100 best songs with night in the title

Metaphors always find their way into songs, but there are a few that seem to be ubiquitous. Night, as a metaphor, has found its way into more song titles than you can count. In fact, it's possible to create a list of songs with night in the title for each genre. Most songs use it figuratively, often depicting a dark moment in life. Others use it literally, like what to do on a fun Saturday night.

Deciding what songs to include in this list was a little challenging, mainly because of the sheer number of great "night" songs. Still, I had an enjoyable time curating these songs, and I hope you'll have fun as well. Allow me to shed light on some of the best songs with the word night in the title.
