The Night is a song by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons that was originally released in 1972. Although it failed to chart when first released, it became a popular track on the northern soul circuit, which led to a successful UK re-release in the spring of 1975, when it reached no. 7 on the Official Chart.[3]

The song sees Frankie Valli pleading with a girl that he admires to resist the advances of another guy.[4]

Valli cited this song as an example of a song that should have been a big hit on first release, but didn't chart due to poor promotion by the MoWest label.[4]
