"The Night" is a song performed by The Animals in 1983. It was the first single from their 1983 Ark reunion effort. It reached #48 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #34 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Eric Burdon wrote this song with John Sterling, who gave it to him after he wrote the initial music and lyrics about his wife Eva who was visiting her family in Sweden. John talked with her on the phone every night during her absence.[citation needed]
