Patti Smith – Because the night (Leaping Ahead #90)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #90: 160330

[A song for soulmates]

From the ‘Easter’ album, this song, released in 1978, became our soulmate song, was the song we danced to at our wedding in July 1979 and remains a firm favourite 38 years later. We still have both copies of the 45 (‘Godspeed’ on the B side) we brought each other at the time. The song brings a smile every time – cos it’s definitely our song.
