Songinfo

Summer Night City is geschreven door Björn Ulvaeus en Benny Andersson, tevens de twee mannelijke zangers. Het is ABBA's tweede single die niet op een album is terug te vinden. Oorspronkelijk zou het de eerste single van hun nieuwe album Voulez-Vous worden, maar het nummer werd hier uiteindelijk niet opgezet. De B-kant van de single is een medley van de nummers "Pick a Bale of Cotton", "On Top of Old Smokey" en "Midnight Special". Alle drie traditionele Amerikaanse nummer, opgenomen door de groep in 1975. Deze nummers zijn de enige uitgebrachte ABBA nummers die de leden niet zelf hebben geschreven.

Songtekst

In the night a new day dawning
And the first birds start to sing
In the pale light of the morning
Nothing's worth remembering
It's a dream, it's out of reach
Scattered driftwood on the beach

Summer night city...
Summer night city...

Waiting for the sunrise, soul dancing in the dark
Summer night city
Walking in the moonlight, love-making in a park
Summer night city

In the sun I feel like sleeping
I can't take it for too long
My impatience slowly creeping
Up my spine and growing strong
I know what's waiting there for me
Tonight I'm loose and fancy-free
Aa-ahhh

When the night comes with the action
I just know it's time to go
Can't resist the strange attraction
From that giant dynamo
Lots to take and lots to give
Time to breathe and time to live

Waiting for the sunrise, soul dancing in the dark
Summer night city
Walking in the moonlight, love-making in a park
Summer night city

It's elusive call it glitter
Somehow something turns me on
Some folks only see the litter
We don't miss them when they're gone
I love the feeling in the air
My kind of people everywhere

When the night comes with the action
I just know it's time to go
Can't resist the strange attraction
From that giant dynamo
And tomorrow, when the dawning
And the first birds start to sing
In the pale light of the morning
Nothing's worth remembering
It's a dream, it's out of reach
Scattered driftwood on the beach

Waiting for the sunrise, soul dancing in the dark
Summer night city
Walking in the moonlight, love-making in a park
Summer night city
