Ronnie Milsap performs "Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In the Still of the Night)

"Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In The Still of the Night)", a single released by country music singer Ronnie Milsap. It is a medley of "Lost in the Fifties Tonight" written by Mike Reid and Troy Seals and a cover of The Five Satins' 1956 hit "In the Still of the Night".

Released in July 1985, the song was Milsap's 42nd single to be released. At the same time, it was also his 27th number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart.

Like many of his other singles, the song also fared well as a crossover hit on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts as it entered the top 10, peaking at number eight. This is his last top-10 single to appear on this chart.

The song was praised by critics and fans alike, and remains as one Milsap's most popular recordings. In a year when 51 songs rotated out of the Hot Country Singles' number-one position, "Lost in the Fifties Tonight" was one of just two songs of the group to spend more than one week at number one (it spent two, as did The Judds' "Have Mercy"), and Milsap's song was the number-one country song of 1985.

That same year, it won Milsap his fourth Grammy Award for "Best Country Vocal Performance" for a male artist.

Ronnie Milsap - Lost In The Fifties Tonight Lyrics

 

Close your eyes, baby

Follow my heart

Call on the memories

Here in the dark

We'll let the magic

Take us away

Back to the feelings

We shared when they played

In the still of the night

Hold me darlin', hold me tight, oh

So real, so right

Lost in the fifties tonight

These precious hours

We know can't survive

But love's all that matters

While the past is alive

Now and for always

Till time disappears

We'll hold each other

Whenever we hear

In the still of the night

Hold me darlin', hold me tight, say

So real, so right

Lost in the fifties tonight

Oh, so right, say

Oh, so real, so right

So real, so right
