"Of the Night" as written by Thea Austin, Francesco Bontempi, Michael Gaffey, Peter Glenister, Annerley Gordon, Giorgio Spagna, Benito Benites and John Virgo Iii Garrett....
Rhythm is a dancer,
It's a souls companion,
People feel it everywhere,
Lift your hands and voices,
Free your mind and join us,
You can feel it in the air,
Oh woah
It's a passion
Oh oh
You can feel it yeah
Oh oh
It's a passion,
Oh oh, oh, oh, oh,

(This is the rhythm)

You can put some joy up on my face,
Oh sunshine in an empty place,
Take me too, turn to and babe I'll make you stay,
(Oh yeah)
Oh I can ease you of your pain,
Feel you give me love again,
Round and round we go,
Each time I hear you say,

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of the night,
This is the rhythm of my life,
My life,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of my life,

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of the night,
This is the rhythm of my life,
My life,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of my life,

Wont you teach me how to love and learn,
There'll be nothing left for me to yearn,
Think of me and burn and let me hold your hand
Oh yeah-ah-eh,
I don't want to face the world in tears,
Please think again, I'm on my knees,
Sing that song to me, no reason to repent

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of the night,
This is the rhythm of my life,
My life,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of my life,

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of the night,
This is the rhythm of my life,
My life,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of my life,

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of the night,
This is the rhythm of my life,
My life,
Oh yeah,
The rhythm of my life,

This is the rhythm of the night,
The night,
Oh yeah.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a man who is trying to feel the love from someone who won't give him it. I imagine it as the person he loves is on drugs/parties all the time/has depression, and the only time she'll be close to him, and show him love, is when she's listening to music, because A. If it's drugs, then when she's listening to music she imagines that everybody is connected through the beat and she feels more open with him because of the connection. B. When she's partying and is drunk, his normally introverted lover becomes more open with her feelings. Or C. Music is escapism from the depression, and through the escapism she can forget all the bad things and just focus on the happier thoughts.

    Either way, I see it as the music is something that helps her open up and give him the love he's looking for. I don't think it's a happy song, purely because of

    "Won't you teach me how to love and learn? There'll be nothing left for me to yearn. Think of me and burn and let me hold your hand. I don't want to face the world in tears. Please think again I'm on my knees." because he is literally begging her to give him love, to show him some type of affection.

    General CommentThis song is a remake of two songs from the 90s, 'Rhythm of the Night' by Corona and ' Rhythm is a Dancer' by Snap!

    My InterpretationThis song is really difficult to decipher. There's no key words that contribute to the meaning. I believe it's about two friends learning to love each other, but finding it hard because they don't want to ruin their non-romantic relationship.

    My InterpretationThe song is about acceptance. On the surface it's someone pleading to another for acceptance. But on a deeper and darker level, as the video seems to imply, it's probably a message about accepting that the world can sometimes be a depressing and disturbing place.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a man who's wife had died so now he's a widow. The man is a detective and the murderer has killed others. The murderer is the rhythm of the night.

    My InterpretationI think this song isn't necessarily about two people. I think the artist is singing about fate aka: (the rhythm of the night). He's talking about the rhythm of his life, which I think of as how someone lives their life. In the music video, it shows people singing the song from where the have died.(It was kind of creepy.) Each of them have their own story but sing the same song.
