Knights in White Satin is a 1976 album composed, produced and performed by Giorgio Moroder.

Side A of the album consists almost solely of a disco version of Moody Blues' 1967 hit "Nights in White Satin", interrupted by a Moroder/Bellotte composition called "In the Middle of the Knight". The track is typical of the disco era in that it covers an entire LP side, but atypical as it is quite slow, only 110bpm, and not what was usually considered the standard at the time, 120bpm. The main theme (Knights in White Satin) has been sampled and used again by G. Moroder for the soundtrack of Alan Parker's movie, Midnight Express.
