For me this song goes way past it’s lovey afflicted message of thinking about the same person every time you dream. When I listen to it I visualize going back and playing Super Mario Bros on N64 or… my mom getting ready to go out to Aquarius; and supposedly they used to play this song in there and it was nuts. If I was her age then and wasn’t an introvert and actually went out once in awhile, I’d probably go to a dance club like that and groove it out.
This jam would actually give me the confidence to walk up to a girl, probably. I’m saying if it was a 90s night (if they have those), then yea, I probably would.

Some of you probably feel the same. So I write about the Real McCoy![/dropshadowbox]
Now this is a jam for generations not even born yet.
Dave Matthew’s lyrics “23 and so tired of life, such a shame to throw it all away..” from ‘Dancing Nancies’ may as well ring true. But the one passion I’m steadfast in is mulling over that golden brick in the 90s wall that creeps into the temporal lobe (memory?).
It’s Appeal is Almost Timeless
Almost? I think it will be considered timeless when it reaches 50 years of age and people still listen to it in large numbers like they do Bing Crosby or Elvis.
The Real McCoy did so good with this song. ‘Another Night’ belongs in the category of the top 15 90s songs– any genre. Will people give it the benefit of the doubt?
If I never heard it until today, I would think it was from the 90s decade, because of it’s sound.

(Still one of my favorite songs- any decade).[/dropshadowbox]
If I had to compare this song to another one of comparable nature, I’d go with “Be My Lover” by La Bouche. Both have that midnight/club feel. And, both were made in 1995. Relation, or coincidence?
One more thing, I noticed this song pulls off the piano quite well. It even opens up with it. I usually don’t like piano dabbling behind the scenes, but…
If more thoughts come to mind about this mega hit of a song, I will be sure to add to the article in the future. Please leave your comments below if this song strikes a cord with you also, because it is really timeless, and maybe even a bit underrated.
