"Right in the Night (Fall in Love with Music)" is a song by German electronic music duo Jam & Spoon, released as the second single from their album Tripomatic Fairytales 2001. It is a Eurodance song[1] with elements from progressive and vocal trance. It is based on "Leyenda" by the classical composer Isaac Albéniz and features vocals by American vocalist Plavka, with lyrics by Nosie Katzmann. The flamenco-styled riff in the song is played by El Mar, who was trained as a classical guitarist.[2]

The single was released in October 1993 on the German label Dance Pool. It is widely regarded as one of the biggest electronic music anthems of the 1990s, reaching number one in Finland, Greece and Spain, as well as number two in Australia, Iceland and Italy in 1994. On the Eurochart Hot 100, "Right in the Night" peaked at number four. On the UK Singles Chart, the song originally peaked at number 31, but after a re-release in 1995 it reached a new peak of number 10. It has been extensively anthologised, further indicating the song's significance in trance music's evolution.

Jam & Spoon and Plavka performed the song on many different European TV-shows and concerts, like the British music chart television programme Top of the Pops, the Italian singing competition Festivalbar and the Finnish 1994 national final of Eurovision Song Contest.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard described the song as a "jumpy, disco/pop ditty that strobes with bright synths and a killer hook." They noted further that "at first, singer Plavka will have you thinking of Madonna, though her own unique tones and nuances eventually shine through. She has a field day with the song, more than holding her own against the track's busy array of sound effects."[4] In an 1997 review, the magazine described it as a "percolating ditty [that] was years ahead of its time, since the groove and synths sound as fresh as ever. And the splashes of flamenco guitars are an enticing flavor".[5] The Gavin Report wrote that "this high-energy tune should have no trouble making its way up the chart soon."[6] Music & Media commented that "this fast but mellow house track with ambient works so well that it should go a long way to establish this well-reputed remix and production duo as artists in their own right."[7] Wendi Cermak from The Network Forty wrote that "this is signature Jam & Spoon with its ethereal trance/ambient electronic rhythms, light female vocals and their excellent guitar work on the intro".[8]
