MUSIC MONDAYS #4 … HERE COMES THE NIGHT

250px-Them_(band)THEM in 1965 – from Belfast, Northern Ireland

Here Comes the Night” was THEM‘s third single in both the UK and the US; the US release following the success of “Gloria” in that market.
Here Comes The Night (lyrics) was written and produced by American producer Bert Berns in 1964. His earlier credits included Hang on Sloopy, Twist and Shout and Under The Boardwalk.  Here Comes the Night was recorded by THEM in March 1965, charting at No. 2 in the UK and No. 24 in the US.

THEM has had some very notable members throughout its history…

  • Van Morrison – lead singer through October 1966
  • Jimmy Page – plays guitar on the studio recording of Here Comes The Night
  • Ry Cooder – played guitar with THEM in studio sessions 1969

After Here Comes The Night was released, Them was immediately sent on a public relations push with television appearances on Ready Steady Go! and Top of the Pops.
Van Morrison has remarked on this:

“Them were never meant to be on Top of the Pops, I mean miming? Lip syncing? We used to laugh at the programme, think it was a joke. Then we were on it ourselves. It was ridiculous. We were totally anti that type of thing. We were really into the blues…and we had to get into suits and have make-up put on and all that..”
