Paul McCartney – No More Lonely Nights

In the eighties when I heard this song, I knew it was better than “So Bad” his last release at that time. This single was a very good pop song by Paul. I also knew when I heard it, that the guitar solo had a familiar sound to it. David Gilmour of Pink Floyd played the guitar solo on this track. He requested that his session fee be given to a charity of Paul’s choice.

The song peaked at #6 in the Billboard 100, #11 in Canada, and #2 in the UK in 1984. The song was recorded for the soundtrack¬†Give My Regards to Broad Street. It’s a very good pop song by Paul. Herbie Flowers plays bass on this track also.

This was the first single from the soundtrack album to the movie Give My Regards To Broad Street; the music video for it shows clips from the movie mixed in with new footage from the same locations used in the movie. A dance remix of the song appears during the end credits of the movie and on the soundtrack.

The filming of the music video continued unto late hours of the night, the noise from the fireworks reportedly caused locals to complain to the police who said, “I’m sorry, but Mr. McCartney is simply doing some filming.”

No More Lonely Nights

I can wait another day until I call you
You’ve only got my heart on a string and everything a-flutter
But another lonely night might take forever
We’ve only got each other to blame
It’s all the same to me love
‘Cause I know what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights
No more lonely nights
You’re my guiding light
Day or night I’m always there

May I never miss the thrill of being near you
And if takes a couple of years
To turn your tears to laughter
I will do what I feel to be right

No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You’re my guiding light
Day or night I’m always there
And I won’t go away until you tell me so
No, I’ll never go away

Yes, I know (I know) what I feel (I feel) to be right
No more lonely nights (Never be another)
No more lonely nights
You’re my guiding light
Day or night I’m always there

And I won’t go away until you tell me so
No, I’ll never go away
And I won’t go away until you tell me so
No, I’ll never go away

No more lonely nights, no, no
