And we danced all night to a soul fairy band and she kissed me just right like only a lonely angel can She felt so nice, just as soft as a spirit in the night all night In the night all night. Janey don't know what she do to you Like a spirit in the night all night , in the night all night Stand right up and let her shoot through me.
A cover version titled Spirits in the Night spirit being plural , performed by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, was released on the album Nightingales and Bombers and as a Top 40 single.
It was one of the last songs to be written and recorded for the release. Springsteen had recorded 10 other tracks for the album, but Clive Davis, president of the record label that was releasing the album, was concerned that the recorded tracks did not have enough commercial appeal.
As a result, Springsteen quickly wrote and recorded two additional songs: "Spirit in the Night" and "Blinded by the Light". Because these songs were added so late in the recording process, several of Springsteen's band members were unavailable to record these two songs.
As a result, the recording lineup for "Spirit in the Night" was limited to Vini Lopez on drums, Clarence Clemons on saxophone, and Springsteen himself playing all other instruments.Just as soft as a spirit in the night (all night), in the night (all night) Janey don't know what she do to you Spirit in the night (all night), in the night (all night) Stand right up and let her shoot through me Now, the night was bright and the stars threw light On Billy and Davy dancin' in the moonlight.
