I f I were to compile a list of the world’s greatest songs (just to infuriate people with my presumption), I’d have “Nights In White Satin” somewhere near the top of the list. The single version I have (45-DEM-85023) matches the original elpee version minus the orchestral ending, so it clocks in around four-and-a-half minutes and not the 3:06 listed on the label. Honestly, I’m surprised how often the track times are just flat-out wrong. Apparently, no one ever checks them. The flip side is “Cities,” a nonalbum track written by Justin Hayward that shows the influence of The Beatles (after Rubber Soul) and/or perhaps Graham Gouldman’s minor-key melodies (“No Milk Today”). It’s short (at a correct two-and-a-half minutes) but well worth hearing, which is probably why the song has shown up on several Moodies compilations.
