Song of the Day Feb 18

February 18, 2024

This month I’m focusing on Love Songs from the 70s.

Today our song is:  Sharing the Night Together

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

Sharing the Night Together" is a popular song written by Ava Aldridge and Eddie Struzick. Originally recorded by Lenny LeBlanc and then Arthur Alexander in 1976, the song was later a single produced by Ron Haffkine and performed by rock band Dr. Hook from their album Pleasure and Pain. Cash Box called Alexander's version "a languorous ballad plaintive, that should strike deep in the hearts of R&B, pop and MOR listeners" and praised Alexander's "powerful voice" and how he "sings this love song with special emotion." "Sharing the Night Together" also appeared on most of Dr. Hook's following albums including Greatest Hits and Greatest Hits (and More). It reached No. 6 in the U.S. and No. 3 in Canada in 1978, and No. 43 in the UK in 1980.
