We Belong To The Night
by UFO

Songfacts®:

  • This UFO track is not the first song called "We Belong To The Night" but is probably the most uptempo, and definitely one of the best.

    Running to 3 minutes 57 seconds, it kicks off side two of the Mechanix album, and was co-written by the time-serving Phil Mogg and Pete Way with new boy Neil Carter, the latter of whom told this website in March 2011, that the song is about "…'generalisms' and I don't think refer[s] to anything/anyone in particular. Phil was always interested in the night hours and wrote quite a few lyrics in this vein." >>
