One More Night – Phil Collins

Phil Collins No Jacket Required Album CoverThis week back in 1985, One More Night by Phil Collins was the number 1 song on the Billboard charts. It knocked REO Speedwagon’s Can’t Fight This Feeling off the number one position and stayed there for two weeks until it was knocked off by We Are The World. It reached number two on the Australia charts.

The story goes that Phil Collins was messing around with beats on a drum machine when he came up with the idea for the chorus. The rest of the same developed rather quickly after that.

I was never a massive Phil Collins fan, but I did love In The Air Tonight, especially the bit where the real drums come in. I’ve grown to like One More Night – it’s a well written song and it’s not over-produced.

Did you know that the clip was mostly recorded in a pub owned by Richard Branson?

One More Night Lyrics

One more night, one more night
I’ve been trying ooh so long to let you know
Let you know how I feel
And if I stumble if I fall, just help me back
So I can make you see

Please give me one more night, give me one more night
One more night cos I can’t wait forever
Give me just one more night, oh just one more night
Oh one more night cos I can’t wait forever

I’ve been sitting here so long
Wasting time, just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought maybe you’re not alone

Please give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Please give me one more night, ooh just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever

Like a river to the sea
I will always be with you
And if you sail away
I will follow you

Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
I know there’ll never be a time you’ll ever feel the same
And I know it’s only words
But if you change your mind you know that I’ll be here
And maybe we both can learn

Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
