"Still of the Night" (also known as "In The Still of the Night") is a single released by Whitesnake, from their hugely successful self titled 1987 album. It reached #16 in the U.K. and #18 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks when it was released on March 9, 1987. In 2009 it was named the 27th best hard rock song of all time by VH1. The song was written by lead singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes, and proved to be one of the band's most popular songs. It combines the blues origins of the band with the more distorted, harder sound driving the song, making for a powerful hard rock song. The current Whitesnake lineup and John Sykes both play the song as their live encore. The song has been cited as sounding similar to Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog", a possible source of inspiration for Coverdale and Sykes. A music video, featuring Coverdale's then future wife Tawny Kitaen, was shot for the song, and it was MTV's most requested video in its first week of release. A cover version of the song is featured in the video game Rock Revolution.


Whitesnake are an English hard rock band, founded in 1978 by vocalist David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple) in North Yorkshire, UK. The current line-up of the band also include Joel Hoekstra (lead guitar), Reb Beach (rhythm guitar), Michael Devin (bass), Brian Ruedy (keyboards) and Tommy Aldridge (drums). While the group's membership has fluctuated, Coverdale remains the heart and soul of the band. In their early years, Whitesnake played in a hard-edged blues rock and heavy metal influenced style.

Still of the Night - Whitesnake

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store,
My heart starts aching
My body started shaking
And I can't take no more, no, no

Now I just wanna get close to you
And taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat...

In the Still of the Night...
In the Still of the Night...
Over here baby...

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come, ooh, baby

In the Still of the Night,
In the cool moonlight,
I feel my heart is aching
In the Still of the Night...

Oooh Baby, Oooh baby

Solo

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door...
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more...
Oooh, mama

Now I just wanna get close to you
And taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat.

In the Still of the Night...
In the Still of the Night...
In the Still of the Night...
In the Still of the Night...

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night...

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night...

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night...

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night...
