  • Night, here comes the night
    Another night to dream about you
    Night, each lonely night
    The only time I'm not without you

    Once more, I feel your kisses
    Once more, I know what bliss is
    Comes dawn, my darling, you're gone
    But you come back into my arms each night

    Once more, I feel your kisses
    Once more, I know what bliss is
    Comes dawn, my darling, you're gone
    But you come back into my arms each night Writer/s: JOHANNA HALL, JOHANNA D HALL, JOHN HALL, JON HALL

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 5 1960, 'The Big Beat' touring show, which was a Alan Freed production, played at the State Theater in Hartford, Connecticut; Jackie Wilson was the show's headliner...
    Later in March "Night" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart {See the below posts}...
    Exactly three years earlier on March 5th, 1957 Alan Freed tried to fool the panel on the CBS-TV game show 'To Tell The Truth'.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 31st 1963, Jackie Wilson performed "Baby Work Out" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'*...
    At the time the song was at #6 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; exactly one week later on April 7th, 1963 it would peak at #5 {for 3 weeks} and spent 12 weeks on the Top 100...
    Then on May 5th, 1963 it reached #1 {for 3 weeks} on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
    And on the same 'Sullivan' show he also performed "Night" {See next post below}...
    * It was Mr. Wilson's four appearance on the 'Sullivan' show.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 12th 1960, Jackie Wilson performed "Night" on the ABC-TV program 'Dick Clark's Saturday Night Beechnut Show'...
    And nine days later on March 21st, 1960 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #90, seven weeks later on May 9th, 1960 it peaked at #4 {for 2 weeks} and spent 17 weeks on the Top 100...
    The very week "Night" peaked at #4 on the Top 100, the record's B-side, "Doggin' Around", was at #15 on the chart, and that was its peak position on the Top 100...
    But on Billboard's R&B Singles chart the record did a flip-flop; on May 16th, 1960 "Doggin' Around" peaked at #1 {for 3 weeks} while "Night" reached #3 on the chart...
    Between 1957 and 1975 he had forty-three records on the R&B Singles chart; seventeen made the Top 10 with six peaking at #1, the other five were "Lonely Teardrops" {1958}, "You Better Know It" {1959}, "A Woman, a Lover, a Friend" {1960}, "Baby Workout" {1963}, and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher" {1967}...
    Jackie Wilson passed away on January 21st, 1984 at the young age of 49...
    May he R.I.P.
