Late at night - Maywood

The Dutch duo Maywood had several hits in the Netherlands, but none of them was as big as 'Late at night'. This single reached number 1 in the Dutch Top 40 in the summer of 1980. There were actually many sultry nights during that summer when my sister, who owned a copy of this single, played this song, and I will forever associate this song with hot summers for that reason.

One of the most fascinating features of this song are the vocals. Someone in the studio must not have been paying attention: you constantly hear 'Late at nighT / Early in the morning lighT'.

My collection: 7" single no. 961
Found: All that music, Leiden, August 10, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Late at night' / 'One, two, three'
