"Even the Nights Are Better" is the title of a popular song from 1982 (see 1982 in music) by the Australian group Air Supply. It was written by Terry Skinner, J.L. Wallace and Ken Ball, a songwriting collaboration that also yielded a hit song for The Carpenters ("Touch Me When We're Dancing"). "Even the Nights Are Better" was included on Air Supply's 1982 album Now and Forever.
Released as a single in mid-1982, "Even the Nights Are Better" first charted in the United States on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, where it spent four weeks at #1 in July and August. This was Air Supply's third song to reach the summit on this chart; "Lost in Love" had gone to #1 on the AC chart in 1980, while "Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)" had done the same in 1981. In September 1982, the song reached its peak position of #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's seventh consecutive Top 5 hit on the U.S. pop chart. In England, where the group did not enjoy the same amount of success as they did in Australia or the U.S., the song reached #44 on the UK Singles Chart.
Although Air Supply would continue to record and perform concerts (except for a few year hiatus in the late 1980s and early 1990s), "Even the Nights Are Better" would prove to be one of the last hit records for the group in the United States.
