"I Love The Night" was released on Blue Oyster Cult's fifth studio album, Spectres, in the winter of 1977. The record received some lackluster reviews at the time of release, mainly due to the fact that the band had turned away somewhat from the classic sound and dark, indecipherable lyrics towards a more pop rock sound. (Their next studio album, 1979's Mirrors, usually receives the brunt of the criticism for the more single orientated change in course, but it really started here on Spectres.) I'm a huge fan of both the dark earlier work and the later stuff....and it does seem that time has tempered the disdain some critics and fans had for both some of these mid period albums....and the true BOC fans love it all! :-)

The 2012 Blue Oyster Cult boxset (The Complete Columbia Albums Collection (17 Disc Box Set)....is an absolutely stunning remaster of all BOC's albums, and if you are a fan of this band you really owe it to yourself to hear these albums for the first time.....this music has never sounded so fantastic! (Well, since vinyl days that is!)

This is a seriously beautiful song, one of the greatest from a band that produced more than it's share of incredible music. I've been planning a video for this track for a long time, but it's been stuck as one of 5 or 6 other "night" songs that I'm hoping to do and have been trying to decide which concept to apply to which track, hoping they will each end up not looking too much alike. Decided to make a video for each of these tracks almost two years ago....happy to finally get one out!

This is the seventh video I've created for a Blue Oyster Cult track (and the third for a track from Specters), the others being: "The Vigil", "Godzilla" (down but not out!), "Nosferatu", "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", "Imaginos", and "Sinful Love"...check 'em if you like.

Till next time....hope you enjoy the effort for this wonderful track.

[Lyrics]
That night her kiss told me it was over
I walked out late into the dark
The misty gloom seems to soak up my sorrow
The further I went on
I felt a spreading calm
Then suddenly my eyes were bathed in light
And the lovely lady in white was by my side
She said "Like me I see you're walking alone
Won't you please stay?"
I couldn't look away

She said
I love the night
The day is OK and the sun can be fun but I live
To see those rays slip away
I love the night
There's so much I can show and give to you
If you will welcome me tonight

If only you had been there my dear
We could have shared this together

No mortal was meant to know such wonder
One look in the mirror told me so
Come darkness I'll see her again
Yes I'm gonna go
'Cause now I know

I love the night
The day is OK and the sun can be fun but I live
To see those rays slip away

I love the night
I love the night
I love the night
