‘This Night Won’t Last Forever’ by Michael Johnson – Classic or Miss

“This Night Won’t Last Forever” is the title of a song written by Bill LaBounty and originally recorded by him. LaBounty’s version of the song was a minor Adult Contemporary and pop hit, reaching #65 on the Billboard Hot 100. One year later, Michael Johnson covered the song and took it to #19 on the same chart.Teaming up with Brent Maher and Steve Gibson in Nashville, Tennessee, Johnson created a two-song demo consisting of “Bluer Than Blue” and “Almost Like Being in Love” (the latter song from the Broadway musical Brigadoon). EMI America took one listen and wasted no time in signing him, quickly getting The Michael Johnson Album out in 1978. The first single, “Bluer Than Blue”, became Johnson’s first Top 40 hit, peaking at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the summer of 1978; the song became a chart-topping single on the Adult Contemporary chart. “Almost Like Being in Love” went to No. 91 on the R&B chart while hitting the Top 5 on the AC chart and the Top 40 on the pop chart. His next EMI album, Dialogue, provided his third big hit, “This Night Won’t Last Forever”.
