

Such a Night foi escrita por Lincoln Chase e gravada por Clyde McPhatter e os Drifters (Atlantic 1019), cuja gravação alcançou o 5º lugar na tabela de rhythm & blues em 1954. A gravação de Johnnie Ray de Such a Night (Columbia 40020) nesse mesmo ano foi banida do ar nalgumas áreas por causa da sua letra sugestiva. No entanto, chegou a 1º lugar na Inglaterra. Outras gravações de Such a Night incluem as de Bonnie Paul com a Sy Oliver's Orchestra (Essex 352), Dinah Washington (Mercury 70336) and Jane Turzy (Decca 29087), todas em 1954; a de Vince Everett (ABC Paramount 10313) em 1962 e a de Conway Twitty (ABC Paramount 10550).

 

Elvis gravou Such a Night em 4 de abril de 1960, nos estúdios da RCA em Nashville. O take 14 foi o selecionado para lançamento. O lançamento em single teve uma permanência de 8 semanas na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard, chegando ao 16º lugar.

 

Letra:


It was a night, oo-oo, what a night, it was it really was such a night

The moon was bright, oh, how so bright, it was it really was such a night
The night was alight with stars above
And when she kissed me I had to fall in love

Oh, it was a kiss, oo-oo, what a kiss, it was it really was such a kiss
Oh, how she could kiss, oh, what a kiss, it was it really was such a kiss
Just the thought of her lips sets me afire
I reminisce and I’m filled with desire
But I’d gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I’ll always remember

1. Oh, that night, oo-oo, what a night , it was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love and the night was gone
But I’ll never forget the kiss, the kiss in the moonlight
Oo-oo, such a kiss, such a night

1. (repete)

How well I remember, I’ll always remember

That night, oo-oo, what a night, it was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
But I’d gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I’ll always remember

Oh, that night, oo-oo, what a night, it was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
Well, she's gone, gone, gone, yeah, she's gone, gone, gone
Came the dawn, dawn, dawn, and my love was gone
But before that dawn, yes, before that dawn and before that dawn
Oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo… such a night
