No More Lonely Nights

Paul McCartney singing "No More Lonely Nights" in "Give My Regards to Broad Street."



"No More Lonely Nights" was a single taken from Paul McCartney's "Give My Regards to Broad Street" Columbia album, released on 24 September 1984. The single was successful, peaking at No. 6 in the United States and No. 2 in the United Kingdom. The film "Give My Regards to Broad Street" was considered a failure, but the soundtrack album hit No. 1 on the UK chart, no doubt helped greatly by the success of "No More Lonely Nights," which won both Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations.

"No More Lonely Nights" was recorded while Paul was without a regular backing band. Thus, he formed ad hoc associations for specific projects. The lineup for "No More Lonely Nights" was:
  • Paul McCartney – lead vocal, piano
  • Linda McCartney – backing vocal, keyboards
  • Eric Stewart – backing vocal
  • David Gilmour – guitar
  • Herbie Flowers – bass
  • Anne Dudley – synthesizer
  • Stuart Elliott – drums
The final track recorded for "Broad Street," "No More Lonely Nights" was notable for the large number of formats in which it was released. These included:
  • Two different 7" singles (different mixes)
  • Two different 12" singles (different mixes)
  • 12" picture disc
George Martin produced the "ballad" version of "No More Lonely Nights," while Arthur Baker produced the "playout" version. There are 12 official versions - and perhaps more by the time you read this.

For truly obsessive Paul McCartney fans, "No More Lonely Nights" is part of Paul's extensive "Paul making tea" video oeuvre which has been seen also in his videos for "Dance Tonight" and "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey," among others.
