Whitesnake - 'Still of The Night' (Look Back)

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.

Το εν λόγω μουσικό κομμάτι αποτελεί και την ναυαρχίδα της νέας συλλογής των Whitesnake υπό τον τίτλο "Greatest Hits 2022 - Revisited - Remixed - Remastered", της οποίας κάποιες εκδόσεις κυκλοφορούν ήδη και οι υπόλοιπες θα "βγουν" μάσα στο καλοκαίρι...

Η συλλογή των Whitesnake 'Greatest Hits 2022'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection.

He explains: “We’ve definitely expanded on the original Greatest Hits, took them all out of the sonic time capsule of the ’80s and ’90s, and brought them up to date, sound-wise … as always, we have the original albums for those who consider them holy relics.

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, who also appeared on Whitesnake’s recent Red, White and Blues trilogy, adds Hammond organ to more than half the songs on the collection. His scorching contributions can be heard on the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “You’re Gonna Break My Heart Again,” and more.

New performances by former Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg can also be heard on “The Deeper The Love” and “Judgement Day” from the 1989 album, Slip of the Tongue. Along with those new additions, Coverdale also went back to the vault to unearth vintage performances by guitarist John Sykes that didn’t appear on the original recordings, including a solo on “Slide It In” and rhythm guitar on “Give Me All Your Love.”

Whitesnake Greatest Hits focuses extensively on three blockbuster albums the band released during the 1980s: 1984’s Slide It In (2x platinum), 1987’s Whitesnake (8x platinum), and 1989’s Slip of the Tongue (platinum). But the collection goes deeper with songs like “Sweet Lady Luck,” a b-side on the 12” single for “The Deeper The Love,” and “Forevermore,” the title track from the band’s 2011 album.

Whitesnake will embark upon a farewell tour in May with special guest, Europe. The first leg of “Whitesnake: The Farewell Tour” will start on May 10 in Dublin. Coverdale said: “I pray every day we can all make this happen & once again, share unforgettable evenings together & celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!!!”»
