The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about night. Some songs are about Saturday night and the spirit of letting loose, while others may use the night as a metaphor for something else. Do you have a favorite nighttime song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about the night. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good night songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a night song playlist.

Some of the songs below include End of the Night by The Doors, You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, and Prove It All Night by Bruce Springsteen. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has night in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about the night, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
