All Through the Night

Remember when I blogged about all those Raspberries songs with "night" in the lyrics? Well, it was recently posted on ericcarmen.com and there were a few responses. Now, not to be a jerk, but I thought it would be fun to respond to some of the comments. I take it most of these comments were lighthearted, so I hope my responses come across as lighthearted.

The guy obviously never heard "Sunrise"!

Nope. Never heard that song. All I have is Overnight Sensation: The Very Best of the Raspberries and "Sunrise" is not on it. Again, I just couldn't help notice that the first half of that greatest hits collection features "night," "tonight," or "overnight" in the lyrics.

Obviously this guy doesn't get that "nights" are much more romantic than mornings and afternoons. Elvis' "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" would sound silly as "Are you Lonesome This Morning?" "Nights in White Satin" would sound pretty silly as "Afternoons in White Satin."

I don't understand romance, period. Day or night. Oops, the secret's out!

Maybe this guy's favorite song is "It's Four O'Clock in the Morning" or "Cruising Down The River on a Sunday Afternoon."

Actually, it's "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head." I've never heard "It's Four O'Clock in the Morning" or "Cruising Down the River on a Sunday Afternoon."
