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."

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.

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
