"Isn't It Midnight" is a single by Fleetwood Mac, taken from their 1987 album Tango in the Night. The song was co-written and sung by Christine McVie and was the final track to be released from the album in some territories in 1988.

In the United Kingdom, "Isn't It Midnight" was released as the follow-up to "Everywhere" and it charted at its peak position of #60 on 18 June 1988. It performed better in Ireland, where it reached the Top 30, peaking at #23.

This was the second official Fleetwood Mac song to be released on the 3" CD single format as well being issued on 7" and 12" vinyl. All formats contained the Tango in the Night track "Mystified", and the CD and 12" included the bonus tracks "Say You Love Me" (from 1975; it had previously been included as a bonus track on the "Everywhere" CD single) and "Gypsy" (from the 1982 album Mirage).

Although not featured on their 2002 compilation The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac, an 'alternate mix' can be found on the 4-disc retrospective, 25 Years – The Chain which was released in 1992. This mix is also included on the CD single "Love Shines", which was also issued in 1992 to promote the release of 25 Years – The Chain.
