"When the Night Feels My Song" is the first single from Sounding a Mosaic, the second album from Canadian band Bedouin Soundclash. The song features a reggae/soft rock sound, and is accompanied by a music video that shows the band on various streets during the night, in Toronto, Canada. The song reached #1 on the CFNY charts in Canada. The song is what would be referred to as the "breakthrough single" for the band. The next single released was "Shelter".

The streets were not closed for the video, so anyone seen in the video was not cast, and just happened to walk by during filming. The video reached #1 on the MuchMusic Countdown charts in November 2005, after entering the chart in September of that year.

The song was also featured in a commercial for Canadian retailer Zellers and, as of September 2007, the theme song to Kid's CBC. In 2010 it also featured in Parenthood, the popular NBC comedy.[1]

It was also used on the DVD "anomaly" by Teton Gravity Research.

"...Fills My Soul"[edit]

On the album, NME Presents The Essential Bands released in November 2005, the track was listed as "When the Night Fills My Soul". The song is still referred to by this name in some places. Officially, Bedouin's own website, band record sales and iTunes all refer to the track as "...Feels My Song". The NME apparent misprint appears to be the source of this misunderstanding.


When this song was first released in the UK in 2005, it reached number 24 in the charts. However, since then the song has been used as part of the T-Mobile advertising campaign and was re-released in October 2006.

The song featured on NME's 'Essential Bands' compilation discs for both 2005 and 2006.
