Date with the Night

“Date with the Night”  is the first single from Fever to Tell by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  This single also includes the B-side “Yeah! New York” which can also be found as a bonus track on the UK release of Fever to Tell, and an exclusive remix of “Bang” from their debut EP, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (2001).  The single peaked at number sixteen on the UK’s official charts.  The song was also featured on the soundtrack for the British teen soap opera Skins.  (More from Wikipedia)
I was in Virgin Records in New Orleans not long after I moved to the Coast and heard Fever to Tell (2003) by Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing live in the store and immediately snapped it up. The two opening tracks, “Rich” and “Date with the Night” are favorites of mine, as are “Maps” and “Y Control”.
