Carly Simon - In The Still Of The Night Lyrics

In the still of the night
I-I held you, held you tight
'Cause I love, love you so
Promise I'll never let you go
In the still of the night (in the still of the night)

I remember (I remember) that night in May (I remember)
The stars (I remember) were bright a-a-bo-o-o-ove (I remember)
I'll hope (I remember) and I'll pray (I remember)
To keep .. your prec..ious lo-o-o-o-o-ove

Well before the li-ight
Hold me again
With all of your might
In the still of the night (in the still of the night)

So before the li-ight
Hold me again
With all of your might
In the still of the night (in the still of the night)

In the still of the night

    Today I watched a programme in which four young singers performed this song in Roselyn Chapel. Their voices were ethereal in one of the most stunning arrangements I'd ever heard. They certainly made you realise that it was "the still of the night".

    As a result, I have spent an enjoyable hour or so listening to other versions. Though good, many were more like 4:30 on a wet afternoon..."let's cheer everyone up with a jolly sing-a-long". This, on the other hand, makes me feel the chill of a dark, moonlit night, the window open, the moon drifting slowly across the sky. Ms Simon's voice suggests a fire crackling in the room, a drink to hand (gin and tonic for me), and the confusion of an uncertain love. She is not singing the words, it's as if she is living the words, but what should I expect from the inimitable Carly Simon?

    This is the best version that I've found, even pushing the divine Ella Fitzgerald into a somewhat distant 2nd place. Wonderful!

    Carly's vocal quality is in a class by itself. What a magnificent rendition of Cole Porter's classic. Beautiful arrangement, perfect interpretation, and the perfection of Carly's tonal quality, timing and unmistakable sound she possesses makes this song just as fresh and new, as if it were written yesterday. What a talented woman. Love you, Carly, and all the beautiful music you have brought us throughout the years.

    The arranger did this classic justice.... Masterfully crafted

  5. Joan Hall Hovey

    This is a less romantic and sentimental generation ~

    This classic music is performed very well by Carly Simon. You can't beat this classic music from the big band era. Carly's smooth velvet voice was made for these songs. You never get tired of listening to her singing these songs from yester year. I wish young people liked music like this today.

  7. Kmr Petchr

    So excellent Carly Simon does

  8. Luiz Antonio Sacconi

    Bela interpretação dessa que é uma das canções mais lindas que Cole Porter compôs..

  9. Tom Degan

  24. Skip Davis

    I first this number on a 1950's LP of Dick Leibert playing the 4-17 WurliTzer Theatre Organ at the Byrd Theater in Richmond, Virginia, and fell in love with it (both the organ and the song). Carly Simon's version hits the nail on the head. Beautiful.

  25. Radner Bearman

  28. William Bristow

    You were right the first time, the music today is crap. Crap and Rap, synonymous.

    Richard Scally

    I couldn't agree more, these gastley Celebrated Talentless so called Stars of today, just an irritating Shrill on the ear.

  36. Nobody YouKnow

    wasn't worth 30 seconds !

  37. loricashe CASHE

    This rendition of one of my favorite Cole Porter songs is absolutely SUPERB! Carly Simon nailed this classic with her usual stroke of sultry, smooth vocal quality. Fantastic! Porter and Simon equals absolute perfection. Tonal quality of Carly is in a class by herself. And that is truly a complement for a vocalist. I LOVE THIS SONG AND CARLY'S INTERPRETATION OF IT. BEAUTIFUL!!!

  38. hal lyons

    What a great voice singing an old favorite.

  39. Roberta Telles

  41. Virginia Barreras

    Thank You!

  42. Grace Perez

    feeling ssssssssssssssbello


    Grace, it 'feels' like a soft caress. Carly is perfect for the song and gives meaning for all of us to share. Feeling is great.



  44. Kari Helopaltio

    Sorry Ella, but Carly nails it ! A Cole Porter song.


    Wish Ella had a modern awesome would that be?

  45. Sheila Franschman

    to everyone who remembers what real music sounds like  
    don't hear it much these days  
    gotta go back to the past when songs with words sent a message of love
    not this crap today, did I say crap, I meant rap


    @Sheila Franschman - We agree totally

    L. Chandler

    Some times I think I was born in the wrong era. The sixties were nice, but love the songs from the 30s, 40s, & 50s. The lyrics & music was so moving and created a mood. My father taught me to appreciate music like this: love the "American Song Book" music. Carly does a rendition of my "My Foolish Heart" that is great!
