Arnie Treffers, beter bekend als Long Tall Ernie, behaalde met de band The Shakers eind jaren zeventig zijn grootste successen met nummers als Do You Remember en Golden Years Of Rock 'n Roll, die potpourri's van rock-'n-rollstukken waren.

Al in 1964 heeft hij als Big Ernie een single "Charlie Brown" opgenomen en in 1965 twee nummers van een ep. Daarna heeft Arnie nog singles opgenomen onder de volgende namen: C.S. '65; Limited '65; Spijkerkwartet (1970-1973); Palace (1971); Arnhem (1972-1973); Pontiacs (1973); Arnie (1974); Block (1982).

In 1971 speelde de groep Moan in het voorprogramma van Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers met dezelfde bezetting. In 1973 had Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers zoveel succes, dat Moan opgeheven werd. Met Moan had Arnie overigens wel zijn eerste Top 40-hit: Health of freedom kwam in 1971 tot nummer 27. Met Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers had hij 10 hits, waaronder de nummer 1-hit Do you remember in 1977. Dit nummer kwam in Duitsland ook nog tot een 20e plaats.

Songtekst

It's alright, it's alright
Makin' love in the middle of the night
It's alright, it's alright
Makin' love in the middle of the night

AC/DC, I advertise
No-one answers to my surprise
Paperbag stoovies and make a scene
But our love come in between

Someone wants me too this time
Bring me sudden for a 2-0-9
Drinking nights, you'll find me there
And that's fair

It's alright, it's alright
Makin' love in the middle of the night
It's alright, it's alright
Makin' love in the middle of the night

See a lady over in my life
Just got a great one fantasy for love
If I quince you, rage and squeals
It's so fast like it's real

Takes me over to the second floor
Spins right down and locks the door
Says there's no need to leave tonight
Tonight

It's alright, it's alright
Makin' love in the middle of the night
It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night

It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night

Takes me over to the second floor
Spins right down and locks the door
Says there's no need to leave tonight
Tonight

It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night
It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night

It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night
It's alright (It's alright), it's alright (It's alright)
Makin' love in the middle of the night
