Whitesnake - "Still of the Night" (video)

Το single των Whitesnake "Still of the Night"
In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start-a shaking
And I can't take no more

No, no, no

Now I just wanna get close to you
And taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat
In the still of the night
In the still of the night

Over here baby

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to c-c-c-come

Ooh, baby

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the still of the night

Ooh, baby
Ooh, babe
I can't keep away
Closer and closer, need to be closer
I can't keep away, can't keep away, can't keep away
I can't keep away, no
You gotta give me love
Got to give me some lovin' everyday
You can't keep away

Ooh baby, ooh woman, Ahh

Get over here, babe

In the still of the night, I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night, I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Ooh! Mama

Now I just wanna get close to you
And taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat
In the still of the night
Ooh, yeah

In the still of the night
I will be sneaking 'round your door
In the still of the night
In the still of the night
Ain't nothing gonna stop me now
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night
Still of the night, still of the night, still of the night


Τον Μάρτιο του 1987 κυκλοφορούσε το single των Whitesnake "Still of the Night" (με το "Here I Go Again", "You're Gonna Break My Heart Again" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου). Τον επόμενο μήνα (7 Απριλίου) "βγήκε" ο δίσκος που απογείωσε τους Snakes, το ομώνυμο album (ή "1987") όπου το "Still of the Night" επιλέχθηκε ως εναρκτήριο τραγούδι (στην Ευρωπαϊκή έκδοση, η Αμερικάνικη ξεκινούσε με την επανεκτέλεση του "Crying in the Rain").

Την σύνθεση και τους στίχους υπογράφουν ο David Coverdale και ο John Sykes. Στα συν το υπέροχο βίντεο με πρωταγωνίστρια την (μετέπειτα σύζυγο του Coverdale) Tawny Kitaen. Το 2009 ο Βρετανός τραγουδιστής παραχωρώντας συνέντευξη στο Metal Hammer σχολίασε για το "Still of the Night", το οποίο βασίσθηκε σε μουσική ιδέα από παλαιό - ξεχασμένο demo των Deep Purple:

«When my mother died I was going through the stuff at her house and found some early demo cassettes. One of them was a song that Ritchie Blackmore and I had been working on which was the basic premise of what would become "Still of the Night".

It was totally unrecognizable, so Ritchie doesn't have anything to worry about... neither do I! Ha ha ha! I took it as far as I could then I gave it to Sykesy when we were in the south of France, and he put the big guitar hero stuff on there.

John hated blues so I had to work within those parameters. I manipulated to be electric blues, but how he performed it was fabulous for his time and relatively unique because of the songs. There were a lot of people doing that widdly stuff but they didn't have the quality of those songs.»
