Background[edit]

Sedaka first recorded the track for his 1975 album, The Hungry Years. The following year, the song was a hit single for Captain & Tennille, who had recorded his song "Love Will Keep Us Together". "Lonely Night (Angel Face)" reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number one on the Easy Listening chart in March 1976.[1] On the Cashbox chart, it also reached number one.

In Canada as well, the song went to number one on the RPM National Top Singles Chart. It hit the pole position on April 17, 1976, and stayed atop the charts for two weeks before bowing out to "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen.[2][3] It was their third of fourteen hit singles.
