Boys II Men and the Nite

Today’s Flashback song was originally by the Five Satins, but today’s version of “In the Still of the Nite” was by Boyz II Men. It was recorded a cappella for the soundtrack to the television miniseries The Jacksons: An american Dream.

If you notice the spelling of Night is incorrect you are right but it was intentional and was a popular doo-wop trend back then. Debbie Gibson also recorded a version of the song back in 1989. The Five Satins version was heard in several films, such as The Buddy Holly Story and Dirty Dancing which made it popular for a new generation.

Boys II Men’s “In the Still of the Nite” made it to #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart and #7 on the Canada Adult Contemporary Charts.
