Midnight Confessions

by

The Grass Roots



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

The "Midnight Confessions" in this song are the secrets the singer will not reveal to the girl he loves. He's a bit obsessed with her, and while he thinks about her all the time, he's tormented because he can't have her. After all, she's married.
This was written by Lou Josie, a songwriter and guitarist from Ohio whose credits include "Hey Harmonica Man" by Stevie Wonder, "Soul Finger" by the Bar-Kays and "We Can Make Music" by Tommy Roe.
This was the biggest hit for The Grass Roots. They also hit the US Top 10 with "Sooner Or Later" and "Let's Live For Today."

If you watch the video its actually 2 lead singers.
- STEVE, METHUEN, MA
I prefer "The River Is Wide". It is not listed. It does not get any air play on the oldies stations.
- Dion, Commerce, TX
Just another song about unrequited love ala "My Cherie Amour" and "Just My Imagination" where the object of the singers affection probably doesn't knows that they exist.
- Martin, Los Angeles, CA
there's a very memorable part of the movie Jackie Brown where Bridget Fonda annoys Robert De Niro by singing this.
- Dylan, Dodge City, KS
Oh I adore this song. The lead singers voice is amazing!
- Theresa, Murfreesboro, TN
Why is it a shame that this is their biggest hit? It is without a doubt one of the top ten greatest songs of the sixties!
- Joe, Chicago, IL
Structurally, a nearly perfect pop/rock song, aespecially the horns. Always have loved it and never tired of it.
- Chet, Buffalo, NY
I absolutely love this song, especially the breakdown near the end with the sound of a jewelry box. It's a shame that this was their biggest hit.
- Tanya, La Verne, CA
You have to to post comments.

Into the vaults for this talk with Bolton from the '80s when he was a focused on writing songs for other artists.
Marc Campbell - "88 Lines About 44 Women"Marc Campbell - "88 Lines About 44 Women"
The Nails lead singer Marc Campbell talks about those 44 women he sings about over a stock Casio keyboard track. He's married to one of them now - you might be surprised which.
Don FelderDon Felder
Don breaks down "Hotel California" and other songs he wrote as a member of the Eagles. Now we know where the "warm smell of colitas" came from.
Allen Toussaint - "Southern Nights"Allen Toussaint - "Southern Nights"
A song he wrote and recorded from "sheer spiritual inspiration," Allen's didn't think "Southern Nights" had hit potential until Glen Campbell took it to #1 two years later.
