Jennifer Warnes had a long association with Leonard Cohen. She started working for him as a backing singer in 1972, and in 1986 recorded an album of his songs called Famous Blue Raincoat
, which gave Cohen a huge bump in the United States, where he was little known. The songs she worked on with Cohen are very meaningful to her, unlike "Right Time Of The Night," which was foisted on her by Clive Davis. In a Songfacts interview with Warnes
, she was asked if she could talk about the song. Her reply: "No."
