Song of the day: The Moody Blues- Nights In White Satin

the moody blues nights in white satin

One of the all time sixties classics today, written by Justin Hayward in 1967. He wrote it after he got some satin bedsheets from his girlfriend. The song was recorded by the Moody Blues, and it was featured in three different lengths: the album version of 7 and a half minutes, and two different single edits, one of 3 minutes and one of 4 and a half minutes. That means the song was released twice, and that’s true: the first time, in 1967, it charted number 19 in the UK. The second time, in 1972, made it to number one in the UK and number two in the US. Today we enjoy the album version:
