Live Bullet Night Moves The band quickly recorded two Seger originals and a cover of the Motown hit " My World Is Empty Without You ", but before Seger left on the third day, he composed a fourth song to record.
He had been "waiting on the right moment" to record "Night Moves", as he feared a saxophone, performed by Alto Reed , would not complement it, and that lead guitarist Drew Abbott 's playing would not be satisfactory. The song was completed in fewer than ten takes, with the session dispersing momentarily to record the bridge section that consisted solely of Seger and a guitar.
Bass guitar and drums are introduced as the song's setting is described: , cornfields , '60 Chevy. While Seger actually owned a Chevy, he felt "'60s" flowed better in the song.
Piano , female backing vocals , electric guitar and organ are added as the song's emotional nostalgia builds momentum. Then suddenly it stops, as the narrative flashes forward to some period in the future, where he hums a song from Seger has claimed in interviews that he was referencing the song " Be My Baby " by the Ronettes , though that song was actually released one year later.
Seger said this passage was inspired by late-night self-analysis and "the uncertainty night represents": "I was thinking about the whole aura of nighttime, the four o'clock in the morning moment when you assess yourself, check your weaknesses. Richardson said that "the whole arrangement came together in the studio. He credited that song, in addition to the Born to Run album, with helping him complete the song: "He had like a multiple bridge, he had various different things going on, and I thought to myself, 'That's how I'll finish 'Night Moves.
To Rolling Stone Magazine critic Dave Marsh the coda after the false ending takes the song beyond the realm of nostalgia to turn it into a complete story covering both the past and the present. According to Marsh the song could be "about the sexual discovery embodied in the verses, or about the sense of loss and nostalgia captured in its coda.
Or you could say that the Bob Seger story really took place in the long silence between them, from the moment he began to play to the moment, fifteen years later, when he was finally widely heard. It debuted on the Billboard Hot chart during the week of December 11, at number 85,  gradually rising over the ensuing weeks to a peak of number four on March 12, ,  a position it held for two weeks. The song also charted in Australasian territories: in Australia , it peaked at number 25 on the national charts,  and in New Zealand , it reached a peak of number Timothy White of Crawdaddy!
Seger, for his part, has claimed that "Night Moves" is his favorite song he ever wrote, and that he continued to try and replicate it years afterward. In , nearly 20 years after the original song was released, an official accompanying music video was released. Matt LeBlanc , a friend of Isham's, was in the starring role, prior to his debut in Friends ; he later claimed that he was drunk through the whole video, having shared a bottle of tequila with Seger in the musician's motorhome immediately before the shoot.
In the video, Zuniga's dark, edgy young woman becomes an object of visual fascination for LeBlanc's clean-cut young man. Johnny Galecki and Natasha Gregson Wagner also appear in the video as a young couple. Liz Lemon sings "Workin' on my Night Cheese! From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A sample of "Night Moves", wherein Seger describes adolescent memories and sings the song's chorus.
