Such a Night
Elvis Presley Lyrics


It was a night oh oh what a night
It was it really was such a night
The moon was bright oh how so bright
It was it really was such a night
The night was alight with stars above
Oh oh when she kissed me
I had to fall in love
Oh it was a kiss oh oh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Oh how she could kiss oh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Just the thought of her lips
Sets me afire
I reminisce and I'm filled with desire
But I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember
Oh, what a night oh oh what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
Oh oh such a kiss, such a night
It was a night oh oh what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
How well I remember, I'll always remember
That night oh oh what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
But I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember
Oh that night oh oh what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
Well she's gone, gone, gone
Yes she's gone, gone, gone
Came the dawn, dawn, dawn
And my love was gone
But before that dawn
Yes before that dawn and before that dawn
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Such a night

You don’t realize how complex this vocal is until you try to sing it.
In the verses, like at 0:31 - that phrasing and rhythm is not easy. He’s timing each note perfectly so that his vocal actually has its own rhythm and melody. And while he’s doing it, he’s switching back and forth between his middle and lower registers.

Then at 0:35 he changes from chest voice to head voice for that light sound. Switching from the lowest part of your range to the highest, that fast, is not easy. You need very good control.

Then for the choruses he completely changes his voice to a more gritty rock sound. Again, that is not easy, because you have to use a completely different technique.
That note at 0:52 is also really high, especially for someone with a deeper voice, like Elvis.

Then at 1:01 he uses a vocal fry for the low notes and goes back to that original full sound.
Then at 1:13 he changes his voice to sound similar to an opera singer. Then goes back to the original sound.

In the 3 minutes this song lasts, he uses every part of his range, makes constant changes to the texture of his voice, uses different vocal techniques, different rhythms, different phrasings, uses vocal fry, chest voice, head voice, intentional off-pitch notes ... and he’s doing all those things throughout the entire song.

"Such A Night"

It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
The moon was bright oh how so bright
It was it really was such a night
The night was alight with stars above
Oo-oo when she kissed me
I had to fall in love

Oh it was a kiss oo-oo what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Oh how she could kiss oh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Just the thought of her lips
Sets me afire
I reminisce and I'm filled with desire
But I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember

Oh, what a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
Oo-oo such a kiss, such a night

It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and her love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget the kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
How well I remember, I'll always remember

That night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
But I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember

Oh that night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
When we kissed I had to fall in love
Well she's gone, gone, gone
Yes she's gone, gone, gone
Came the dawn, dawn, dawn
And my love was gone
But before that dawn
Yes before that dawn and before that dawn
Oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo
Such a night

@Fernando Villaseñor Gracias, Hermano.

Chris, muy buen comentario, y casi en todas sus canciones se podría ver el mismo tipo de técnica, ya que es natural su técnica, así lo hizo siempre, saludos

This master was actually made up from spliced parts from 2 different takes. Take 4 (roughly the 2nd half of the song), and the 1st half of the song from take 5. Takes 1 to 4 are here, take 5 is missing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_LKcl2DNUE
