Europe - Rock the Night


Europe - Rock The Night - Meaning of the song


Europe was on the verge of international stardom when lead singer Joey Tempest wrote this song in 1985. The band had been signed to Epic Records after releasing two albums on a local Swedish label. They embarked on a tour of Sweden, and were starting to feel the anticipation and excitement. This song came out of those time.


"It was just describing the feeling of having fun and the touring life."

The band served as their own producer when they recorded the original version of this song, which was released as a single in Sweden in 1985. They re-recorded it with producer Kevin Elson (known for his work with Journey) for The Final Countdown album. In America and the UK, it was the band's second single, following "The Final Countdown."

Rock The Night - Lyrics

I've gone through changes I've gone through pain But there's not enough reason for me to go insane I know the feeling, just when it grows I'm in a rage up from my head down to my toes You know it ain't easy Running out of thrills You know it ain't easy When you don't know what you want What do you want? You want to Rock now, rock the night 'Til early in the morning light Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night You'd better believe it's right Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa I know my limit Just what it takes When things ain't good enough I just pull the brake Sometimes it's easy Sometimes so tough But just have one thing clear I can't get enough You know it ain't easy Running out of thrills You know it ain't easy When you don't know what you want What do you want? You want to rock now, rock the night 'Til early in the morning light Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night You'd better believe it's right Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night Rock now, rock the night Rock now, rock the night Rock now, rock the night Rock it You know it ain't easy Running out of thrills You know it ain't easy When you don't know what you want What do you want? You want to rock now, rock the night 'Til early in the morning light Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night You'd better believe it's right Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night 'Til early in the morning light Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa Rock now, rock the night You'd better believe it's right Rock now, rock the night Whoa, whoa
